Real v fake: edited Nancy Pelosi clip goes viral

The FAKE video, which slowed Nancy Pelosi comments down to make her appear drunk "has racked up millions of views, with Facebook refusing to remove it."

Instead, Facebook finally "downgraded the video's visibility and included a link to a fact-checking website, pointing out that the footage is misleading."

Facebook Removed Nearly 3.4 Billion Fake Accounts In 6 Months
May 23, 20196:58 PM ET

Facebook says it removed 3.39 billion fake accounts from October to March. That's twice the number of fraudulent accounts deleted in the previous six-month period.

In the company's latest Community Standards Enforcement Report, released Thursday, Facebook said nearly all of the fake accounts were caught by artificial intelligence and more human monitoring. They also attributed the skyrocketing number to "automated attacks by bad actors who attempt to create large volumes of accounts at one time."

The fake accounts are roughly a billion more than the 2.4 billion actual people on Facebook worldwide, according to the company's own count.

"Most of these accounts were blocked within minutes of their creation before they could do any harm," Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg told reporters in a call on Thursday.

1. Relying on FB and Google to accurately censor or otherwise limit false information.........

is akin to a homeless person going into Bank America and asking for a million dollar loan.
