Hmm, on the other hand we really could have used this for a while IMHO. Lies and propaganda are nothing new in politics. It’s actually about time.
Edit: We really could have used this during the build up to the second Iraq War.
nothing new, indeed:
Facebook has also started a new series on their blog today that's pointing out some pieces of false news on the site: https://newsroom.fb.com/news/2018/10/inside-feed-hunt-false-news-october-2018/
Wow, well that’s interesting. I don’t have an FB account anymore.. are these facts shown inline with the offending posts in the main FB UI, or just displayed in this newsroom site?
Displayed on the newsroom site and demoted on the FB newsfeed algorithms.
Some of these are very nakedly aimed at Trump supporters. I don't know whether that is indicative of bias on AP's part or if they really are just the demographic which shares these stories the most.
Hypothetically, what if there was one political partly that used lies to their advantage? How could you separate that from bias if you didn’t use “facts” as a baseline?
The question I am asking specifically is whether or not your hypothesis is true that the Republicans use lies and Democrats just don't :P
Also, which ones specifically do you feel are biased?
It's not about specifics, it's about the overall picture.
