Facebook fact checkers love to throw their cover over your post to inform the public that you’re spreading lies. The problem is, we’ve already proven that they’re blatantly false.
One of our latest articles covering a new report from Dr. Li-Meng Yan was apparently fact checked before it even existed.
If you look at the dates, the three articles referenced by the so-called fact checkers are dated January, February, and April of 2020. The issue with this, is that we were reporting on a scientific study published on October 8, 2020.
How did they manage to disprove a scientific study before it even existed? The obvious answer is that they didn’t. Each of these articles are about completely separate claims that surfaced at the start of the pandemic, and each article predates even the first report made by Dr. Yan.
When trying to dispute this being added to the article, Facebook said that they are not properly equipped to monitor the COVID19 situation.
In addition to labeling unpopular information as false, Facebook has been ramping up their shadow ban policy as well. This is no surprise as they have publicly said they will dictate what election information is allowed to circulate on their platform.
And not just a little. One page reached out to let us know they actually saw a staggering decrease of 99% viewership this last week – a direct result of Facebook.
It is clear that we cannot rely solely on social media. We must realize that it is a tool, but that tool is working against us as much if not more than it is working for us. It is time to bookmark sites like newsanalytics.us and rely on browser URL’s. You never know what social media is deciding not to tell you simply because you’ve been shadow banned or a fact checker said your information was false.
