“People want to see accurate information on Facebook and so do we. That is why we are doing everything we can to tackle the problem of false news,” said Simon Milner, Facebook’s director of policy for the UK. “To help people spot false news, we are showing tips to everyone . . . on how to identify if something they see is false.”

    Hm-m-m I would like an impartial review of what they are deleting. I don’t think any item online reflected the US elections but believe that is what is being said by the opposition to make our President Trump’s election to appear to be illegit.

    The US election’s problem was that the Democrats had such a corrupt person in Hillary Clinton as their candidate. Had nothing to do with fake news etc. It had to do with Hillary’s own legacy. She earned it all by her own illegals doings.
