Video of the Day: Mark Dice shreds Facebook’s ‘Fact Check’ tool

Media analyst Mark Dice shredded Facebook for it’s so-called “fact check” mechanism, which ended up “fact-checking” a satire post by the Christian parody site Babylon Bee.

According to PJ Media:

Christian satire site The Babylon Bee received a terse warning from Facebook this week after the “independent fact-checkers” at Snopes reported that one of the site’s humor articles was “false.”

Adam Ford, who runs The Babylon Bee, was warned by Facebook that a recent satire article about CNN “contains information disputed by (Snopes.com) an independent fact checker.” Repeat offenders, Ford was told, “will see their distribution reduced and their ability to monetize and advertized [sic] removed.”

The social media giant later apologized, PJ Media said:

“There’s a difference between false news and satire,” Lauren Svensson from Facebook Communications wrote in an email to PJM. “This was a mistake and should not have been rated false in our system. It’s since been corrected and won’t count against the domain in any way.”
