Facebook finally admits that their so-called “fact-checkers” are just opinion checkers. The truth came out in a court of law from a lawsuit filed against Facebook by journalist John Stossel.

Facebook responded to Stossel’s defamation claim in the court document by saying they cannot be sued for defamation because their fact-checkers “are mere statements of opinion rather than factual assertions.”
