Seems the Facebook Police have a stiff-one for the good Internet doctor. They are literally nitpicking their members pages and groups with left-leaning fact checkers. So Mark Zuckerberg agreed that Twitter was wrong nitpicking president Trump’s tweets, yet he is doing the same thing. Facebook is opening themselves up for lawsuits since their ‘liability shield’ was also yanked by Donald Trump!
On my FidoSysop Facebook page I share mostly screenshots of tweets taken with my iPhone. Share articles that seem factual. I also share these blog posts to my page. But recently I’m being attacked by the Facebook fact-check police. Their really nitpicking my shared links and in essence issuing digital arrest warrants for me. This narrated screen video outlines my thoughts!🙄
Mark Zuckerberg is opening Facebook up to serious liability issues. Don’t get me wrong, I love Facebook and it’s great to stay in touch with family and friends since it’s privacy issues were addressed. But now Zuck’s wanting to be the Prosecutor, Judge, Jury, and Executioner! He’s putting his nutz in a sling, and attorneys must be chomping at the bit to file class-action lawsuits! 🤑
Earlier President Donald Trump signed an executive order stripping biased social media platforms ‘liability shield’ that protected them from being sued for content posted to their social media platforms. And it’s about time – America is fed up with political bias censorship!
Online platforms are engaging in selective censorship that is harming our national discourse. Tens of thousands of Americans have reported, online platforms “flagging” content as inappropriate, even though it does not violate any stated terms of service; making unannounced and unexplained changes to company policies that have the effect of disfavoring certain viewpoints; and deleting content and entire accounts with no warning, no rationale, and no recourse.
From President Trump: Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube wield immense, if not unprecedented, power to shape the interpretation of public events; to censor, delete, or disappear information; and to control what people see or do not see. As President, I have made clear my commitment to free and open debate on the internet. Such debate is just as important online as it is in our universities, our town halls, and our homes. It is essential to sustaining our democracy.
Last summer my Facebook page was shadowbanned. On top of that every url on docsplace.org and it’s sub-domains was stripped from Bing and Google search. It was rumored someone had flagged this domain as containing dangerous content. It took about a month but it all eventually came back. Then there was the comment they labeled as Hate Speech because I called Barack Obama a Monkey, adding he belonged in a Gitmo Cage. The Facebook Police didn’t like that either!
