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!

Biden Suggests He May Not Run in 2024

“That remains to be seen.”

Joe Biden appeared to suggest for the first time that he may not run in 2024, which if true will come as a relief to many top Democrats.

Biden made the comments during an interview with CBS 60 Minutes.

When asked whether he had made a “firm decision” on whether to run for re-election, where he will most likely face off against Donald Trump again, Biden prevaricated.

“Look, my intention, as I said to begin with, is that I would run again,” Biden said in response, before adding, “But it’s just an intention. But is it a firm decision that I run again?” That remains to be seen.”

The remarks are different in tone to Biden’s previous suggestions that he will definitely run again two years from now.

Biden also suggested that a final decision would be made next year.

“It’s much too early to make that kind of decision,” he said. “I’m a great respecter of fate. And so, what I’m doing is I’m doing my job. I’m gonna do that job. And within the timeframe that makes sense after this next election cycle here, going into next year, make a judgment on what to do.”

With Biden’s poll numbers continuing to be a cause for concern, many Democrats are also worried that the president’s cognitive abilities are rapidly on the wane, and that he could get slaughtered in debates by Trump.

Biden would be in his mid-80’s by the time he left the White House if he won again in 2024.

Some have also pointed out the optics of Biden running against Trump, given the president’s involvement in the FBI raid on Trump’s home, asserting that it represents a clear act of political persecution.
