Stoessel Sues Facebook

John Stossel Sues Facebook Alleging Defamation Over Fact-Check Label, Seeks at Least $2 Million

In one video, "Government Fueled Fires,” about the 2020 wildfires in California, Facebook and its fact-checking partners "falsely attributed to Stossel a claim he never made, and on that basis flagged the content as ‘misleading’ and ‘missing context,’ so that would-be viewers would be routed to the false attribution statement.” The complaint says that Stossel’s video "explored a scientific hypothesis” that "while climate change undoubtedly contributes to forest fires, it was not the primary cause of the 2020 California fires.” Per the suit, Stossel says he never made the claim that "Forest fires are caused by poor management. Not by climate change,” which was in Facebook’s fact-check.

On the second video, "Are We Doomed?”, Facebook added a "partly false”/"factual inaccuracies” label. That video questioned claims made by those Stossel refers to as "environmental alarmists,” including "claims that hurricanes are getting stronger, that sea level rise poses a catastrophic threat, and that humans will be unable to cope with the fallout.” Stossel claims the Facebook fact-check didn’t actually challenge any facts in the video, and he argues that the company’s fact-check process "is nothing more than a pretext… to defame users with impunity, particularly when Defendants disagree with the scientific opinions expressed in user content.”

1 Here's a cheer for Stossel -- he's very much one of the good guys. Let's hope he's successful with this suit.

2 Receiving strong, consistent feedback to perform their best at work is one of the perks on every website. It is also to gain viewers and users. I believe positive or negative shows how credible you have here. I am thankful for these chances. Let's be good all the time. à¸šà¸²à¸„าร่าสด

3 Yeah; Stossel woke up a long time ago and so they have had to tolerate him since he was so successful prior, but he's going a bit too far for them. I fear they may have something nasty in store for John. He needs our support.
