An article by Breitbart about one of Roy Moore’s accusers, Beverly Nelson, has been widely shared on social media. Unfortunately, you might not see if for yourself on Facebook because the social media giant is censoring the story from timelines.
Here’s the article in question:
And in yet another blow to the credibility of ABC News, the disgraced, left-wing network downplayed the bombshell by presenting this admission of forgery as adding “notes” to the inscription. Worse still, the reporter actually coaches Nelson, puts words in her mouth, downplay the enormous significance of her deceit.
“Nelson admits she did make notes to the inscription,” ABC News tells us. “But the message was all Roy Moore.”
“Beverly, he signed your yearbook,” ABC News reporter Tom Llamas says.
“He did sign it,” she replies.
“And you made some notes underneath.”
“Yes,” Nelson says.
And then, after a woman admits to forging a document used in a campaign to destroy the Republican nominee for the U.S. Senate in Alabama, ABC News quickly moves on as though it is not news of extraordinary consequence.
As you can see, this isn’t an op-ed attacking the accuser or defending Moore. It’s a factual news article that, for whatever reason, doesn’t meet Facebook’s “high” standards. Who holds the keys to those standards? In this case, it’s PolitiFact. A NOQ Report contributor shared the article, then received a notification about it:
One can make an argument that the headline is sensationalized, but to be “disputed” by PolitiFact is clearly part of their left-leaning agenda. The alterations to the signature were allegedly limited to adding the date and location. Moore has maintained that he didn’t sign the yearbook, wasn’t aware of the location he allegedly signed it, and didn’t know Nelson until he presided over her divorce proceedings in 1999.
