Facebook's policies may result in the removal of factually false posts, but...

"If a claim is made directly by a politician on their Page, in an ad or on their website, it is considered direct speech and ineligible for our third party fact checking program — even if the substance of that claim has been debunked elsewhere." source

In other words, Facebook allows money to spread lies said by politicians. This is not, as Facebook claims, committing to fighting the spread of fake news. This is Facebook committing to its profits.

Why does Facebook get to decide that politicians can say whatever they want, while everyone else can't? On Facebook, paid speech by politicians is prioritized over free speech by the people.

STOP EXCLUDING POLITICIANS FROM FACEBOOK POLICIES.
