Facebook Under Fire After Its Response to Coronavirus Misinformation Makes Clear Company Could Do More to Combat Political Lies

Public Citizen is wrong on this one.

Censoring anyone or any group for their speech is unAmerican. Facebook should only be concerned with nudity and personal threats. Also- Facebook’s involvement with the deep state puts America in the same hypocritical context as it’s new, so-called aversaries in this old, fake, cold war.

Fact checking public servants is needed. False statements from government or the press can be devastating.
As you say, the rest of us have free speech rights, and most can discern honest comments from others.

It is not Facebook’s job to “fact”-check or propagandize anyone. PERIOD.
