Who Will Fact Check the Fact Checkers?

The fake issue of fake news get more ironic by the day. Facebook recently announced that they were going to censor fake news by employing a cadre of left wing fact checkers.

In order for fake news censoring to achieve the near impossible task of gaining and retaining credibility, the fact checkers must be viewed as impartial and have an impeccable record of objective factually correct reporting. Even with...

TRUMPLIGULA! will determine what is fact and what is fiction.

It's kind of like "Who is an extremist?"

To some, anything less than welcoming endless waves of Wahabis and kowtowing to every demand made by Depressed Transgendered Lesbians with Pink Hair is extremist.

Irony indeed, since your second sentence is obviously fake news. (left wing fact checkers ? Just becasue most fake news was pro Trump ofr anti Clinton, that doesn't make fact checkers left wing)

I like what facebook and google are doing about fake news.

I don't know whether it would stop people like TPB from believing a significant amount of the absurd crap he believes, becasue he's the kind of idiot that believes that the NYT and WAPO are propaganda organs, and only publications far less respected than the national enquirer can be trusted, with their reports of Soros funded protests etc., paid protesters and so on.

But for most of us, at least being alerted right away that a news source is not legit, or having something fact checked, is valuable information, and will prevent at least some of the less moronic idiots from sharing stuff online that makes them look stupid.

In this election in a few cases Trump himself or deputies (campaign managers) shared fake news in tweets. That was something we haven't seen before.

Liberal Fact Checker? Isn't that an oxymoron? Or is it an Oxyimbecile?

It seems its main stream media most concerned about "fake news" even though they have been involved in disseminating plenty of it themselves. Truth is neither left wing or right wing BUT because the left lost they are trying to blame "fake news and Russia" as the culprits rather than trying to putting up a dishonest candidate who stole the nomination from Sanders and having the media act as campaign propaganda

Remember, it's illegal for you to look at Wikileaks but not us (CNN).

IE: "We're the gatekeepers, goddamn it. Don't look at the raw material! We need to interpret it for you!"

TRUMPLIGULA

Would probably do more to curb h1-b than Clinton or any establishment republican. Thought that mattered to you, you racist

Funny how you lump Chinese and Indians together. Indians aren't the ones buying homes in California with ill gotten cash. Never heard you acknowledge that you were talking out of ass on that one

Why are you back??

EVERYTHING, and I do mean EVERYTHING you predicted would happen failed to occur. Your batting average is .000

Shouldn't you do an analysis of what went wrong with your predictions before throwing out a brand new batch? That's what I do. I wrote an entire essay of why I was wrong about the election results.

My candidate is plugged into a Fact Checker.
This will keep that motherfucker . . . from checking our shit.
Not only does this stop a check on your facts, -
- but it can also . . .
- Fact check? - Fact check who's fact checking you.
What if they've got a Fact Checker?
That's why l got this Fact Checker Checker.
When they try to check your facts, this will bust the Fact Checker -
- that's checking your . . .
- Fact. - That's my word.
- We'll use my cell phone. - Just patch that shit into here.
Plug and play, motherfucker.
