We think what the Washington Post to say is that the same hysterical overreaction to there being “misinformation” on Facebook — remember CNN cornering an elderly woman in her driveway after she shared a post? — is now being used to pressure Spotify to do something about Joe Rogan, who’s apparently killing people with COVID misinformation. Facebook took a few half-hearted steps and teamed up with some professional “fact-checkers,” but what is Spotify going to do now that it’s in the media’s crosshairs?
New: Spotify is now facing the same reckoning on misinformation that has long focused on social media sites like Facebook, highlighting how the public debate about how misinfo spreads is evolving https://t.co/AysNGo9KMy

What public debate about how misinformation spreads? “Public,” meaning the clowns in the mainstream media and some censorship-happy leftists.
Misinformation is a meaningless word now. It merely means, 'something Democrats don't like.'

Information you disagree with is not “misinformation”. Best I can tell today’s Covid “misinformation” is a news story 6 mo from now.

Misinformation = Wrongthink

They can NEVER give an example. Rogan platforms the cancelled sometimes…that’s their problem.

What misinformation has sparked all this silliness?

The terms “misinformation” and “disinformation” are used by those who are afraid to say the word “lie.”
Is there a reason you don’t say “lie?”

How much was the reckoning in dollar amounts for your paper’s misinformation about Nick Sandmann exactly?
WaPo and most of the mainstream media need to sit this subject out for a while, at least until you clear out your own misinformation practices.

Who are you to say what is misinformation or not?

The Washington Post calling any other platform "disinformation" is hilarious.

Please explain your reasons for calling this misinformation

You're nuts! It's funny how opinions are labeled as 'misinformation' when you disagree with them, but labeled as 'opinions' or 'facts' (whatever fits your narrative) when you agree with them. Hypocrite. pic.twitter.com/VWuwRSorKw

There is no 'reckoning' on misinformation regarding Facebook. Facebook willingingly pushed the TrumpRussia hoax, they willingly censored stories about Hunter Biden's laptop, and his dealings in Ukraine and China. They have ZERO credibility.

You're forgetting that misinformation is whatever the liberal establishment says it is, and it can change at any given point in time.

Look around, sport. Not only is WaPo less trusted than Rogan. They’re less trusted than Nigerian princes.

MSNBC’s Joy Reid called critical race theory, which doesn’t exist, the right wing’s latest “bogeyman,” so we’re perfectly content to call the mainstream media’s hysteria over misinformation the left wing’s latest bogeyman. And speaking of Joy Reid, how is it that MSNBC is never, ever fact-checked or accused of spreading misinformation? CNN hall monitor Brian Stelter only watches Fox.
Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand thinks we need a dedicated regulatory agency to police Facebook for misinformation https://t.co/ng0YcjBdDu
