Twitter updated its fact-check points on President Trump’s tweet.

Twitter updated the third point in its fact check on Trump’s tweet in relation to states using mail ballots. Per Business Insider, WSJ reported that it was slightly misleading not wrong, to group Nebraska which has mail ballots on request, with states like UT & OR which have mainly used mail ballots. NE has joined GA, IA, MI to send absentee ballot request for May 12 primary; 80% votes were mailed

That's what happens when it's not so much of a "fact check" as opposed to "Here's what we believe and you will accept it as fact."

That's because postmodernists think opinion at any given moment is fact. Those facts change based every second, based on what power can be gained by changing of the facts. Or everything is about power. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Postmodernism Analytic philosopher Daniel Dennett said, "Postmodernism, the school of 'thought' that proclaimed 'There are no truths, only interpretations' has largely played itself out in absurdity, but it has left behind a generation of academics in the humanities disabled by their distrust of the very idea of truth and their disrespect for evidence, settling for 'conversations' in which nobody is wrong and nothing can be confirmed, only asserted with whatever style you can muster."[118] Daniel A. Farber and Suzanna Sherry criticised postmodernism for reducing the complexity of the modern world to an expression of power and for undermining truth and reason: According to the new radicals, the Enlightenment-inspired ideas that have previously structured our world, especially the legal and academic parts of it, are a fraud perpetrated and perpetuated by white males to consolidate their own power. Those who disagree are not only blind but bigoted. The Enlightenment's goal of an objective and reasoned basis for knowledge, merit, truth, justice, and the like is an impossibility: "objectivity," in the sense of standards of judgment that transcend individual perspectives, does not exist. Reason is just another code word for the views of the privileged. The Enlightenment itself merely replaced one socially constructed view of reality with another, mistaking power for knowledge. There is naught but power.[120]

Twitter didn’t get it right? Well it’s a good thing they’re in charge of making arbitrary decisions about censorship.

The original article is an opinion piece by a Republican Representative.I wouldn't take it as gospel until it's being reported as news rather than "opinion"

Surprise Surprise. Twitter is absolutely the last platform that should be doing fact checking. And once they go down this slippery slope, they’ll need to own it and fact check EVERYONE evenly.

DELETE THIS APP NOW! Just read these articles and the supposed "Center" article posted is a bald assertion backing up NOTHING! This is a goddamn disgrace to journalism; cherry picked facts and no supporting documents. Newsvoice is NOT UNBIASED, it is a tool of the right to normalize their garage. Bye, Felicia.

When you present something as facts it's still an opinion until you prove otherwise. The burden of proof falls to the first one to make a claim

I'm amazed people listen to this cannibal. But yes, if twitter is going down the rout of fact checking then it should be done to all blue check marks.
