Conservative News Added To BLACKLIST, Targets Advertisers
The Poynter institute published a list of “unreliable news” which is essentially a fake news website. Right away we can see it makes no sense as on it are satirical websites and even video hosting platforms. But the list includes right wing sites rated credible and states it wants advertisers to be aware if they fund misinformation. Not only that but Poynter essentially runs Facebook’s fact checking. If these sites are listed as fake news they could get removed from Facebook outright.
It turns out that the author of the list works for or with the Southern Poverty Law Center, a far left social justice org that has smeared conservatives and centrists in the past.
