Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, is the latest conservative politician to be censored under Facebook’s “fact-checking” rules.
Jordan shared an article Thursday about election integrity to his Facebook page. Shortly after it was shared, Facebook labeled it as “Partly False Information-checked by independent fact checkers.”
According to Facebook, the post was reviewed by Lead Stories. Facebook has partnered with Lead Stories to “debunk hoaxes.”
From LeadStories.com: “Lead Stories uses the Trendolizer™ engine to detect the most trending stories from known fake news, satire and prank websites and tries to debunk them as fast as possible.”
“We know Big Tech’s out to get conservatives. Now they’re actively threatening to reduce news traffic that we provide to our constituents,” Rep. Jordan told this reporter Friday.
The censorship issue has been ongoing, amid a series of incidents in which Facebook and Twitter have added warning labels on posts from President Trump after deeming them misleading or false. Recently, Trump has accused Twitter of “conservative discrimination” and called for an end of Section 230.
Trump tweeted last night that he is still planning on vetoing Section 230.

Don Lemon loses it on Senators Manchin, Sinema for holding up voting bill: ‘that’s bull***’
CNN’s Don Lemon cursed out those “moderates” such as Senators Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) “who are blocking people’s access to the voting booth, they want to use Dr. King conveniently. They’re the biggest hypocrites on the planet.”
“If Sinema and Manchin really want to honor the legacy of Dr. King and all the people who fought for civil rights and voting rights in this country, what they would do is to carve out for voting rights with the filibuster” he continued.
“But for some reason they are stuck with these rules that are backwards…The filibuster has been used to block civil rights legislation forever and so we need to stop that. We evolved. Just because there is a rule doesn’t mean that that rule can’t change. The Constitution is amended. So it’s time to amend the rules. And fight and, and protect the most sacred right that we have as Americans, and that is the right to vote.”
Lemon then quotes Dr. Martin Luther King about a “white moderate, who is more devoted to ‘order’ than to justice….who lives by a mythical concept of time and who constantly advises the Negro to wait for a ‘more convenient season.”
That sounds like the moderates, says Lemon, referring to Senators Manchin and Sinema. “And you’re supposed to be a Democrat who espouses to the ideals of Dr. King. That’s bull***t that’s B.S.”
"That’s bull … That’s BS. And you should be ashamed of yourself. You are a hypocrite." @donlemon unloads on lawmakers who want to honor Martin Luther King, Jr. while standing in the way of voting rights reform by opposing the filibuster. pic.twitter.com/UKX0tQGI2E
