In reaction to the news that Facebook is partnering with the Associated Press, ABC News, and Snopes, among other apparent fact checkers to tag and weed out fake news on the popular social site, Media Research Center President Brent Bozell said Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg assured him that his express aim is to eliminate only patently false news stories from Facebook.
I have been in communication with Mark Zuckerberg at Facebook since he announced their new fake news initiative, said MRC President Bozell in a Dec. 16 statement. I expressed grave concern with this decision and the liberal fact-checking organizations Facebook has chosen.

I find this media “story” to be Fake News.
So like any story for example that questions climate change even tangentially kind of “fake”?
Sure didn’t take him long to move past “flag”
And there you have it. I wouldn't believe it if I didn't see it, but there it is. Snopes of all things. That tells you all you need to know.
Well, I feel so much better now.
So Zuckerberg actually didn’t give Bozell false assurances?
If that was the case mr Bozzel how come there are no conservatives on this taskforce
Not False News, just one of the many forms of Fake News. In this case Zuckerberger claiming to stomp out “Fake News”.
Zuckerberg doesn’t deserve this much power. He just happened to steal a good idea
Free speech will not be stifled and the market is clamoring for a new “go-to” social media site
Most likely off-shore and away from the reach of the oligarchy
Then the NY Times must be first on his list of banned websites.
I hope Brent is right. But of course these leftist “fact” checkers are going to brand anything with a conservative viewpoint as “patently false”.
Fake News: Patently Flase News Stories as well as stories that clearly violate the Politically Correct Terms and the Politically Correct Conditions of Facebook.
They are going after the Macedonians first. Legimate partisan news is okay for now.
Never trust a Secular Progressive Capo! They are nearly as bad as Muslims when it comes to lying.
“I will accept in good faith his commitment to address our concerns on this matter,”
Sorry, Zuckerberg squandered any “good faith” he might have had long ago.
Exactly. Young people left facebook when older people started using it. After a while of this insane move the only ones using facebook will be leftists.
Information is power.
