Letting Facebook Label what News is “Real”?, Are you kidding ME?

Letting Facebook Label what News is "Real"?, Are you kidding ME?

Mr. Scott: There’s an old old say­ing on earth: “Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice shame on me.“
Mr Checkov: I know this say­ing. It was invented in Russia

Star Trek Friday’s Child 1967

They say those who for­get the past are doomed to repeat it.

So when I saw this story at Drudge:

Face­book is going to start fact-​checking, label­ing, and bury­ing fake news and hoaxes in its News Feed, the com­pany said Thursday.

I remem­bered this:

Just after the Islamic Ter­ror attack on the gay night­club Pulse, Face­book, you know those guys who insist they are not cen­sor­ing con­ser­v­a­tives, decided to take strong action…against one of the most promi­nent oppo­nents and a one­time tar­get of Islamic ter­ror Pam Geller

and this

Face­book doesn’t acknowl­edge a bias prob­lem, the only see a “Trust” prob­lem, thus they will hold “dia­logues” in the hope of show­ing “progress” in the hopes that these visu­als will cause con­ser­v­a­tives to believe they are doing something.

Alas for face­book, not only is the bias prob­lem real but as reported at The Lid , the Israel Law Cen­ter (Shu­rat HaDin) was able to prove it by set­ting up a pair of “hate” sites one anti-​jewish & one anti Pales­tini­ans grad­u­ally ramp­ing up the rhetoric on both until they both called for the death of their tar­gets. Then they reported each site to facebook.

Jeff Tells us what hap­pened:

and this

and of course this:

Speak­ing at Facebook’s annual con­fer­ence F8 last week, Zucker­berg launched into an attack on Repub­li­can front-​runner Don­ald Trump’s poli­cies. It’s not sur­pris­ing that Zucker­berg, who has been a big fan of H-​1B visas that crit­ics say hold wages down for pro­gram­mers and soft­ware engi­neers hired by com­pa­nies such as Face­book, doesn’t think much of Trump’s plan to limit immi­gra­tion. But so what? Lots of peo­ple are for open bor­ders, even peo­ple who, unlike Zucker­berg, don’t stand to make bil­lions off of them.

Some­what more trou­bling was that a bunch of Face­book employ­ees asked Zucker­berg whether there was any­thing they could do to stop a Trump pres­i­dency: “What respon­si­bil­ity does Face­book have to help pre­vent Pres­i­dent Trump in 2017?”

And then I think ARE YOU KID­DING ME?

After all of these recent exam­ples of Face­book bias could any sane con­ser­v­a­tive seri­ously con­sider trust­ing face­book to not use “fact check­ing” as a weapon to cen­sor con­ser­v­a­tives while pro­mot­ing a lib­eral agenda?

If you do then then shame on you, Cue Scotty:

So when I saw this story at Drudge:

Facebook is going to start fact-checking, labeling, and burying fake news and hoaxes in its News Feed, the company said Thursday.

I remembered this:

Just after the Islamic Terror attack on the gay nightclub Pulse, Facebook, you know those guys who insist they are not censoring conservatives, decided to take strong action…against one of the most prominent opponents and a onetime target of Islamic terror Pam Geller

and this

Facebook doesn’t acknowledge a bias problem, the only see a “Trust” problem, thus they will hold “dialogues” in the hope of showing “progress” in the hopes that these visuals will cause conservatives to believe they are doing something.

Alas for facebook, not only is the bias problem real but as reported at The Lid , the Israel Law Center (Shurat HaDin) was able to prove it by setting up a pair of “hate” sites one anti-jewish & one anti Palestinians gradually ramping up the rhetoric on both until they both called for the death of their targets. Then they reported each site to facebook.

and of course this:

Speaking at Facebook’s annual conference F8 last week, Zuckerberg launched into an attack on Republican front-runner Donald Trump’s policies. It’s not surprising that Zuckerberg, who has been a big fan of H-1B visas that critics say hold wages down for programmers and software engineers hired by companies such as Facebook, doesn’t think much of Trump’s plan to limit immigration. But so what? Lots of people are for open borders, even people who, unlike Zuckerberg, don’t stand to make billions off of them.

Somewhat more troubling was that a bunch of Facebook employees asked Zuckerberg whether there was anything they could do to stop a Trump presidency: “What responsibility does Facebook have to help prevent President Trump in 2017?”

And then I think ARE YOU KIDDING ME?

After all of these recent examples of Facebook bias could any sane conservative seriously consider trusting facebook to not use “fact checking” as a weapon to censor conservatives while promoting a liberal agenda?

If you do then then shame on you, Cue Scotty:
