As Twitchy told you, Facebook is reportedly shutting down a number of American-run pages and accounts in an effort to fight the spread of “false and misleading content in a coordinated fashion.”
Facebook will be taking down 559 pages and 251 accounts run by Americans, many of which amplified false and misleading content in a coordinated fashion ahead of the midterms: https://t.co/ysFWHZOpCh

For some reason, CNN’s Brian Stelter thought this was something he should weigh in on:
Americans spreading misinformation on purpose — a problem we all see — but a very hard thing to tackle https://t.co/XtiAxnWlQM

He thought wrong.
Isn't that the pot calling the kettle black? #pennywise

Wethinks the gentlemen doth project too much.
As long as I tweet a correction that gets 1/1000th the attention, that makes it ok right?
Same as journalists?
That just shows my rigor for the truth.

Brian Stelter and his buddies have made careers out of “spreading misinformation on purpose.” It’s “a problem we all see” because the media do it all the effing time.
Yeah, I know. I watch cable news, too. https://t.co/JGKrjLtafB

.@kasie went on air with an anonymous letter from Colorado accusing Kavanaugh of sexual assualt. Americans have nothing on the Press after the Kavanaugh mess. Clean your house. https://t.co/EXD6XdHeOf

Damn! Looks like @CNN is going to need some new programming ASAP!
