Facebook Fact-Checking Group Apologizes for Wrongly Flagging Article Questioning Face Masks in Schools

By Katabella Roberts


Facebook fact-checking group on Tuesday admitted that it had incorrectly flagged an article by Reason magazine that questioned whether or not wearing face masks in schools can limit outbreaks of COVID-19.

Science Feedback, a fact-checking organization partnered with Facebook, flagged a Reason article on Facebook written by Robby Soave and titled “The Study That Convinced the CDC To Support Mask Mandates in Schools Is Junk Science.”

The organization had said the article contained “false information, checked by independent fact-checkers” and its writer received a disclaimer noting that “pages and websites that repeatedly publish or share false news will see their overall distribution reduced and be restricted in other ways,” according to Reason.
