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.”

If Facebook deems a post “false” they have the ability to reduce the page’s content distribution, remove advertisers and page monetization and remove the page’s ability to register as a news page. Facebook users will also be able to see if a page has a history of sharing “false news.”

“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.

San Francisco voters have officially recalled extreme progressive Chesa Boudin. The San Francisco Chronicle noted the event as a “historic recall.”

“The election, closely-watched across the nation, came after months of intense debate over criminal justice and public safety in San Francisco” writes the Chronicle.

The voters are “frustrated with a dysfunctional city” and horrendous crime rates. They saw “an elected official unwilling to acknowledge he was at least partly responsible for the problems – and cast him out.”

Boudin received an overwhelming 60% vote in favor of recall. San Francisco voters “embrace being labeled as progressive” but “decided they wanted a more traditional crime-fighter as district attorney and delivered what will be viewed nationally as a blow to efforts to reshape criminal justice” adds the Chronicle.
