It looks as if Facebook has chosen the AP and Snopes.com to be its “fact checkers” in determining what qualifies as fake news.

That is just a brilliant idea. The AP and Snopes are such unimpeachable sources.

Unfortunately, individual responsibility is not a concept that companies like Facebook are familiar with.

It’s not a way to slow down the sharing of fake news; it’s a way to eliminate the promulgation of stories that Facebook doesn’t like.
