Instagram to “Fact Check” & Remove Memes

Because the left can’t meme.

Published

on

Instagram has announced that it will begin “fact checking” and removing memes.

The social media giant, which is owned by Facebook, will use its 52 global “fact checking partners” to censor “false photos and memes on its platform,” according to Poynter.

“Instagram is taking those fact checks and applying them to the same false photos and memes on its platform,” according to the report.

Memes deemed factually incorrect will no longer appear under tabs where they can be discovered by random users.

The Poynter Institute, which partners with Facebook, recently had to shut down its own database highlighting unreliable news sites “after discovering inconsistencies between sources used to build the database and its final report.”

So you can trust them.

Quite why memes have to be “fact checked” given that are almost always satirical and are not intended to be statements of fact may be a mystery to some.

It’s actually not a mystery at all.

Studies have repeatedly shown that the political right is far better at spreading memes.

A study undertaken by researchers at University College London found that the most effective memes largely originated in two places – the subreddit r/the_donald – a forum devoted to boosting President Donald Trump, and 4chan’s politically incorrect /pol forum.

A VICE write-up of the study acknowledges that the most “effectively spread” memes originated on r/the_donald and /pol.

Earlier this year, BuzzFeed lobbied Twitter to ban a meme which made fun of Democrats and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

Last year, “Facebook announced the deployment of a large-scale machine learning system named Rosetta, which it’s using to automatically and proactively identify “inappropriate or harmful content” in images on the social network,” reported Fox News. “In other words, Facebook developed an AI that can tell if a meme is offensive.”

It’s a scientific fact that the left can’t meme, so far easier just to ban memes!

Podcast king Joe Rogan demanded to know to why “no one is being held accountable,” within the media over the almost four year long fake ‘Russian collusion’ narrative, pointing out that “the collusion between the media and the government is pretty apparent.”

In an interview with Jocko Willink, Rogan noted that “especially the left-wing media and the left-wing government. It’s pretty fucking apparent that there are some narratives that get shared back and forth.”

He continued, “They have talking points and they don’t talk about things they’re not supposed to, like the Hunter Biden story. Something that’s actual news.”

“Because if that was the Donald Trump Jr. laptop, holy fucking shit, would that lead every night!” Rogan emphasised.

“I mean this whole Russia collusion story has turned out to be complete nonsense,” the host continued.

Willink chimed in “That is insane. Three and a half years the American public was getting beat down with the Russia collusion thing and it was created by the Democratic Party!”

“And it wasn’t real! … And no one is being held accountable!” Rogan reiterated.

Watch:

As Rogan noted earlier this month, the only people who believe this stuff anymore are cult members.
