The Fake-News or Hoax

Mark Zuckerberg - Facebook

In a closed-door session with shareholders on Tuesday, Facebook executives wheeled out a set of new rules which, when implemented later this year, will ban their users from creating status updates and image posts related in any way to religion, while also vowing to disband groups and take down pages with religious goals or affiliations.

Facebook will introduce their new rules in three waves. The first will see religiously-themed pages being removed, as well as religious groups, private or otherwise, being disbanded. The second wave will prohibit the posting, sharing, and general distribution of religious images and memes; images asking Facebook users to pray, or encouraging them to believe in one or any religion, will be banned, with warning messages and even account suspensions for those who repeatedly attempt to violate the rule.

    Need to stop all fake news and hoaxes from Facebook.

      Really? I think we need to stop the theft of American minds via propaganda and biased reporting on the mainstream news. I think we need to reenact the domestic prohibition of propaganda by restoring the Smith-Mundt Act of 1948. I think we need to take responsibility for our own judgement (or lack thereof) and reject the nanny-state agenda. I think we need to list CNN, NBC, ABC, MSNBC, FOX, The New York Times, and a laundry list of other media outlets as fake news sites. I also think it's time for the American people to admit that the media tactics employed by networks and publications, and who have an obligation to provide a free press, are actually destabilization strategies straight out of the KGB communist playbook.

      And lastly, I think we Americans need to embrace our duty to freely speak out against and boycott all platforms that threaten any human being's sovereignty of thought, language, and voice. If the social media platforms would like to better filter trending topics for accuracy, legitimacy, and integrity, perhaps this endeavor would be more effectively pursued by enacting policy that requires alleged "fake news" peddlers to tag their sensationalism more rigidly. A rating system might also be beneficial, but banning "fake news" is a gross overreach.
