(November 3, 2016)
This post may be the most important post you’ll read on not just the 2016 election, but the entire electoral system that legitimates the U.S. republic of representative democracy. The post is long, with multiple sections, so pace yourself accordingly. I suggest you bookmark this webpage so that you can return to read or re-read.
Jim Stone first posted about this two days ago on Nov. 1, 2016.
Unsure about Stone, who calls himself an “independent journalist” (based in Japan) and who writes in a less-than-clear or reader-friendly manner, I refrained from writing about his post.
Then InfoWars picked this issue up a day later on November 2.
What is claimed is that a hidden web site of NBC affiliate WRCBtv in Chattanooga, Tenn., shows pre-determined final vote counts for an election that hasn’t yet occurred — the 2016 presidential election scheduled for November 8.
Below is a screenshot Jim Stone took of the election results on WRCBtv’s hidden webpage, showing Hillary Clinton winning with 343 electoral votes and 42% of the popular vote. As Stone puts it: “SCAM ELECTION ALREADY CONFIRMED. TRUMP LOSES.”
Stone and InfoWars say the predetermined election results are provided by Worldnow.com.
So what is WorldNow?
This is what Wikipedia says, with a lot of jargon:
“WorldNow is a New York-based software company . . . [that] offers the only integrated media platform enabling broadcasters, operators and media companies to easily create, acquire, manage, analyze, monetize and distribute media assets (text, images and videos) across all digital platforms and on-air systems in a unified, end-to-end workflow . . . . Worldnow’s customers include CBS, COX, Dispatch, Fox Television, Meredith Corporation, Media General and Raycom Media . . . . On July 29, 2015, WorldNow announced its sale to Frankly, a San Francisco-based provider of white label social media services and mobile messaging apps . . . . In 2012, Fox Television Stations migrated its websites to WorldNow’s platform . . . becoming WorldNow’s second largest client (as of 2015, they have since switched to Lakana). In 2011, Meredith Corporation . . . began a four-year contract with WorldNow to operate its station websites. In January 2013, Media General reached a deal to move its eighteen stations to WorldNow, beginning with WFLA-TV.”
A “media platform” is a “platform,” medium or means of communicating news, such as a newspaper, TV station, Facebook,Twitter, or even a blog like FOTM.
I typed “worldnow.com” in the URL bar of my laptop, but was brought to the webpage of Frankly Inc. with this URL:http://franklyinc.com/.
Frankly’s “About” page says:
WorldNow, the original broadcast arm of Frankly, was founded in 1999. We now serve over 200 stations across the United States as a true partner, offering customization services and strategic trainings on industry best practices for user engagement and monetization.
Frankly’s “Investors” page says:
“Our customers include NBC, ABC, CBS and FOX affiliates, as well as top fashion brands, professional sports franchises and global organizations.”
In other words, WorldNow is a media software company that provides real-time data – such as election results – to local TV news stations like WRCBtv.
You can verify this for yourself by going on WRCBtv’s website:http://www.wrcbtv.com/. Scroll down to the bottom of WRCBtv’s webpage, and you’ll see this in the bottom left of the webpage:
WRCBtv.com is “powered by frankly” and Frankly is the owner of WorldNow. In other words, WorldNow provides the content or the news for WRCBtv.com.
Stone claims that for now, WRCBtv.com’s (predetermined) election results page is hidden, awaiting WorldNow to publicly post the (fake) election results sometime in the evening of November 8, Election Day.
I can verify that the webpage is currently hidden. Here’s what I did:
- I typed “ftpcontent2.worldnow.com/wrcb/elections/elections.html”in the URL bar, but was brought to a McAfee Web Advisor pagewarning of “Trouble ahead” and asking me”Are you sure you want to go there?”
- I then did a Yahoo search for “WRCBtv.com decision 2016”. My search’s results pagehas this at the top:
Note that it says “Decision 2016: Complete Election Results Posted.”
