SAN JOSE, California (The Adobo Chronicles, San Jose Bureau) – Mark Zuckerberg is sick and tired of mainstream media masquerading as legitimate news outlets, like Rappler in the Philippines.
Today, he announced the launch of Facebook Satire News, in partnership with some of the most respected satire news sites all over the world.
In a press statement, Zuckerberg said Facebook users deserve a page dedicated to brilliant and entertaining reporting of worldwide news developments as opposed to the biased and sloppy reporting by so-called legitimate news media.
Ironically, Rappler is a designated Facebook fact-checker, along with Vera Files. Zuckerberg said the contracts with the two fact-checkers will soon be terminated. “It’s just not working,” he said.
