Facebook Fact Checking Opinion in the news

| No Comments

Heh - from Pixy Misa:

The BMJ - British Medical Journal - published an expose of dubious experimental controls at a company contracted by Pfizer to assist in testing their Bat Flu vaccine.

Facebook, as is its wont, "fact checked" this.

The BMJ - which has been published since 1840 and is one of the world's leading medical journals gave them both barrels, reloaded, and is standing at the ready with one eyebrow raised.  (BMJ)

Go to the link and read - a brief but though eviscerating of Facebook's "fact checking" and a statement of the truth.

Remember that Facebook went so far as to admit in public that it's fact checking is only (in their terms) constitutes protected opinion

It is the old Section 230 that Facebook hides behind.  If they are a news site, they are legally liable for what they publish. If they are an opinion site, they are in the clear.  Therefore, Facebook's fact checkers can not publish the truth.
