Facebook will be employing the services of multiple third party fact checking groups (such as Politifact and Snopes) to label fake news stories. Do you trust these third party groups will be accurate?
Any site which attempts to present the true will last only as long as they do so honestly. Once they foul up they will lose all their credibility. Let's see what happens.
Cross referencing will always be the tried and true method. Give all that power to snopes etc, and someone will get in there and mess it up.
Which is the site that has the "mostly true" "mostly false" and "pants on fire"? Is that PolitiFact? Republicans don't like that one because Trump gets "pants on fire" a lot 😂😂😂
Enough with that tired liberal media bias argument. The election had a Russian hacker bias and you were all too busy pointing fingers at CNN and NBC to notice. Plus you now have Bannon in the White House -- given Trump's comfort with denying facts, this administration might as well have the Iraqi information minister.
Do you have evidence of Russian hacking?
The big boy on the block (Snopes) is biased towards liberals.
They're all Liberal.
We need a hell no button to push!
Here's the deal with the Trumpster code, let me break it down:
LIBERAL = Zionist
SOCIALIST = Zionist
NEO-CON = Zionist
Et Cetera ad nauseum
It's all about hate, paranoia, and fear. If you're in denial or duped about what's at the root of the hardcore devotion.
Listen guys, we're all being f*cked by the globalism nonsense, but you've got it all wrong if you're looking for specific SCAPEGOATS (finite number of bad actors).
We're all in this together, facing TRENDS AND FORCES. EMERGENT PHENOMENON.
TRENDS AND FORCES. EMERGENT PHENOMENON.
This is about your paranoia of the ZIONIST-run media. Who has the balls to say it outright?
OH COME ON WITH THE PARANOIA
Too much bias
Snopes is ran by a couple of old fat fucks with several cats and Politifact is WRONG all the damn time. Its a fucking joke that Facebook is doing this. The solution is a simple one if Mark Zuckerberg wants to censor free speech and bury news than lets bury him, he is only human.
Fact checking is LIBRUL bias don't ya know
If these groups fail to do a good job, they will lose all credibility and another monitoring agency would need to replace them. We can't let fake or false news and lies go unchallenged. In time some neutral fact checking unbias organization will emerge that the public will trust. It up to us to keep any monitoring group honest.
You forgot those biased ABC guys.
After the Podesta emails, fuck no.
Liberals never read the Podesta emails. They just got little snippets while tuning into CNN. They think he's a pretty cool guy.
Russian conspiracy! (Sarcasm)
Don't like the way facebook is combating "fake" news. I'd much rather that they keep the algorithm but label potentially fake news as "potentially fake as per facebook" rather than straight up "fake news"
Particularly since Facebook has already gotten in trouble for biasing their news feed.
FUCK NO! They're all funded by George Soros. The guy funding color revelations around the world and paying for snipers in Ukraine and Dallas, funding the migrant flow, funding Hillary. They guy is a parasite. Not to mention he won all his money betting against the U.K. economy. Who knew you could bet against an entire countries economy. Some stock market we've got!
And regardless of that mess, Facebook is 100% untrustworthy in general just like all mainstream media outlets. Haven't told the truth once since Bush became president (and I didn't pay attention before that).
Politifact does a great job at what they do.
Sure they do, bitch.
All are liberal!
Won't be a fair and balanced assessment.
Facts tend to have a liberal bias.
You know it!
It's way more complex than it sounds. You'd have to do tons of background research, contacting the organizations/individuals that's published it, etc. with this opinionated world, you simply can't track everything everyone says. Let alone Facebook. Get Google on the job
Only if they start shooting at us.
Facebook is a political propaganda outlet.
Facebook is a social media platform. Te fact that people use it as a propaganda outlet isn't mark zuckerburg's fault.
Here's an idea:
Don't use Facebook. Let it burn to the ground.
The truth had a liberal bias
No it doesn't. It has a Conservative bias. That's why the left needs propagandists labeled as factcheckers—to keep the facts in check.
I don't think the truth has any political leaning.
Depends on how you look at it. It is without question highly corrosive toward the modern left.
My mom is a republican from the south, living in New York. She's been laughing through this whole mess at the fake shit her conservative friends from home are sharing on Facebook, because if you have any sense of balance and credibility, it all looks beyond ridiculous.
So does the left's fakery.
It's just fakery. There's plenty of it everywhere.
Both liberal "factcheckers"
Oh my gosh. I don't think you people understand what they mean by fake news. They're talking about the kinds of articles that you see on Facebook etc that you would call "click bait". These articles have sensational headlines and when you click on them there are advertisements and pop ups all over and you have to click through 30 pages to read the story. People end up thinking these are legitimate because the sites are always called something like "freedom news" or "USA press" that sound realistic and is something people want to identify with
Nice misinformation you got there. You're completely wrong. They are using the "propornot" list as a baseline for "fake" news. It's actually just alternative news sites that don't follow the MSM narrative.
Trusting the mass media is like trusting a serial rapist to take your 15 year old daughter to prom.
Mostly. It's probably the best option if "fake news" must be labeled. I trust it much more than if facebook itself did the labeling
Haha. So you trust George Soros?
Snopes isn't perfect but they're better than nothing.
Are they? Seriously, I think you need to give nothing another look.
Snopes is liberal, they will count anything conservative as false
George Soros, funds Snopes, oh yeah, I would really trust them not to be biased, when pigs fly 🐷👋🏻❗
I used to respect politifact but I've found that they're pretty biased too, now that I've done some research :(
All of those groups proved their biases during the recent election.
Look at over 50% of morons who prefer fake news to real, verified news groups. Astounding how entrenched some are in their emotional ideologies.......
TractorBoy ... you're the sheeple following what the biased mainstream tells you to believe rather than thinking for yourself.
The proposed factcheckers have been exposed as leftist shills. The fake news is found on CNN, MSNBC and the rest of the Soros pawns.
They're at 45% . still, that's almost half of the people.. Spooky.
The question was whether you'd trust the third party groups, not whether you like fake news or not...
Morons are people who blindly follow and do what they're told, no matter what kind of psychopath is doing the leading.
Do you Teapublicans believe ANYTHING? Or do you just go by what by what your emperor Trump tells you? Fear and doom?
Perhaps you should take a look at your own argument. Whether or not you're right, the same thing could be said about you given that you didn't actually present an argument.. Just an insult.
Nobody is going to take you seriously this way.
Lady ... as someone who is definitely taxed enough already, I'll say that I am optimistic that we have someone coming into office that knows how to make things work. We are ridding our country of a horrible ideologue who could care less about either the truth or things that matter most.
SNOPES is the biggest piece of crap that will find one little misspelled word or item of contention and say the story is false if it's about one of the Liberal Elites or the Progressive liberal agenda.
I don't trust Facebook, they freeze anyone's account who disagrees with the liberal agenda.
What is their definition of fake news?
A news story that does not conform to liberalism?
The left has three main goals. To remove the 1st,2nd and 5th amendment in the constitution.
Facebook isn't bound by the Constitution.
They are bound by Liberalism because it FEELS good to them.
So do conservatives.
Oh, I'm sure they will do a great job. Completely non partisan. Check this out. www.breitbart.com/big-journalism/2016/12/16/soros-finances-group-helping-facebook-flag-disputed-stories/
Good watch thanks.
No. The people involved already have a history of pushing stories positive about their preferred candidates and issues and suppressing the opposition.
Don't worry everyone. You're still free to believe all the fake news you want to believe.
Everyone reported the fake hijab story out of NY - instead of "if it bleeds it leads' it is now "if it offends our preferred protected class, it leads".
Why Dems lost and are classeless in losing.
Teapublicans were classless in winning. Your point?
As far as they go. A good start, but maybe not always quite enough. Independently verifiable sources and the same kind of evidence we all (I wish it was really *all* of us) rely on before accepting something as fact are what is needed, which are the things those fact checking sites usually (but maybe not always) demand before calling it as well.
Aaaand of course republicans don't trust them. Why have fact checkers when you can just make $*** up? This country is going to see its decline and fall hastened by people like the PEOTUS and his sheep. And they don't care. They'll just swallow the lies because they can't handle the reality that conservativism is a cancer to freedom and progress.
Don't forget the International Fact-Checking Network. Guess who it's funded by!
(Wait for it...)
(Wait for it...)
GEORGE "ex-nazi-collaborator" SOROS!!!
I don't trust any organization that is subject to bias or bribery (incentives to skew one way or other) to regulate and distinguish between real and "fake" news. No thankyou
The fact that they have to do it at all really speaks about how stupid and gullible people are.
A man took a rifle to a pizza restaurant and fired it because he read a fake news story that Hillary Clinton was running a child sex slavery ring out of it.
So, yea, people are gullible. Dangerously so.
And how extremely desperate they are because they've lost the narrative. They've lost control and they're fluttering around like little bitches trying to put the oxygen back in their tanks, but they're already underwater and the air doesn't go back in the tank.
What the ??? 👆
Biased, almost assuredly
More accurate than people posting randomly without any oversight. As long as they just label them as false without censoring them, I'm fine with that.
Or maybe people can be allowed to think for themselves, rather than having their overlords deem what is okay to read.
Wasn't advocating for that...just for disclaimer statements on patently false info and maybe a link to some research/facts that prove it. Make it easier for people to do their own fact checking.
Nope. You're advocating censorship and the end of free speech.
"BS Alert: 95% of what you are about to hear on [Mark Levin/Limbaugh/Hannity/O'Reilly/Alex Jones/Fox News] is pure nonsense, and here are a few links that prove it. Enjoy the show". Censorship would be not airing the shows.
If you listen to them closely, they'll even say they're talk shows, not news shows, and they're expressing their OPINIONS. They say this, yet the majority of their listeners still believe every word they say.
I'd advocate censoring Alex Jones. He is a laughable whackjob. He's an idiot, and you can point and laugh at his idiocy, but it's scary that people actually believe this fool (I'm kidding on the first part)
