'They don't care': Facebook factchecking in disarray as journalists push to cut ties • The Guardian
Sam Levin:
<p>[Brooke] Binkowski, who left [fact-checking site] Snopes earlier this year and now runs her own factchecking site, which does not partner with Facebook, said the Facebook-Snopes partnership quickly became counterproductive. During early conversations with Facebook, Binkowski said she tried to raise concerns about misuse of the platform abroad, such as the explosion of hate speech and misinformation during the Rohingya crisis in Myanmar and other violent propaganda.

“I was bringing up Myanmar over and over and over,” she said. “They were absolutely resistant.”

Binkowski, who previously reported on immigration and refugees, said Facebook largely ignored her: “I strongly believe that they are spreading fake news on behalf of hostile foreign powers and authoritarian governments as part of their business model.”

Kim LaCapria recently left Snopes as a content manager and factchecker partly due to her frustrations with the Facebook arrangement. She said it quickly seemed clear that Facebook wanted the “appearance of trying to prevent damage without actually doing anything” and that she was particularly upset to learn that Facebook was paying Snopes: “That felt really gross … Facebook has one mission and factchecking websites should have a completely different mission.”

Binkowski said that on at least one occasion, it appeared that Facebook was pushing reporters to prioritize debunking misinformation that affected Facebook advertisers, which she thought crossed a line: “You’re not doing journalism any more. You’re doing propaganda.”</p>

Facebook didn't like this, and put out <a href="https://newsroom.fb.com/news/2018/12/guardian-fact-check/">a grumpy response</a>, principally about the advertiser/misinformation point in that latter paragraph.

'They don't care': Facebook fact-checking in disarray as journalists push to cut ties | Technology | The Guardian
Current and former Facebook fact-checkers told the Guardian that the tech platform’s collaboration with outside reporters has produced minimal results and that they’ve lost trust in Facebook, which has repeatedly refused to release meaningful data about the impacts of their work. Some said Facebook’s hiring of a PR firm that used an antisemitic narrative to discredit critics – fueling the same kind of propaganda fact-checkers regularly debunk – should be a deal-breaker.

Meet the Bottomless Pinocchio, a new rating for a false claim repeated over and over again - The Washington Post
“To accurately reflect this phenomenon, The Washington Post Fact Checker is introducing a new category — the Bottomless Pinocchio. That dubious distinction will be awarded to politicians who repeat a false claim so many times that they are, in effect, engaging in campaigns of disinformation.

“The bar for the Bottomless Pinocchio is high: The claims must have received three or four Pinocchios from The Fact Checker, and they must have been repeated at least 20 times. Twenty is a sufficiently robust number that there can be no question the politician is aware that his or her facts are wrong. The list of Bottomless Pinocchios will be maintained on its own landing page.”

The red couch experiments: Early lessons in pop-up fact-checking » Nieman Journalism Lab
The participants saw four-minute excerpts of speeches by Barack Obama and Donald Trump that had been retrofitted with actual fact checks. We could manipulate the displays to show the checks in different formats — with a Truth-O-Meter rating from PolitiFact, with rating words such as “true” or “false,” or with just a “summary text” of facts that mostly left it to viewers to figure out if the claim was accurate.

FactStream debuted live fact-checking with last night’s SOTU. How’d it go?
January 31, 2018
Our most important finding: People love this new form of TV fact-checking. Participants were unanimous that they would like a feature like this during political events such as debates and speeches. They said it would hold politicians more accountable for what they say. Some of the participants said they liked the service so much that they would choose a network that offered fact-checks over one that did not.
