Meanwhile, everyone has seen or heard the widespread video of House The spokeswoman Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) Seems to be drunk. YouTube stopped uploading the video, which was a breeze for most people.
Facebook has to follow suit, according to the Washington Post. After the video was rated as "wrong," the standard oil of that generation said the video would remain on the platform.
With more than 2.5 million views for the video by Friday, Monika Bickert, vice president of product policy and counter-terrorism, said the company had "dramatically" reduced the distribution of the video without removing it.
"We think it's important that people make their own informed decision about what to believe," she said during an interview with Anderson Cooper of CNN. "Our job is to make sure we provide them with accurate information," she added.
Cooper, whose black-framed glasses caused a slight disgust, had none.
"You make money by being in the news business," he said. "If you can not do it well, should not you just get off the news business?"
We're not in the news business, we're in social media, "Bickert replied.
" The reason you share news is that you make money from it, "Cooper replied if you are in the news business that you are, you have to do it right. And these are false information that you spread. "
Bickert told Cooper that the video is now tagged with fact checker icons, though icons are often lost in shuffle or misunderstood as related content or advertisements that users easily overlook. This is something you would think would be known to the most powerful media company in the world.
Facebook's Bandaid had done little on Saturday morning. According to screenshots from the post office, a user wondered why she was not arrested for drunkenness as federal employee, and an expanded link for the video with more than 48,000 shares had no warnings of fact checkers.
