Facebook Launches Fake News Filter in France Ahead of Presidential Elections

Starting today, Facebook, in conjunction with Google, will be blocking unsavory news from their platforms in France — thanks to the very generous and progressive assistance of 8 liberal news agencies — including the far left Le Monde. Having learned his lesson during the US elections, CEO Mark Zuckerberg wants to ensure the people of France only get to see the right news and information — generously shielding them from fake news and right wing disinformation campaigns — like global warming is a hoax.

Effective immediately, users will get to mark news articles they deem to be fake. Partners will pass judgment upon them and also get to tag them with an icon — all for the benefit of the 24 million idiot users in France who are, seemingly, unable to decipher the news themselves.

GENEROSITY WITHOUT BOUNDARIES.

Similar projects are being launched in Germany and the United States — fettering out hoaxes and fake news — with the help of ultra left wing Snopes, ABC News and Associated Press.

It’s ‘their’ platform and can do with it as they like. If you do not like it, don’t use the platform.

    Fox and the Republicunts invented fake news. Your posts are like pissing into the wind; you are getting it all over yourself.

    Facebook has, let’s call it, close to 2 billion active users. Therefore there are 2 billion losers in the world.

    Such a noble cause, protecting the cute kitty cats and head choppers from the evil Nazis. All from his walled Hawaiian compound!

    Who clicks anything on FB? The 3rd party fact checkers are going to be pulling some pretty major hours with all of the dr Oz type stuff pumped day in and day out.

    “Any negative polls are fake news”

    That’s what Trump tweeted today. Now I know you are all Trump shills who secretly envy the lives of the liberals living in our great walkable vibrant cities while you wallow in sterile suburbia or redneck rural America. But those jobs that the Mexicans stole from you aren’t coming back, sorry. Stop trading stock symbols like parasites on our financial system and try contributing to our society.

      What are you trying to say? Spit it out man.

      I’m sure Mexicans and Indians took your job and your girl friend along time back. Get over it already

    It’s bizarre that grown adults are serious about this. It’s child like.

    Everyone knows that ‘facts’ are all left leaning BS. The only thing that is real is alt facts.

    As for Fake News – Benjamin Franklin was early in the game some 300 years ago:

    “A Witch Trial at Mount Holly

    BURLINGTON, Oct. 12. [1] Saturday last at Mount-Holly, about 8 Miles from this Place, near 300 People were gathered together to see an Experiment or two tried on some Persons accused of Witchcraft.”
