Facebook has designated Koch-funded climate-deniers as fact checkers.
Facebook has a history of blocking progressives.
Tell Facebook to end its bogus "fact-checking" censorship.
Facebook has partnered with CheckYourFact.com which is part of The Daily Caller, a promoter of climate denial that was co-founded by Fox News host Tucker Carlson and is funded by oil barons Charles and David Koch among other right-wing backers.
This does not appear to be a freak accident. Facebook named the climate-denying Weekly Standard a "fact-checking" partner in 2017, and in 2018 employed a right-wing think tank to root out "liberal bias."
Facebook purged pages based on the "PropOrNot" smear list published by the Washington Post, as reported by the website ZeroHedge, among others, and then blocked articles from ZeroHedge.
Click here to sign a petition to Facebook demanding that it drop its role as arbitrary fact-checker and guardian of good opinion -- and instead confine itself to maintaining an open and safe platform free from violence and threats of violence.
