The reach of stories tagged fake news by Facebook will be decreased by algorithms and they will not be eligible for paid promotion

Do you need a newspaper nanny to help protect you from “fake news” malaise? Well you’re getting one anyway.

And who is this nanny? None other than your mainstream media.

Isn’t that lovely? Your regime media gets to protect you from stories your regime media doesn’t like.

Thanks to one Mark Zuckerberg, a known pro-government liberal weenie.

Zuckerberg is hiring new staff, designing new software and teaming up with ABC News, Associated Press, Snopes, Factcheck.org and Politifact to police our news and our Facebook news feeds.

After all we, the dumb plebeans, need all the protection from information that may lead us to vote the wrong way that our feeble minds can get:

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

The decision comes after Facebook received heated criticism for its role in spreading a deluge of political misinformation during the US presidential election, like one story that falsely said the Pope had endorsed Donald Trump.

Starting as a test with a small percentage of its users in the US, Facebook will make it easier to report news stories that are fake or misleading. Once third-party fact-checkers have confirmed that the story is fake, it will be labeled as such and demoted in the News Feed.
