“Fake news” — it is the single worst phrase used today. Not only is it so overplayed, but it’s so wrongly used. What is fake news, and what is Facebook trying to accomplish?
Unfortunately, fake news isn’t what you think it is. We’re not talking about headlines found on tabloid magazines, such as, “Al Pacino taken away in U.F.O.” We’re talking about “Clinton passes out at 911 ceremony.” We’re talking about, “Obama administration spies on Trump team.”
Neither Facebook nor its liberal user base cares about Al Pacino being taken away by aliens — unless it’s illegal aliens who have crossed the border five times, then it’s okay. No, what they care about it stopping the conservative voice from carrying through the halls of social media.
Facebook is launching its new tool that allows users to flag a link they believe is “fake news.” According to reports, if enough people click the link, it will be reported to one of Facebook’s “fake checking partners.” It is important to note that those listed as partners are all left-leaning outlets — many of them with questionable reporting histories, such ABC News.
If one of the partners confirms the link leads to “fake news,” then the person trying to share the link will be warned about sharing the story. It’s an absolute joke of a system.
First of all, liberal trolls will be hired by Democratic operatives to fish for links and click on the most popular of pages. Secondly, how about the stories that are developing. For example, how many times would a story about Obama wiretapping Trump Tower be flagged by liberals? It’s not fake news — the investigation is still underway.
