In a court filing from November 21, 2021 on page 24 of 32, the following can be found:
- "First, Meta is alleged only to have superimposed a fact-check label on the Fire Video, describing Climate Feedback’s conclusion that the video was “missing context.” Stossel does not claim that label is actionably false—presumably because it is protected opinion. The conclusion that the video was “missing context” is necessarily a judgment call, one that is “not capable of verification or refutation by means of objective proof.”"
Thus Meta (i.e. Facebook) has openly admitted that so called "fact checks" are in fact opinion pieces. The name "fact checker" is thus wildly misleading.
