I've reported how Facebook censors me. Now I've learned that they also censor environmentalist Michael Shellenberger, statistician Bjorn Lomborg and former New York Times columnist John Tierney. Facebook's “fact-checkers” claim we spread “misinformation.” In my new video, Tierney argues that the “people guilty of spreading misinformation are Facebook and its fact-checkers.” He's right…
