Another fake Pelosi video goes viral on Facebook (and of course they don't take it down)

Facebook's fact-checkers on Sunday labeled as "partly false" a video that it said was manipulated to make it appear as if House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was drunk or drugged. The video had been circulating on Facebook since Thursday and by Sunday night had been viewed more than 2 million times.

A similarly false video of Pelosi went viral on Facebook in May 2019. At the time, Pelosi blasted Facebook for not removing the video. Facebook had instead applied a fact-check label to it.
----
Stone told CNN, "Following an incident over a year ago with a previous video of Speaker Pelosi, we took a number of key steps, making it very clear to people on Facebook when a third-party fact-checker determines content to be false and updating our policy to make explicit the kind of manipulated media we will remove. And, as always, when a video is determined false, its distribution is dramatically reduced and people who see it, try to share it, or have already shared it, see warnings alerting them that it's false."

Tik Tok took it down. You Tube took it down. 2 million views on FB and counting and flagged or not they are demonstrating once again that they are forever ok with actual fake news as long as it makes them money. Synthetic media is only going to get more insidious as time goes on and any company who is ok with that cause profit above all else is a danger to freedom and democracy. One of the ironies of course is that Chinese owned Tik Tok - who according to Trump is risk to national security - took it down, while American owned FB did not...What does that tell you? Heh.

1. "Partly false." Nancy sounded stoned in it when she was not.

If I had a chance to keep Zuckerberg from dropping partly dead I wouldn't. I'd be responsible for whatever he did after.

3. But if people started making fake videos of Mark Fuckerberg would they take it down?

Maybe people on tiktok need to see how talented they are.

4. The real problem is that it is seen so many times

prior to the take down. Even after removed those who want to believe it will use it as validation of there views. The whole situation becomes self fulfilling. You believe that the Speaker is an evil person off there rocker, here's your evidence. You believe the Speaker is a sane good person, you know it's manipulated. You will not change any persons opinion. For the rare who have no opinion, you got a 50/50 chance on either reaction.
