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!

Meghan McCain Faces Twitter Backlash For Telling Roger Stone to “Rot in Hell”

“I thought he was going to prison, not vacationing with your father.”

Published

Meghan McCain was hit with a Twitter backlash after she appeared to celebrate the potential prison death of Roger Stone by tweeting, “rot in hell.”

Stone was convicted on 7 counts in his federal trial yesterday and faces a jail sentence of up to 50 years. If hit with a term of anything more than 10 years, he is likely to die in prison.

“Rot in hell, Roger Stone,” tweeted McCain in response.

McCain’s tweet is particularly vile and hypocritical given that she has constantly complained about people celebrating her father’s death.

Respondents to the tweet didn’t hold back

“I thought he was going to prison, not vacationing with your father,” wrote one.

“We all know your dad had a VIP spot in Hell,” tweeted Rhoda Ross-Williams.

“Didn’t you complain when people said the same about your Dad?” asked lawyer Robert Barnes.

“Any last ounce of respect I had for you (and it wasn’t much!) is officially gone now!” remarked Courtney Holland.

And finally, McCain blocked yours truly merely for suggesting that it wasn’t classy to celebrate anyone’s death.

Self-awareness check.

Trump Hater Tom Arnold’s Veiled Threat: Roger Stone “Died in Prison”

Unhinged actor in yet another bizarre outburst aimed at Mike Cernovich.

Published

on

Trump hating actor Tom Arnold launched another bizarre Twitter outburst when he appeared to wish for Roger Stone’s death by suggesting the former Trump confidant would end up like Jeffrey Epstein.

Stone was convicted on 7 counts in his federal trial today and faces a jail sentence of up to 50 years.

Journalists who spoke to Stone in recent days says he fears being ‘Epsteined’ in jail, a reference to the “suicide” of the billionaire sex trafficker which many people think was a deliberate assassination.

In response to Mike Cernovich, who tweeted, “Roger Stone was prosecuted more aggressively than Jeffrey Epstein, that tells you all you need to know about the rule of law in America,” Arnold responded, “Roger Stone & Jeffery Epstein were very close to Donald Trump. Then they died in prison. Who’s next Pizzagate?”

Despite facing a potential long stretch behind bars, Stone has not yet “died in prison.”

The tweet was also a veiled threat against Mike Cernovich since the tweet was a response to Cernovich, who has mockingly been referred to the as the “pizzagate guy” by the media.

Arnold is clearly suggesting that Cernovich should be the next person to ‘die in prison’ like Epstein and potentially Stone if he is slapped with a lengthy sentence.

This is by no means the first time Arnold has suffered a Twitter meltdown.

Last month, he falsely accused Jack Posobiec of trafficking child porn, opening up clear grounds for a lawsuit.

Earlier that same month, Arnold raised the prospect of another JFK-style assassination after President Trump arrived in Dallas, Texas for an event at the American Airlines Center.

As we previously highlighted, the actor’s wife claimed that Arnold’s obsession with Donald Trump combined with his drug addiction led to the end of their marriage.

“Tom’s fixation on ‘taking down’ Donald Trump was an ongoing issue in our marriage,” said Arnold’s wife, adding “For the past two years it has consumed his life and presented numerous safety issues for our family.”

She also accused the actor of “abuse of prescription drugs,” namely Phentermine and Fenfluramine.

Roger Stone Fears He’s Going to be ‘Epsteined’ in Jail

Trump confidant found guilty on all 7 counts now concerned for his life.

Published

on

After being convicted on all 7 counts in his federal trial, Roger Stone now fears he will be ‘Epsteined’ in jail.

The former Trump confidant was found guilty today of all 7 counts against him, including witness tampering and making false statements.

Stone’s supporters assert that the charges were just another aspect of the witch hunt conducted by the deep state against Trump and his allies as part of a coup to overthrow the president.

With Stone facing the rest of his life behind bars, he now fears an even worse fate.

“I saw Roger Stone a couple nights ago and he told me he’s scared they’re going to Epstein him. I can’t say that I think his fear is unfounded,” tweeted journalist Cassandra Fairbanks.

Jeffrey Epstein purportedly committed suicide but many people do not believe the official explanation given reports that he was about to name high level individuals who were complicit in his sex trafficking ring.

Stone will still be hoping that he can avoid jail via a presidential pardon, although the chances of that happening look slim.
