Facebook Approaches Misinformation in the Most Facebook Way Possible

Facebook, in a series of tweets (funny how that works), defends their decision to let blatant misinformation remain on their website:

Facebook is just gutless.

  • They act so high and mighty as if they care, when really they're just protecting their targeted ads business.
  • They think they're like a public space, when really they're more like a shopping center letting some lunatic with a megaphone disturb shoppers and feed lies to their children. It’s entirely within the rights of Facebook, a private company, to give these guys the boot.
  • Whoever gets to run this account gets to sleep at night while I just got a measly 3 hours going into a 13-hour day.
