Default 'They don't care': Facebook fact-checking in disarray as journalists push to cut ties

https://www.theguardian.com/technolo...sh-to-cut-ties

Quote:
Journalists working as fact-checkers for Facebook have pushed to end a controversial media partnership with the social network, saying the company has ignored their concerns and failed to use their expertise to combat misinformation.
Interesting article with some lengthy quotes from former snopes.com staffers as well as snopes himself.

I read this this morning and was surprised to see Kim quoted, but I was at work so I couldn't post anything!
