All the News That’s Facebook/Snopes Approved to Print

by
December 16, 2016

Facebook is going to start fact-checking, labeling, and burying fake news and hoaxes in its News Feed, the company said Thursday.

The decision comes after Facebook received heated criticism for its role in spreading a deluge of political misinformation during the US presidential election, like one story that falsely said the Pope had endorsed Donald Trump.

To combat fake news, Facebook has teamed up with a shortlist of media organizations, including Snopes and ABC News, that are part of an international fact-checking network led by Poynter, a nonprofit school for journalism in St. Petersburg, Florida.

Starting as a test with a small percentage of its users in the US, Facebook will make it easier to report news stories that are fake or misleading. Once third-party fact-checkers have confirmed that the story is fake, it will be labeled as such and demoted in the News Feed.

A company representative told Business Insider that the social network will also use other signals, like algorithms that detect whether a story that appears fake is going viral, to determine if it should label the story as fake and bury it in people’s feeds.

    Come on people, time to get together and completely disavow any social media that censors free speech. Many investigations going on revealing Far Left satanist as they are doing whatever they can to add the final destruction of America and Trump. LAST CHANCE FREEDOM IS NEVER FREE !!!

    Alec baldwin said he is leaving the country if Trump is elected. Why is he still here. Those of you who think he is funny or relevant need to consider that he does not tell the truth. Alec and Barbara and Adele and all the other self confident people who think people would miss them need to pack their things and leave. That includes Miley Cyrus and all the other idiots.

  • dmttbt

    I just want to comment on the story above that says that facebook is going to be checking on the fake news stories on facebook with the help of ABC news.Abc is one of the outlets responsible for the fake news. All the worry about the rioting crowds is simple to put in prospective. That is a number of hired guns who are bused in and provided with signs and they cause the crowd that is there to protest peacefully to go into A FRENZY ALONG WITH THEM. ARREST THEM ALL AND SEND THEM TO JAIL.

  • dmttbt

    The republicans are laying the people against the democrats and the democrats are playing the public against the republicans and the fact is they are both correct. Neither party is for the people of the united states. have you seen the republicans stepping up to support Trump on the wall or on the immigration or on tax reform???? Have you seen any democrats stepping up for these things?? No and you will not see it because they don’t want it. They have been promising the same things for years while they rob the tax payers. They all want to stay in their jobs real badly. Why do you think that is???

  • Rob1911a1

    So Snopes and ABC news, neither of whom have much to do with ‘factual’ news – usually quite the opposite – are going to act as ‘fact checkers’? That’s like having the fox guarding the hen house! As per Wolfman, who watches the watchers?

  • justinwachin

    This noble idea will work as long as the judges are fair and unbiased. That means this is likely to soon become a way for censoring stories unfavorable to a news organization’s viewpoint or candidate.

    Who has seen the latest news cast by Sheriff Arpaio?
    “Sheriff Arpaio Proves Obama Birth Certificate Forged – YouTube”

  • Buford

    Exerting editorial control over someone else’s work without their approval is not fact-checking; it is censorship, plain and simple. A liberal’s “facts” are a lot like their “truths”….. instead of being immutable things, they are skewed into “facts, as I see them.” They are much like the blind men who once tried to describe an elephant, determing “truth” from an agendized partial set of facts. What is worse than Pravda? Multinational corporate news, censorship dictated from outside interests around the world. Pravda may have been a propaganda machine, but it was their propaganda machine. These 6 all-controlling entities are hardly a free press, operating in the interests of the American citizen.

    Whoop-de-doo!… Snopes and ABC News! Not too impartial in my view. How about starting with labeling the story that is all over the news about Russia hacking the DNC as “fake news”? According to Julian Assange, “Our source is not the Russian government… no, it’s not a state party”. Facebook monitoring news on its website is rather like Loretta Lynch monitoring Hillary’s use of a private server.

  • sox83cubs84

    So we have a leftist social media outlet employing leftist news sites and networks to judge the truthfulness of news stories. What could possibly go wrong (major sarcasm)?

  • Betty

    this from a company that is a liberal . I already have trouble reading anything good about Trump and ABC is definately bias

    • Effie

      You need to use alternate news such as; Alex Jones, Mike Revero, Paul Watson,lisa Haven, Gavin Mcinnes, No more fake news, Mike dice, laura Ingrum, Ann Culter, Milo Yonopolous, you can find on you tube. Some of the spelling might be a bit off on names .

  • dmttbt

    Using ABC news is one of the most stupid things I have ever heard of. Zuckerburg came out as a supporter of Hillary Clinton as to my best memory and why the hell would you use the people who are most responsible of false reporting as the ones to clean it up! The fact that at the bottom of the page that has this article in it they are advertising things like the question of what one of Obama’s daughter’s net worth is? Read it and you will still never know. Or there are the pictures of actors that have the caption that they were taken from us too soon in life. Look those up and you will not find that those actors died or walked on water because it is bull manure. I said idiots once and was reprimanded .
    The facts are that the ads that are false should result in arrest and prosecution. To find false statements and advertisements is not a difficult task, pretty much everything that ABC news comes out with is totally false or half true. When we have all these people misleading the public who are depending on Facebook to inform us and they allow these things to go on and then they do nothing. They also mentioned journalism, are you kidding me?

  • Askjrsk

    I do trust facebook. They ask for name address date of birth and solicit for a photo. On a recent international cruise a seminar held aboard ship about caution centered on fact that this information are enough for identity theft, one who posts private information is at high risk. Won’t find me on facebook.

  • gvette

    Mark Zuckerberg is a flaming liberal. That says it all.

    • sox83cubs84

      Emphasis on “flaming” or “liberal”?

      • gvette

        Flaming, i’d say!

  • Tiger

    They can all congratulate themselves on how deftly they have helped H and O the HO’s of America take us to the brink of One World Order.

    Now with this Russian connection nonsense, wasn’t Russia but Comey of the FBI who put Hillary on the hotseat so we know this won’t end as long as there is breath in the body of the Shadow government spoken on in the leaks on the 7th floor, O and all.

    They are plenty long winded now here is the article where a British representative tells all no Russian connection to any Wikileaks and O and all know it.

    Personally I would love the day that someone throws a pile of manure in Josh Earnest’s lying face.

      Tiger, remember, Josh is just the spoksmouth of Barry. He lies, yes, but they are Obama’s lies.I’d hate to think what his other jobs are, beings Barry is gay.

      • Askjrsk

        Ohhhh. Michell today says she has no hope for the future?????

        • dmttbt

          Great because I have no hope for Michelle. Have all the people missed the fact that she and Obama are socialist communist Muslims?

          • Askjrsk

            I hope not. That’s important facts.

          • Effie

            Yes, true and most of the people still have no clue! Also has anyone looked at all the cabinet members in DNC side of the fence. I bet they were not vetted and most are stupid as well as senile and mentally ILL ! Trump needs help, he can’t do this enormous job alone and needs the American people more than ever so lets do all we can to assist……..

        • gvette

          I herd that. I can think of a lot of things I think the porch monkey’s future should hold! None of them pleasant! As for the countrys future, it’s looking better every day, now.

          • Askjrsk

            We have no bananas today.

        • Effie

          I hear that both the Obamas and Clintons are getting a divorce, no shock to me as they were faking everything and was a setup all along !

          • Askjrsk

            Hadn’t heard that. But wouldn’t be surprised. They deserve each other.

        • Effie

          Well I am sure that statement may be correct since I hear they are going after Soro’s in Europe and next here as when his funds stop most of his OWO contribution’s to anti- American institutions around the world will stop. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=afnsgBdc5qw
          Maybe President Trump will get back most of what the people have lost !

      • Tiger

        Oh you are naughty LOLOL. Yes he is kinda cutsey.

    • Askjrsk

      Yes

      • Tiger

        One of few words but potent like the cut of your jib.

        • Askjrsk

          Yes

    • sox83cubs84

      My daschund wants to lift his leg on him (and Ovomit, too).

      • Tiger

        LMAO can you hold it and let it hit a little higher than the shoe area? Would like to see an elephant urinate on them.

        • sox83cubs84

          Why stop there? Let’s bring Godzilla over from Japan to do the job. Maybe he’ll wash them away into the Potomac River? 😉

          • Tiger

            LMAO what a wonderful visual. But on the side of Right we are going to have to prosecute some people when Trump gets into office. They have been “Perverts Running Wild” too long and breaking the laws we have on the books related to inciting violence. Trump’s DOJ and AG need to bring Michael Moore, Obama, Hillary, the leader of BLM and other up on charges have the trials and let them be put in the cages these animals belong.

          • sox83cubs84

            Yours is an even better visual. Mine was based on a fictional character. Yours could very well actually happen!

          • Tiger

            Seems the people on the 7th floor spoken of in the leaks will now be joined by another Shadow Government that O is building to fight Trump for 4 years. Afraid that something is going to give. If these Electorates pull something funny we will have more of a mayhem than now.

          • sox83cubs84

            Might be. Even with Trump winning, we may have to still be ready to “lock and load” if the Communist Democraps go too far in their antics.

    • dmttbt

      Comey was in charge of the investigation and after they had completed the investigation and he was asked point blank,” did Hillary not tell the truth to the congress and he said no she did not. Did Hillary not tellthe truth in her testimony and he said no she did not tell the truth. Did she destroy e-mails that were subpoenaed? Yes she did. She did al these things but Comey said they could not prosecute because no charges had been brought against her. All I can say is why the hell not???

      • Tiger

        Right but a new AG in town and a new POTUS, from what he said in his speeches I believe he knows the score from Soros on. If he really wants to bring our Republic back he is going to have to prosecute and take them out.

  • kbfallon

    OK…if that’s how they want to roll, then we should boycott companies who use them for advertising and what not.

        • Askjrsk

          Sure ‘ nuff

          • Tiger

            Yepper the Muslims are really vile and when you fight them they gang up on you, report you to Google as violent and inciting hate. But they can say the filthiest of things and they do plus tell you and they do, they are here, they are going to rape and decapitate soon as they get the go sign but we can’t say anything about them.

          • Askjrsk

            True

          • sox83cubs84

            Radical Muslimes are scum.

            They are here by the hundreds of thousands according to our military and our FBI, CIA and Homeland Security.

          • sox83cubs84

            Yeah…courtesy of the Supreme Sissy and the Communist Democraps.

          • Tiger

            LMAO “Supreme Sissy” his diaper head sure showed.

          • sox83cubs84

            Oh, I’ve got a bunch of good names for him besides that: President Puke, President Pansy, President Urkel, the false messiah, the Muslim sympathizer, the terrorist appeaser and of course, good ol’ Ovomit.

          • Tiger

            LMAO oohhhhhh LMAO if the feelings of discontent and contempt for this man could take him out he would have shriveled up and blown away long ago.

          • sox83cubs84

            I’ve got a few for Mrs. Obama, also. Moochelle, the First Fatass, and the Angry Black Woman come to mind.

          • Tiger

            OHHHHHHH indeed she is indeed the one and only truly Angry Black Woman and being a transgender only makes it worse for him. Trump’s gorgeous wife along with Sarkozy’s look like dolls up against this huge thing.

    • kbfallon

      Hey Tiger–I figured out that they were putting me in “time out” and wouldn’t even allow me to post a number of times…..the libs are making sure that only positive messages about them go out. CENSORSHIP anyone?

      • gvette

        Funny you should mention that. When ever I’m in Facebook jail, I can’t post on any other site during the 30 days.

      • dmttbt

        I certainly would not want the government to be in charge of policing the internet or anything else for that matter. ABC news might be even worse. The government consists of people we elected and sent to do our business, now we have a 20 trillion dollar deficit and cannot even cover the entitlements they have supported. Would it be a terrible loss if we had an enemy and we lost it?

      • Tiger

        Wow really????? Google tried that with me but I got past it by playing cool for awhile they forgot about me so back at it strong. Gotta lay low now and again.

    • Askjrsk

      No

    • dmttbt

      The problem with the politicians and the internet is that people like us can say what we believe and they do not like that. Now we are finding that is also controlled.

      • Tiger

        Appears so I have been thrown off so many sites can’t keep count. But hey badge of honor.

        • dmttbt

          I enjoy your comments. The truth shall set us free unless the government intervenes.

          • Tiger

            Thank you and yes it appears these last few weeks of O is going to be a fight to the finish I am getting those red signs on my posts again saying opps something happened. I sing onto Disqus with Google so maybe they are going to take my account down. They do it to others I am due.

    • sox83cubs84

      Plenty of us have your back, Tiger!

      • Tiger

        Thank you so much and I surely am with all of you. Now the news is that Fake news started with Conservative Talk radio and one of the first fake stories concerned the guy who died who exposed Hillary, but then everybody dies that opposes Hillary. Seven during this election the last one the woman investigating the Clinton Foundation Child Sex Trafficking another one who committed suicide with a shot to the back of the head. Contortionists these people.

        So anyway I think they are hitting us hard right about now cause I can see the next 4 years is going to be nothing but stories of Hillary’s innocence and the wicked Fake news.

    Facebook already subtly censors any story that shows Israel or Jews in a negative light. Even when they are factually accurate. For example, the share option will not be shown on such stories. This prevents circulation of vital truth. What did you expect from someone named Zuckerberg?

    • dmttbt

      My point exactly. Then they say they will have to find the false statements. Holy crap like that is a problem. The people who control Facebook are responsible to their readers to make sure the things they print are true and I mean absolutely true. Was it to difficult to know if the pope supported Trump or not? In my humble opinion if you are running you want the support of every one you can get. I will say however I would make a statement that I would not want the support of the Pope we have now. He is a socialist if there ever was one.

      • dmttbt

        The companies who advertise on Facebook and pay should insist they get rid of the false statements and if you want to find false statements just look at almost anything an established politician says. Hillary and Obama in particular.
