Breaking: META commits to working alongside Australian Government Electoral authorities and “Fact-Checkers” to stop “misinformation” and “disinformation” about the Voice to Parliament Referendum on its platforms.
We all know what that means.
Zuckberg’s company has made a commitment to pump undisclosed amounts of money into RMIT Factlab and Australian Associated Press to aid in fact-checking efforts by META to fortify the referendum vote.
Free advertising has also bee allocated UN linked entities to promote media literacy in the lead up to the vote, while RMIT will help liaise with journalists and mainstream media to instruct them on how to write articles that are in-line with META’s policies.
In my opinion it’s all coming together nicely for the Labor government, who have recently been complaining about alleged “misinformation” and “disinformation” impacting the reach of their Yes Vote campaign.
