I thought there needed to be a general repository that covers this topic, so voila.
So far Wilders (PVV) has won the second most votes out of like 15 parties. The Dutch form multi-party coalitions to form a majority, and Wilders' party is just one seat away from having a multi-party coalition majority. There are still 22 more voting districts to count so we probably won't know for sure how it turns out until 4-5am EST.So which way did it go. I cannot read the foreign language at that site.
Bold mine.Facebook suspended 30,000 French accounts ten days before a hotly contested election.
Critics argue the move is in an attempt to censor Marine Le Pens surging popularity.
Japan Today reported:
"Facebook Inc said on Thursday it suspended 30,000 accounts in France as the social network giant steps up efforts to stop the spread of fake news, misinformation and spam.
The move, which comes 10 days before the first round of a hotly contested French presidential election, is among the most aggressive yet by Facebook to move against accounts that violate its terms of service, rather than simply respond to complaints.
Facebook is under intense pressure in Europe as governments across the continent threaten new laws and fines unless the company moves quickly to remove extremist propaganda or other content that violates local laws."
http://money.cnn.com/2017/04/14/media/facebook-fake-news-france-election/"These accounts were targeted because they are fake. Full stop," a Facebook spokesman told CNNTech. He said that taking down fake accounts helps prevent hoaxes, spam, political trolling and fake news.
The article later says the 30,000 accounts are "fake accounts."
What political leanings do you think the 'fact checkers' (Facebook's arbiters of truth) trend toward?Facebook recently began warning users that certain stories have been "disputed by fact checkers."
