Facebook Admits to Shadowbanning News It Considers ‘Fake’

Facebook has admitted to deliberately limiting posts that share links to news stories the site considers “fake,” reducing their reach by up to 80 percent.

Facebook’s official Twitter account revealed the previously-undisclosed “shadowbanning” policy in response to an article by CNN’s Oliver Darcy, which attacks the social media Masters of the Universe for not banning the page of alternative news site InfoWars.

Facebook simultaneously touted its commitment to “free speech” while stating that it limits the visibility on posts it doesn’t like by up to 80 percent.
