Hey FACEBOOK Shareholders… How do you feel about THIS decision?
What’s next? Will they be replaced by someone more reputable like ‘Ashley Madison’?
One of the websites Facebook is to use to arbitrate on ‘fake news’ is involved in a bitter legal dispute between its co-founders, with its CEO accused of using company money for prostitutes.
Snopes.com will be part of a panel used by Facebook to decide whether stories which users complain about as potentially ‘fake’ should be considered ‘disputed’.
But the website’s own troubles and the intriguing choice of who carries out its ‘fact checks’ are revealed by DailyMail.com, as one of its main contributors is disclosed to be a former sex-blogger who called herself ‘Vice Vixen’.
Snopes.com will benefit from Facebook’s decision to allow users to report items in their newsfeed which they believe to be ‘fake’.
It is asking a number of organizations to arbitrate on items which are reported or which Facebook staff think may not be genuine and decide whether they should be marked as ‘disputed’.
…He has since remarried, to a former escort and porn actress who is one of the site’s staff members.
They are accusing each other of financial impropriety, with Barbara claiming her ex-husband is guilty of ’embezzlement’ and suggesting he is attempting a ‘boondoggle’ to change tax arrangements, while David claims she took millions from their joint accounts and bought property in Las Vegas. —DailyMail
For whatever reason, Snopes has been elevated in public opinion to umpire of truth.
Do people think they are a corporation with a ‘crack team of experts’ people employed day and night to determine what is or isn’t true?
It’s a husband and wife team employing five people on the content side.
Let’s consider what we’re looking at: Facebook… a Corporation worth HUNDREDS of BILLIONS … is putting its reputation in the hands of selected people.
One of those websites is run … at this point … by FIVE people responsible for content.
ONE of those ‘fact-checkers’ is a home-wrecking PORN ‘actress’ and ‘escort’ (read: whore). Another of those ‘fact-checkers’ left his wife for her.
That’s even before we break down the biases we’ve covered elsewhere.
Why in the HELL would ANY FACEBOOK SHAREHOLDER allow the company’s reputation to be put in the hands of THESE clowns?
