Facebook warns JAMA study on children's COVID masks 'false news,' sharers will be punished

- JUST THE NEWS - JULY 7, 2021 - Greg Piper -

Pages, websites that repeatedly publish or share false news will see "overall distribution reduced and be restricted' in other ways," says warning.

Facebook is warning users against sharing a study that found dangerously high carbon-dioxide intake in masked schoolchildren, published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) Pediatrics.

"Pages and websites that repeatedly publish or share false news will see their overall distribution reduced and be restricted in other ways," the warning says when users paste the link on Facebook, before confirming they want to share it.

It's giving the same warning and threat of account restrictions to users who paste a link to article on a University of Florida lab that found dangerous pathogens on children's face masks, submitted for testing by their parents.

Just the News confirmed the warnings popped up on the two articles when pasting the links in Facebook posts. Each recommends a fact-check by organizations authorized by Facebook to vet posted articles — Lead Stories for the JAMA Pediatrics study, whose URL starts "hoax alert," and AFP France for the mask-pathogen lab report.
