“The freedom of speech and paid speech is not the same thing,” the letter read. “The wrong information, all of us. Our policy on fact-checking by people in politics, or those who have to get to the office, are a threat to what FB stands for. We strongly object to this policy, such as it is. It does not vote and instead allow the politicians to weaponize our platform, the focus is on the people who believe that the content is posted by the political actors to be reliable, it is.”
