Quite a few news sites are now adhered to the Trust Project. This is an initiative that aims to establish a reputation system for news. It looked quite interesting, so I read a bit more. Basically the users of this system are (guess ... ) Google, Bing, etc. So this "project" aims to control what is considered true and what is not and then make sure that the official truth is the only truth?

I found further confirmation on their FAQ: <quote> I’m a freelancer? Can I get a Trust Mark? Not right now. The Trust Indicators are meant to enable people to quickly assess the trustworthiness of a story and are produced by publishers on their sites. If you’re a regular contributor, you may want to ask your clients to create an author page for you as part of the Author/Producer Information Trust Indicator</quote>

How would you build a decentralized system that could objectively measure news veracity without leading to paid content production and linking, while treating the small and big alike?

It'll be interesting to see how the independent journalism outfits funded by billionaires (The Intercept, Democracy Now etc) get their organisations into these sorts of schemes.

It'll probably be double narrative; the "rebels" will "fight" over the course of a few years using "truth" to get into the "trusted" club, and this will "prove that the people have won". The so-called truth will become carefully diluted, and mixed together with appraisals of the status quo ("this democracy is still worth fighting for!"), making it look like "the outsiders" shook up the news industry, when in fact they were just a well designed front to keep the public on-side with the establishment. Bit of New York Times/The Guardian cross-branding, then everything's exactly as it was again, except foolish people will buy the storyline and believe that everything's honest again.

Euphemisms are still a lie I hate all lies I prefer a bitter truth than the sweetest lie. I prefer that my GF says to me that she is cheating and not lie to me (if that happens I am going to kill myself)

You'd kill yourself if she lies or if she cheats? It is unclear from your wording.

I do not recommend killing yourself. Firstly, no matter how you do it is messy and inelegant. Secondly, you should not put your life at stake for something as volatile as love.

 If someone write something, he has to have proof and be liable if things are not base of the truth. But how do we find the truth?

Its all lies. All can be corrupted when money is laid to a journalist. Media is always controlled by huge companies, they can spread fear influence politicians and the crowd. Who started this bear market? Google announced BANN on ICO ads. They have banned porn sites long time ago but was there a massive publication about it?
