Re: Facebook now fact-checking satire/jokes

...flipping back and forth between MSNBC, Fox, and CNN. At the top of an hour. In the middle of a quarter hour. At the bottom of an hour. At the middle of another quarter hour. And also recording and playing back half hours head to head to head. Do you do this often? If so, it might explain why you...

Re: Facebook now fact-checking satire/jokes

Yep. Fox ad nauseum pushing the lie that Dems and Biden are responsible for some Dr. Seuss books being “canceled” Do you have evidence that Fox is doing this? RT didn't. Am I supposed to just take you at your word that FNC is, in fact, reporting specifically that Biden is responsible for the Seuss ...

Re: Facebook now fact-checking satire/jokes

Ok, so Fox News is explicitly reporting, as news, that Joe Biden is the person responsible for Dr Seuss' publisher to stop publishing the 6 books in question?

FOX is on its third day of running that same talking point AS NEWS.
Fox News is explicitly saying that Joe Biden killed Dr. Seuss?

I think your claim is worthy of a fact-check because I suspect they have made no such claim, let alone ran it as "news."

Re: Facebook now fact-checking satire/jokes

And btw - could you imagine MW creating a team of people to fact-check every single post in every single forum on this site? Many of us would probably leave if that happened. My problem with fact-checking in general on a platform like facebook is the creation of fact-checkers presumes that people ar...

Re: Facebook now fact-checking satire/jokes

2.8 billion people use facebook, so I do find it relevant to talk about.

And RT - your party was stuck focused on a BS "Russia collusion" narrative for YEARS, and you're bent out of shape about Dr. Seuss being a story for barely a week?

Facebook now fact-checking satire/jokes

You can't make this stuff up. One of my facebook friends had shared this, and automatically attached to it were a fact-check and a fact-check link. Setting aside whether the joke here is funny or not, facebook has gotten into the business of fact-checking something that is clearly satire? Some peopl...

Re: WBMI 1055 Back on the Air

So were there 2 phases to their current music era or just 1? I seem to remember their format being fairly consistent throughout their entire time that I listened to them play current hits (roughly 1998 through 2001) - I remember specifically that they'd do a "30 minute music marathon" every hour, st...

Re: Dr. Seuss books are racist

Decision was made last year? I'm not buying it. Maybe they talked about it last year, but I would bet the decision was made this week.

Re: WBMI 1055 Back on the Air

I miss the WUPS of the late 90s-early 2000s. At the time they were criticized repeatedly on these forums for being a "trainwreck" but I thoroughly enjoyed their deep playlist of everything from 80s to Hot AC to adult CHR to even some alternative-leaning stuff. They were very quick to add new stuff t...

Re: Andrew Cuomo to aide: "Let's play strip poker"

He might be stubborn enough to make it through March.

Interestingly, it is barely worse than a coin flip on Predictit that he actually does survive the entire year. I'm tempted to put the max $850 down on that one. Would pay about $750 in profit.

Re: Andrew Cuomo to aide: "Let's play strip poker"

Ok, I'm ready to officially predict it. He won't finish out 2021 as New York's governor.
