TikTok to flag and downgrade videos with unverifiable claims

TikTok said it is adding a new feature to combat the spread of misinformation on the platform. Now, it will not just remove videos found to be spreading false information, the company says it will now also flag videos whose claims can’t be fact-checked. It noted that these videos may also be banned from being promoted into anyone’s ’For You’ page. The feature will come to US and Canada first.

So this would include religion, aliens, theoretical physics.....so many things that can't be literally "fact-checked." But we all know their "facts" aren't going to be objective and measurable, but are purely subjective ideology from a leftist perspective.

I know it's mostly political and scientific claims, but can this also apply to "life hacks"?

Maybe I'm just a cranky old man in a young adults' body, but I never understood the appeal of Tiktok, or its' predecessor for that matter.

Biden won a clean and fair election. My claim is unverified. Now censor me.

Wonder if this will include anything the CCP doesn't like

This is to win the Democrats' favor. Biden will let his masters' video app survive and monitor American citizens.
