In my daily internet browsing I came across a very interesting article by Postmodern.gr. The article accuses the well-known Ellinika Hoaxes page of misinformation and publishing Fake news.
I quote its introduction (continue reading it and your own conclusions):
Dimitris Kalantzis writes.
On the eve of the European elections of 2019, the powerful international social networking site Facebook assigns to a Greek amateur team the control of the accuracy of publications posted on the network in our country. To be precise, it enables this group to DESTROY websites, calling them sources of "misinformation" and "fake news".
The power it gives her is truly terrifying. If the group decides that a post is fake, it blocks it by placing a warning, "cuts" the news traffic and, in case of "page recurrence", no longer displays it with the same frequency to the users who selected it.
There is no warning or objection procedure. In other words, the Ellinika Hoaxes do not say on one page "you have a post that is false or misleading and correct it because there will be consequences". It proceeds immediately to the characterization, while, no procedure has been provided for the correction or submission of an "objection" to the "verdict" of the group.
On June 17, 2020, the Ellinika Hoaxes team "decides" that the websites alfavita.gr, news247.gr, in.gr, tovima.gr, documentonews.gr, tvxs.gr, ethnos.gr, koutipandoras.gr, sportime.gr in MISINFORMATION, as the news about the abolition of art courses in secondary education is FAKE NEWS!
Audacity; Drunk on the power to destroy any website she does not like? Ignorance of basic ethics towards social media users?
