Censorship continues apace

USA Today reports that Facebook will extend its censorship to anti-vaccine news. USA Today states:

‘Facebook is considering making anti-vaccination content on its site less visible amid a measles outbreak that has reignited a conversation about preventative shots.

The social media giant that’s been criticized for spreading fake news told USA TODAY it’s “taken steps to reduce the distribution of health-related misinformation on Facebook, but we know we have more to do.”

Facebook has been fighting misinformation on its platform since the 2016 presidential election after fake accounts and news stories aimed at sowing discord among users were discovered.’
