‘America’s Frontline Doctors’: Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube scrub platforms of viral video making false coronavirus claims — Each of which is faceless, except for its extremely rich owners

False information but they do not specify “according to studies.”

As this stands, it’s on Facebook’s authority. If Facebook is so authoritative, why can’t it explain itself?

“We’ve removed this video for sharing false information about cures and treatments for COVID-19,” a Facebook spokesperson told CNN, adding that the platform is “showing messages in News Feed to people who have reacted to, commented on or shared harmful COVID-19-related misinformation that we have removed, connecting them to myths debunked by the WHO.”

They should quote WHO. No possible argument? No opposite opinions allowed? Facebook man say so. But he’s faceless.

And I can say this without a smidgen of expertise but as a reader of many publications with some understanding of how newspapers should and usually do report, unless it takes the mommy-and-daddy role of him or her knows best.
