Oakland News Now – Philippines Government Funds Creation Of Facebook Troll Farms, Senators Seek Investigation. The article was called “Twelve PH senators seek probe into public funding of troll farms | ANC” – video made by the YouTube channel with the logo in the video’s upper left hand corner. OaklandNewsNow.com is the original blog post for this type of video-blog content.
The question I have about the news that “Philippines Government Funds Creation Of Facebook Troll Farms, Senators Seek Investigation” is to what extent is this done in the American context? Are there state and local governments doing this? The federal government?
NBC News spotlighted the problem in a post from May 29th, 2020, entitled “Troll farms from North Macedonia and the Philippines pushed coronavirus disinformation on Facebook”
One of the largest publishers of coronavirus disinformation on Facebook has been banned from the platform for using content farms from North Macedonia and the Philippines, Facebook said on Friday.
The publisher, Natural News, was one of the most prolific pushers of the viral “Plandemic” conspiracy video, which falsely claimed that the coronavirus is part of an elaborate government plot to control the populace through vaccines, and erroneously claimed that wearing a mask increases the risk of catching the coronavirus.
Facebook said that it had found foreign trolls repeatedly posted content from Natural News, an anti-vaccination news site that frequently posts false coronavirus conspiracy theories about 5G towers and Bill Gates. They also posted content from Natural News’ sister websites, NewsTarget and Brighteon, in an effort to artificially inflate their reach.
“We removed these Pages for spammy and abusive behavior, not the content they posted. They misled people about the popularity of their posts and relied on content farms in North Macedonia and the Philippines,” Facebook said in a statement.
But now comes the news that some of the same Facebook troll farms are financed by the Philippines Government.
What follows in the YouTube video has nothing to do with the subject of Facebook troll farms, so it was removed here.
Rundown: Twelve Philippine senators are seeking a senate probe into the alleged use of public funds to run social media troll farms.
