In the time leading up to the Jan. 6 Capitol “insurrection,” engineers and other experts in Facebook’s Elections Operations Center were throwing tool after tool at supposed false claims to squash “misinformation.”

 POLITICO reports:

Data captured the following morning, Jan. 7, found that Facebook’s artificial intelligence tools had struggled to address a large portion of the content related to the storming of the Capitol.

….

Facebook took down the original Stop the Steal group in November, but it did not ban content using that phrase until after the Jan. 6 riot. The company said it has since been expanding its work to address threats from groups of authentic accounts, but that one big challenge is distinguishing between users coordinating harm on the platform from people organizing for social change.

Both the inability to firm up policies for borderline content and the lack of plans around coordinated but authentic misinformation campaigns reflect Facebook’s reluctance to work through issues until they are already major problems, according to employees and internal documents.

According to the report, “Some Facebook staffers argue that what is, in fact, a reactive approach from the company sets Facebook up for failure during high-stakes moments like the events of Jan. 6.”

Now, questions still are swirling regarding Zuckerberg’s Facebook and its contribution to fueling the riot at the Capitol on January 6.

He’s the one that threw 500 million to throw the election. Why isn’t he being investigated?

The DOJ is in bed with the corruption this includes the FBI, CIA along with the IRS? They have spent millions on this January 6 so called insurrection? But a blindman can see the out right failure to preform their sworn duties. Biden has been the centerpiece for Bribery and corruption along with his family during his time as Vice President under the Obama administration. Then there’s the Bengali debacle I will not forget Hillary Clinton emails theses are just a few things that if Trump did he would have been tarred an feathered? Does anyone in their right mind think that Mark Zuckerberg wasn’t involved after giving millions to the Democratic Party are as foolish to believe that Biden really won the election? The democratic justice system doesn’t want to kill there cash cows

Why aren’t sooooooooooooo many of the Dems being investigated? Because the media either lies, or doesn’t cover/acknowledge the issues.

What I am hearing is that Facebook was too freedom of speech . Makes you wonder just who is pushing this agenda . Reminds me of the ADL complaining that Twitter was being too lenient on antisemitism . Jack boot thug censor Twitter too lenient to those who don’t comply with it’s politics. We need the Committee on Unamerican Activities to be back up and running with real Americans so badly.

Many of Us are still wondering just how many undercover FBI were on scene and what were their actions; how many BLM and/ or ANTIFA were their as wolves in sheep’s clothing–wearing Trump hats & such?

“One big challenge is distinguishing between users coordinating harm on the (a) platform from people organizing for social change.” This is an admission that “social change” platforms coordinate harm. Color coding (literally/philosophically) self-defense.

Looks like Zuckerberg is the insurrectionist and probably in sync with Pelosi to ruin America!

There was no riot and I am tired of hearing these lies. Talk about BLM riots… now those were riots with real damage and violence including deaths. You don’t talk b=about those. Why? But then you call a little protest and there was a killing by coward cop that was toitally unjustified. If there had been a riot you idiots would have known because there would have been many more bad things happen other than the cops letting people in the capital. Whom ever wrote this is an idiot and a liar and wants to keep this bad guys are the people that actually did have a grievance and were protesting that grievance and actually in a pretty civil way. People like this author must not think that tampering, on a big scale, with votes for the president isn’t that big of a deal…again what a waste of air this idiot is…
