Facebook Joins The Fight Against Fake News

Yesterday a Facebook spokesperson announced that Facebook would begin to flag non accredited news stories as fake on their news-feed. Facebook will work with five legitimate fact-checking organizations: ABC News, AP, FactCheck.org, Politifact, and Snopes to help them deem just what’s fake and what’s not.

“We believe providing more context can help people decide for themselves what to trust and what to share. We’ve started a program to work with third-party fact checking organizations that are signatories of Poynter’s International Fact Checking Code of Principles. We’ll use the reports from our community, along with other signals, to send stories to these organizations. If the fact checking organizations identify a story as fake, it will get flagged as disputed and there will be a link to the corresponding article explaining why. Stories that have been disputed may also appear lower in News Feed.

It will still be possible to share these stories, but you will see a warning [flag] that the story has been disputed as you share.

It’s important to us that the stories you see on Facebook are authentic and meaningful. We’re excited about this progress, but we know there’s more to be done. We’re going to keep working on this problem for as long as it takes to get it right.”

The Accredited Times commends Facebook for their courageous effort to fight back against Russian propaganda and fake news – by copying us.

Our hugely successful fake news, Russian propaganda, and hate speech flagging system has been up and running in our comments section for more than a week now – it is the worlds first fake news flagging system to be implemented by an accredited media company. We have happily shared, with Facebook, our technical know-how in this innovative new strategy to fight back against Russian propagandists – and trust it will help to make their system a success also.

Having graciously agreed to Facebook copying our flagging system, we call on them to return the favor and prioritize the Accredited Times #NukeRussiaNow campaign – as it is also a vital tool in the fight against Russian propagandists.

I fully endorse Accredited News comments flagging system, which recently identified my comment as Russian propaganda, rather than hate speech. Excuse my French, but that’s one f***ing advanced algorithm!

It’s not an algorithm – our accredited editors use their best judgement to deem which comments are hate speech, Russian propaganda or fake news. They have the final say on these matters.

LIAR! As far as I know, most Russians are black, and they are oppressed by a racist, white minority. See typical Russian Army soldier picture below.

It’s not really surprising. Everybody knows about the Accredited Times now. It’s rapidly exploding in readership, fame, and literary output. There seem to be about 2 new articles every day. I frankly think that the editorial writers and journalists in the other accredited media know that their writing is at least a little inferior to what they read here. They are playing catch-up. You can count on it. The famous names in the accredited media are snooping around here every day for innovative ideas.

This is the least they can do. I appreciate that Facebook is following our lead, but they need to give us credit for designing this flagging system!

I am so glad they are finally cracking down on Alex Jones. He is nothing but a Zionist Shill.

We all need to identify and fight this scourge of fake news. Here is a horrible example of fake news with a fake journalist criticizing the moderate Syrian democrat loving rebels. Don’t believe this fake news.
