A spokesman for Facebook said Wednesday the social media platform would be reducing distribution of the Post's story and noted that the report is eligible to be fact-checked by Facebook's third-party partners.
"While I will intentionally not link to the New York Post, I want be clear that this story is eligible to be fact checked by Facebook's third-party fact checking partners," Facebook's Andy Stone tweeted Wednesday. "In the meantime, we are reducing its distribution on our platform."
"This is part of our standard process to reduce the spread of misinformation," he added in a follow-up tweet. "We temporarily reduce distribution pending fact-checker review."
Got that little boys and girls? Mommy facebook has to fact check the story first. If it's OK for you to see, then she'll think about whether you get to see it. Now do your homework.
