Well known US TV presenter John Stossel has problems with the new Facebook censors:
You may recall a similar occurrence earlier in the year, when a group called Friends of Science were also awarded a “Misleading” tag by Facebook, again purely based on fake advice from the same Climate Feedback group who have attempted to censor Stossel.
And FoS’ offence? Simply to repost an article by the Volunteer Firefighters which pointed out that the major factor in why Victoria’s bushfires at the time were so bad was poor management of national parks and the failure to reduce hazardous fuel loads and clear vegetation. Yes, you read it right – the firefighters, who know all about the realities on the ground, were deemed by a climate scientist not to know what they were talking about.
As FOS had reposted the firefighters article via my website, they were advised by Facebook that I should appeal to Climate Feedback. As with Stossel originally, I never even received a reply.
So a bunch of self elected “experts” are allowed to censor anybody who does not share their version of the truth. And there is no right to an independent appeal!
John Stossel mentions that Stefan Doerr is one of the “experts” at Climate Feedback, who decided his report was misleading. Doerr was also at the heart of the complaint against FOS.
Stossel also mentions Zeke Hausfather, who was heavily involved with the Berkeley Earth project. In recent years, he has been one of the main go-to guys for climate alarmists.
Both are so heavily into the propaganda side, that their objectiveness simply cannot be trusted. Needless to say, neither have any expertise whatsover with forestry or the science of wildfires.
It is bad enough that the likes of Doerr and Hausfather can set themsleves up as self appointed Guardians of the Truth. It is simply astonishing that Facebook should kowtow to them.
BTW- John Stossel produces weekly videos, which challenge what he calls mainstream media bias and scare stories. I would recommend subscribing to Stossel TV here: https://www.johnstossel.com/
