Facebook Admits Fact Checks are Third Party Opinion

Objectivity 2.8 | Credibility 4.0 | Relevance 4.8

The “fact checks” that it uses to police what Americans read and watch are third-party opinions Facebook says are protected under the First Amendment. The checkers are not the unbiased arbiters of truth; they are groups Facebook uses to absolve itself of responsibility when people sue them for censorship.
