Sayer Ji is outraged by a “Google Document Dump” that allegedly shows that Google views antivaccine views as being similar to conspiracy theories like Pizzagate, QAnon, Holocaust denial, and the like. I’m surprised that, if these documents are real, Google actually “gets” what antivaccine views are.
Stop Mandatory Vaccination is one of the largest antivaccine groups on Facebook. This week its creator and administrator Larry Cook announced that Facebook is on the verge of deleting it. Is Facebook finally getting serious about anti vaccine misinformation on its platform?
Yesterday, social media giant Facebook announced that it was acting against medical misinformation by using keyphrases to deprioritize results promoting misinformation and scams? Is it enough, and is it too late?
Everyone’s favorite quack Joe Mercola is ranting about Google. It’s not surprising, given how Google has apparently deprioritized content from quack websites..
Mike Adams has been a peddler of conspiracy theories for over 20 years. Over the weekend Facebook banned him, interrupting the grift, at least somewhat.
