Anyone who has seen or heard about the widespread video made by the speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) Seems to be intoxicated. YouTube dropped the video upload – a call that seemed rather reckless.
Facebook has not yet followed suit, according to the Washington Post. Recognizing the video as "fake", Standard Oil said the video will remain on the platform.
With over 2.5 million views on Friday's video, Vice President for Product Policy and Counter Terrorism Monica Bikert said the company "dramatically" reduced the distribution of the video without removing it.
"We think it's important for people to make their own informed choices about what to believe," she said during an interview with Anderson Cooper of CNN. "Our task is to make sure we give them accurate information," she added.
Cooper, whose dark-colored glasses accentuated the slight aversion, did not have it. in the news business, "he said. "If you can not do it well, do not you just have to leave the news business?" We are not in the news business.
We are not in the news business. We're in the social media business, "Bickert said.
"The reason to share news is because you make money from it." Cooper replied. "But if you're in the news business and you are, then you have to do it right. And this is false information that you distribute. "
Bitter told Cooper that the video is already tagged with fact-checking icons under the mail, though icons are often lost in shuffle or misinterpreted as related content or ads that consumers easily ignore is something you would think the most powerful media device in the world will understand.
On Saturday morning, the Facebook gang made some. According to the screenshots of the Post, a user wondered, "Why is she not arrested that she is drunk while doing a federal business as a federal employee?" And the expanded video link, which has more than 48,000 shares, does not show warnings to check the facts.
