Hillary Clinton, Brian Williams and the Media (D) shouldn’t be lecturing ANYONE about ‘Fake News’.
Hillary made stuff up just for the hell of it.
Sniper fire in Bosnia? Right, she ‘misspoke’ and was tired.
Hillary and the Obama administration have been peddlers of ‘Fake News’ for years with terrible consequences.
The Nobel Peace Prize winner, Obama, pushed for war because of ‘Fake News’.
And blaming a YouTube video is just… deplorable.
Brian Williams… really?
It was the ‘Fake news’ pushed by the left and the Media (D) has:
– started wars
– cost lives
– increased racial tensions
– caused riots
– fueled the distrust of the police
– undermining the legitimacy of Trump’s Presidency before he even takes office
This ‘real’ issue of ‘Fake News’ itself was made up by a Hillary supporter.
And we’re supposed to believe these people about ‘Fake News’?
Give me a break!
Facebook is now going to be the arbiter of ‘truth’ and filter your news for you:
Facebook is going to start fact-checking, labeling, and burying fake news and hoaxes in its News Feed, the company said Thursday.

…A team of Facebook researchers will also review website domains and send sites that appear to be fake or spoofed (like “washingtonpost.co”) to third-party fact-checkers, a Facebook representative said. Of the 42 news organizations that have committed to Poynter’s fact-checking code of ethics, Facebook is starting out with the following four: Snopes, Factcheck.org, ABC News, and PolitiFact.
The Associated Press will also be a fact-checking partner.

Remember how Facebook was routinely suppressing Conservative news?
Gizmodo quotes several former curators suggesting that conservative news stories would be booted from the automatically generated list of trending stories for two reasons. One was if the story came from a conservative-leaning site, such as Breitbart.com or Newsmax.com, in which case curators were told to find the same story on a mainstream media site, if possible. The other was if the curator didn’t want to include the story or didn’t recognize the story as important. It’s hard to know the extent to which the latter judgments took place, but one of the former curators — a conservative — told Gizmodo, “I believe it had a chilling effect on conservative news.”
