Facebook Reveals Seven Point Plan To Eradicate "Fake News"

Tyler Durden's picture

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has a message for his billion-plus users: "you're not capable of deciding for yourself what is 'news' and what is not, so we will do it for you."

Facebook has been widely blamed - by the left-leaning mainstream media - for allowing the spread of online misinformation, amusingly much of it pro-Trump, but Zuckerberg has rejected the notion that Facebook influenced the outcome of the election or that fake news is a major problem on the service.

"Of all the content on Facebook, more than 99 percent of what people see is authentic," he wrote in a blog post on Saturday. 

 

"Only a very small amount is fake news and hoaxes."

Which is why we found it odd that since such "a very small amount" of Facebook is "fake", why the left-leaning CEO would draft up his 7-point plan for eradicating "misinformation" from the social network (via Facebook)...

A lot of you have asked what we're doing about misinformation, so I wanted to give an update.

 

The bottom line is: we take misinformation seriously. Our goal is to connect people with the stories they find most meaningful, and we know people want accurate information. We've been working on this problem for a long time and we take this responsibility seriously. We've made significant progress, but there is more work to be done.

 

Historically, we have relied on our community to help us understand what is fake and what is not. Anyone on Facebook can report any link as false, and we use signals from those reports along with a number of others -- like people sharing links to myth-busting sites such as Snopes -- to understand which stories we can confidently classify as misinformation. Similar to clickbait, spam and scams, we penalize this content in News Feed so it's much less likely to spread.

 

The problems here are complex, both technically and philosophically. We believe in giving people a voice, which means erring on the side of letting people share what they want whenever possible. We need to be careful not to discourage sharing of opinions or to mistakenly restrict accurate content. We do not want to be arbiters of truth ourselves, but instead rely on our community and trusted third parties.

 

While the percentage of misinformation is relatively small, we have much more work ahead on our roadmap. Normally we wouldn't share specifics about our work in progress, but given the importance of these issues and the amount of interest in this topic, I want to outline some of the projects we already have underway:

 

  1. Stronger detection. The most important thing we can do is improve our ability to classify misinformation. This means better technical systems to detect what people will flag as false before they do it themselves.
  2. Easy reporting. Making it much easier for people to report stories as fake will help us catch more misinformation faster.
  3. Third party verification. There are many respected fact checking organizations and, while we have reached out to some, we plan to learn from many more.
  4. Warnings. We are exploring labeling stories that have been flagged as false by third parties or our community, and showing warnings when people read or share them.
  5. Related articles quality. We are raising the bar for stories that appear in related articles under links in News Feed.
  6. Disrupting fake news economics. A lot of misinformation is driven by financially motivated spam. We're looking into disrupting the economics with ads policies like the one we announced earlier this week, and better ad farm detection.
  7.  Listening. We will continue to work with journalists and others in the news industry to get their input, in particular, to better understand their fact checking systems and learn from them.

 

Some of these ideas will work well, and some will not. But I want you to know that we have always taken this seriously, we understand how important the issue is for our community and we are committed to getting this right.

So to clarify, Facebook will make it easier for any Tom, Dick, Or Harriet to complain about a story that will necessarily cut the revenues from that entity and will rely on 'fact-checking' organizations, establishment 3rd parties, and the mainstream media for input.

Well what could go wrong?

As we noted previously, while Facebook (or Google) have every right to tweak their ad policies however they see fit - especially if in the process their own ad revenue decline, as both companies retain a portion of the ad proceeds they pay out to content providers - the move is yet another step on a slippery slope, one which begins with determining just what is considered "fake news" and ends with blanket internet censorship along ideological lines.

Which we find especially ironic considering much of the "pro Clinton" press was terrified that it would be Trump who would be the one to hint at or enforce censorship. It seems the media does not need Trump for that: it can do it quite well on its own.

If you want to run a business, be a businessman...if you want to be political, be a politician...if you want to do both, you're in for a lesson in "DON'T PISS OFF HALF YOUR POTENTIAL CUSTOMER BASE"...yes, I know, Trump is a businessman...and he will LOSE A FORTUNE because of his foray into politics.

Who would take truth lessons from a little weasel like Zuckerberg who double crossed his schoolfriends aand enriched himself on their creativity and hard work.

NASA going back to the Moon is actually more real than the Mission to Earth/Climate Science crap they have been pushing down our throats since they got out of the business of looking for a real way to help humanity survive something real happening to the Earth, like an Earth-killing asteroid.

Wondering what should be Pres. Trump's first move once he takes the Oath of Office? Here's the answer: Immediately move to take temporary control of, and to permanently break-up, the information empires of Facebook, Google, Yahoo, Twitter, Instagram, and MSN.com.

You knew it was coming - it was only a matter of time. And the time is now - when the Liberal Lunatics make their move to shut down the First Amendment for all except the Corporate Media.

Which means that even though they've lost the race for the presidency, the George Soros funded, Hillary and Bill Clinton led, Liberal Lunatics populated, Purple Revolution is powering down the runway, headed for take-off speed, ready to fly its mission to take away your freedoms by bombing the Constitution out of existence.

Mark Zuckerberg, recently referred to as the "corporate fascist of America's Information Culture," is earning that title with his so-called "7-Point Plan to Eradicate Misinformation."

In short, the federal courts can't shut down a news outlet on the basis of prepublication concerns, but those corporations named above will shut down the information organizations that put Hillary on ice by cutting off their access to lookups, trending, and the Big One: advertising revenues.

The scam is the phrase "fake news." A nobody assistant professor dreamed up a "Fake News List" with no criteria for inclusion beyond being opposed to Hillary.

Chalk up another one for the outright thought police chains today's academics throw on everything that doesn't line up with their Liberal Lunatic agenda.

So Zuckerberg - the man who stole the source code for Facebook from two partners - which they later got a little back in winning a lawsuit against him - is now sinking even deeper into his psychotic sociopathic fantasy of ruling the world through the CIA/NSA's first tier facial recognition database.

The real rebels against America's Constitution are the elements of The Deep State. Use DuckDuckGo.com - which doesn't track your movements on the Internet - as your search engine, and make that phrase your first lookup.

This is the real ruling elite of America - tightly tied to the Globalists. George Soros is the paymaster, but we are talking about entire industries that make up the composition of The Deep State.

So the Purple Revolution has fired its first shot in rebellion against America. They caused upsetting circumstances with their thug riots and beat-downs.

But now they are playing for keeps. If they can shut down the organizations that told you the truth about Hillary's life of slime, you will never hear another truthful statement from the mass media again.

The Liberal Lunatics have organized and begun the Purple Revolution against Constitutional America.

If you intend to live a life with freedom of the press and information distribution, we had better organize as well.

And we better start now - because the troops of the Deep State's Purple Revolution are moving to shut down the information distributors - just like they do in every imposition of a dictatorship.

Stay tuned as we begin to get our forces together to combat the Purple Revolution.

You knew the Liberal Lunatics would move a take-over of Constitutional America.

This is the first step.

1. Let me make it easy for the Libtards... to use a sports analogy..

It does not matter if you fumble the ball after you crossed the goal line. The moment in crosses, it's  TD. 6 points!

Similarly, when Trump crossed the 270 Goal Line  (at 274 Electoral Votes), he also had a large lead in the Popular Votes. Read the previous sentence 3-7 times, until it sinks in.

IF Hillary surpassed him in the final vote count, which even the Fox statisticians predicted would likely happen, then it happened in California, where the Liberal population had a chance to pile on.

 

2. The rules say that the Electoral College votes count, not the popular vote. The two are only loosely correlated mathematically. Deal with it.

 

3. If the rules were driven by the Popular Vote, it only means that Trump would've changed his Campaign accordingly.  Thus, it in NO way predicts the outcome in favor of Hillary. Deal with it.

Bottom Line: Your Candidate lost -- and was very lucky, not to be in jail.  Deal with Reality, and ... Suck it up, Buttercup!

Exactly. If Facebook was around in late 2002, it would have treated us to all the breathless accounts of how Saddam Hussein totally has WMD that we need to start a war over. And will Facebook be blocking any of the news organizations whose polls told us that a Hillary Clinton victory was a lock?

In Portugal its unbelivable how the media is aligned with the US/ZATO crap.

They still think that the whole population listens to their shit.

The news about Syria are an absolute insult to the common intelligence...It pops all the time a bombed hospital by Russia or Syria...and 99% of the people dont understand shit about what is happening there...

The programming is all about soap operas, big brother kind of shit, and lots of football (soccer).

You can get also the 8 o´clock news promoting the last Hollywood piece of shit.

If there were a portuguese RT it would obliterate RTP, SIC and TVI...
