A lot of people have been blinded by the idea of a ‘fact checker‘. This is something that made should raise a red flag instead of thinking that it’s a helpful tool. People literally have no idea of what is really going on.
The idea of the “Fact-checking” is intended to remind the about The Patriot Act, or Black Lives Matter in that the name has little to do with the purported aims of each entity.
The truth is that the Patriot Act does not have any connections with patriotism just the same as the Black Lives Matter that also has anything to do with the black lives but only for Communism. This means that fact-checking is only spreading lies and not FACTS!
Reports show that Facebook admitted that their “Fact-Checking” only came from the opinions of the people who work for Facebook itself.
Part of this is no doubt true, and ‘fact checking’ is simply a statist propaganda tool, the other part of this is that Facebook likely does not want to be held liable for comments made on its platform…
Let’s take a look at the details:
So-called ‘#FactCheck‘ labels placed on #Facebook posts are opinion, lawyers for the #BigTech platform’s parent company said in a recent court filing.#Meta says its fact-checkers are independent from Facebook and that it is protected by #Section230. https://t.co/YBM6VuHmXT

So Facebook’s attorneys just came out and admitted that all of its “Fact Checking” labels? Yeah, those are actually just “opinions”, and are absolutely irrelevant in determining if a post is true or not. There you have it, “fact checking” is nothing more than “opinion checking.”

The Hollywood Reporter wrote an article last September which highlighted John Stossel’s lawsuit against Facebook:
According to Stossel’s complaint (read here), he published on Facebook a video titled “Government Fueled Fires,” where he took on “sensational media reporting about a so-called ‘climate apocalypse,’ and explored a scientific hypothesis … that while climate change undoubtedly contributes to forest fires, it was not the primary cause of the 2020 California fires.”
After posting the video, he says Facebook placed a label near his video that stated, “Missing Context. Independent fact-checkers say this information could mislead people.”
Well it’s no surprise to me as I’m sure will be the case for many of you, which is fact checkers are bullshit.

Facebook Argues in Court Filing That Their Fact Checkers’ Views are “Protected Opinions” https://t.co/QTcGDf1zar

WND also reported during the court proceedings of Stossel v Facebook, the following information was revealed:
“The labels themselves are neither false nor defamatory; to the contrary, they constitute protected opinion,” claimed the company.
Watts pointed out opinions are not subject to defamation claims, while false assertions of fact can be.
He explained, “So, in a court of law, in a legal filing, Facebook admits that its ‘fact checks’ are not really ‘fact’ checks at all, but merely ‘opinion assertions.’
