Facebook Marks Articles About Data Breach As “Spam” on Facebook

Published

on

After a Friday data breach that resulted in 50 million compromised accounts, a Silicon Valley tech giant marked articles reporting on the breach as “spam” on its own platform.

“Facebook has blocked users from posting articles from the Guardian the AP about the social media platform’s latest user data breach, marking them as ‘spam.’ The company later reversed decision, which it called an ‘error,’” according to Breitbart. 

Shaun Hair, executive editor of the Western Journal, first noticed the Facebook scam, and reported it on his Twitter account:

“Watch tell me the Guardian article link that busts them on a privacy breach is spam,” he said with an accompanying video.

When Breitbart recreated the scenario by trying to post the same article, they received the same error message as Hair.

“Our security systems have detected that a lot of people are posting the same content, which could mean that it’s spam. Please try a different post,” the error message said.

A Twitter user name Manuel Ramos received a similar message when trying to post an article about the data breach written by AP.

“just tried to post the version of the story on my wall and blocked it,” he said, attaching a photo of the error message.

Facebook brushed off the incident as an innocent mistake in a statement:

“Our automated systems incorrectly marked two news articles – one from The Guardian and another from the AP – as spam. We fixed the issue as soon as we were made aware of it, and people should be able to share both articles. We apologize for the inconvenience.”

Facebook Directly Censoring Tucker Carlson in Advance of November Election

They fear Tucker Carlson.

Published

on

Facebook is censoring Tucker Carlson just weeks away from the November 3rd presidential election, hoping to silence America’s most popular political news figure.

Tucker Carlson hosts the most popular cable television show in American history on Fox News, and he’s one of the only journalists(although he eschews the term) that Americans who distrust oligarch-controlled corporate media rely on for information.

Facebook notified Tucker’s page on the social media giant that his posts would have “reduced distribution” for what they’re falsely claiming is “repeated sharing of fake news.”

Facebook has previously censored an interview Tucker conducted with a Chinese dissident who claims that coronavirus was engineered in a laboratory by Chinese government researchers.

Tucker is the most prominent political figure to criticize the alliance of big business with the establishment Democrat Party, most notably the tech monopolies of Silicon Valley. Facebook has now taken a page out of the Chinese or Soviet political playbook in censoring its own critics.

Left-wing whiners have been furiously clamoring for Facebook to censor more conservative and right-wing figures, pointing to the pitiful engagement that liberal pundits and politicians receive on the platform in comparison to figures like Tucker, Ben Shapiro, Donald Trump, and Mark Levin.
