Stand by, Trump is signing an executive order to keep Twitter from fact checking his Tweets.  OR, it is yet another empty threat. We are still waiting for that incriminating evidence on China he said he was going to release "very soon". Heck, we are still waiting for him to tell us Obama is not a citizen and how long ago did he make those statements?  What a moron.

RW Whines and everyone laughs at them:   

 

This is where all of the reporting far falls down.

 

Most clearly, the government simply cannot force platforms to moderate in a certain way. That would violate the 1st Amendment. So even if a panel is formed, it couldn't actually do anything to change things, beyond just being an annoying pest. But, it seems like the media should be making this clear. Any panel cannot force internet companies to treat political viewpoints in some different manner. That's a blatant 1st Amendment problem.

 

The whiner's here are either stupid or don't know much about the stuff by which they claim to be "experts'.

Twitter adds fact-check labels to Trump tweets on voting fraud

This does not bode well for the man who has already told 18,000 lies in while in office. Now even Twitter is starting to point people to accurate sources instead of letting Trump continue to lie without fact checking. Heck, even Fox is starting to tell the truth when Trump lies.  Gonna be a long fall for the moron. 

 

Twitter for the first time added fact-check labels to a pair of tweets by President Donald Trump that boosted unsubstantiated claims about voting fraud on Tuesday, a move that comes as the social media network faces intense scrutiny of its handling of the president’s feed.

Twitter's label does not directly declare the tweets false, but points anyone reading them to news reports that contradict the president's assertions.
