FUREY: A closer look at Facebook’s new COVID-19 misinformation rules

Facebook recently announced new COVID-19 misinformation community standards – a list of criteria for posts that the tech giant will remove.

Some of the posts Facebook is targeting include those claiming COVID-19 is no more dangerous than the flu and posts claiming that deaths are much lower than official figures.

Anthony Furey discusses in his latest video.

We’re asking readers, like you, to make a contribution in support of True North’s fact-based, independent journalism.

Unlike the mainstream media, True North isn’t getting a government bailout. Instead, we depend on the generosity of Canadians like you.

How can a media outlet be trusted to remain neutral and fair if they’re beneficiaries of a government handout? We don’t think they can.

This is why independent media in Canada is more important than ever. If you’re able, please make a tax-deductible donation to True North today. Thank you so much.
