Facebook to Impose New Policy of Investigating Posts for “Misinformation”

Published

on

Facebook has announced that the social media company will begin implementing a new policy of removing “misinformation” that “leads to violence”.

While it is currently a violation of Facebook’s terms of service to post content that directly calls for violence, the new policy will cover what Facebook is calling “Fake News”, that the company is now arguing can lead to violence.

“There are certain forms of misinformation that have contributed to physical harm, and we are making a policy change which will enable us to take that type of content down,” Facebook said in a statement. “We will begin implementing the policy during the coming months.”

According to Facebook, the policy is being implemented in response to what they are calling the spread of “anti-Muslim hate speech “ on the platform. Facebook has been accused of allowing anti-Muslim rhetoric on their platforms, which some say has led to attacks against Muslims in South East Asia.

“We have identified that there is a type of misinformation that is shared in certain countries that can incite underlying tensions and lead to physical harm offline,” said Tessa Lyons, a Facebook product manager. “We have a broader responsibility to not just reduce that type of content but remove it.”

Facebook has faced a lot of criticism throughout the years for the way the social media platform has been used to spread threats of violence. However, the company has struggled to create a healthy balance between respecting free speech and banning violent content.

United Nations investigators and human rights groups have accused Facebook of facilitating violence against Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar by allowing anti-Muslim hate speech and false news.

On the flip side, Facebook has also been accused of allowing Muslim terrorists, specifically ISIS, to use the social media platform as a way to spread terrorist propaganda and recruit for the Islamic state.

The new policy will also be implemented on Instagram, which is owned by Facebook.

During an interview, Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook’s CEO, said the company is working to differentiate between offensive speech and speech that incites violence. He used the example of those who deny the Holocaust, as speech that is offensive but doesn’t incite violence. Zuckerberg’s comments became a controversy in itself, causing Jewish groups to question whether he was suggesting Holocaust denial should be allowed on Facebook.

Zuckerberg later released a statement, saying, ““I personally find Holocaust denial deeply offensive, and I absolutely didn’t intend to defend the intent of people who deny that.”

Posts that currently violate the company’s community standards and are removed by Facebook include “hate speech”, nudity and direct threats of violence.

Facebook has also begun targeting posts that are classified as “fake” by a group of “independent fact checkers” the company has implemented as a way to control political discourse, which many have argued is a form of Conservative censorship. If the “fact checkers” decide that a post is “fake”, the post is “downranked” on a user’s News Feed so that they are not promoted or given a lot of exposure across the social media platform.

In other words, Facebook has hired independent “fact checkers” from various left wing organizations that are deciding whether or not what a user posts is factual or worthy of exposure.

Recently, Facebook also began labeling certain posts as “fake news” by placing information boxes under those posts as a way to encourage users to look at other Facebook approved news sources.

Welcome to the information war, where you are only allowed to post and believe what the Left-wingers in Silicon Valley decide is appropriate and “factual”.

Mailchimp Issues New Terms of Service Banning All ‘Misleading’ Content ‘in Their Sole Discretion’

More Orwellian censorship from Big Tech.

The popular email service, Mailchimp has released new terms of service that call for the banning of any “misleading” content “in their sole discretion,” particularly when it pertains to narratives not approved by the official media.

“We’ve updated our language to further clarify our Rules (Section 17 of STOU), which state that Mailchimp does not allow the distribution of Content that is, in our sole discretion, materially false, inaccurate, or misleading in a way that could deceive or confuse others about important events, topics, or circumstances,” the new terms of service read.

Podcaster and conservative activist Tracy Beanz drew attention to Mailchimp’s problematic change in their terms of service in a social media post:

This is occurring in response to the infamous laptop-from-hell leaks that show Hunter Biden in all kinds of compromising situations, as his years of being a crack-loving hooker fiend finally catch up with him. In an attempt to protect the fledgling presidential campaign of his father, Big Tech entities have conspired to censor the story but to no avail.

Big League Politics published a story showing how alternative news outlets are being targeted in this coordinated attack on free speech by these tech monopolies:

Twitter has exploded in an onslaught of dishonest left-wing censorship, targeting conservative-leaning media outlets for temporary bans and suspensions in the wake of a series of Hunter Biden corruption reports.

The New York Post- one of the largest newspapers in the entire country- has been locked down by Twitter since initially reporting the Hunter Biden laptop story earlier this month. The Post hasn’t tweeted since October 14th, having been silenced by the tech monopoly for almost two weeks in the heat of the presidential election.

The Gateway Pundit, one of the most viral and popular conservative news sites, was placed onto a 12-hour Twitter suspension for reporting on contents released from Hunter Biden’s laptop. GP reporter Cassandra Fairbanks confirmed that the site had been placed on a 12-hour suspension on Friday.

Big League Politics was placed on a 12-hour Twitter suspension on Saturday night, with the platform arbitrarily citing BLP’s #DetroitLeaks reporting. Remarkably, one of the tweets found to violate the Twitter rules was none other than an unedited video of a Michigan poll worker instructor speaking!

It violates the Twitter rules to record and play audio from a public elections official explaining processes and rules for poll workers, apparently.

Mainstream media “journalists” are instead frantically demanding more weak minded censorship on the part of Silicon Valley oligarchs.

Big Tech has demonstrated gross negligence by enacting the Orwellian nightmare in a desperate attempt to oust President Trump from office. Their electoral interference schemes are worse than anything the Russians could ever devise.
