Facebook, Twitter To Ban Biased Media From Their Sites

SAN FRANCISCO, California (The Adobo Chronicles, San Francisco Bureau) – Just days after Facebook and Twitter announced they were joining a coalition that would address the problem of misinformation and fake news on social media, the two Internet giants said that they would also ban legitimate media — not all, but the biased media.

Upon learning of this new development, three Philippine news media companies scrambled to convene their respective legal departments in an effort to challenge Facebook and Twitter on their latest policy announcement.

The three news media companies are Rappler, Inquirer and ABS-CBN — biased media all.

It wasn’t clear whether GMA will be included in the ban now that former presidential sister Kris Aquino has joined the network after deciding not to renew her contract with ABS-CBN.
