They can pick and choose what they want. You can also complain, if enough do, they may revisit that particular site being blocked in messages.
I am not sure it is because FB doesn't want you or the recipient to see that particular site, possibly it is on a list of sites with malware. FB will receive a list of thousands of these daily from whatever company does that for them.
At mail.com, where I have a few email addresses, when I click on ANY link in an email I get a pop up saying "This link will take you out of mail.com Are you SURE you want to continue?" I sort of appreciate that feature. It may have slowed John Posesta's roll LOL.
That part will give some less tech saavy among us a second to think.
Agreed. The solution is requiring the press to actually uphold journalistic principles and provide rigorous, investigate, accurate information. Currently much of the info mainstream media provides is naught but propaganda.

I've been meaning to start a thread on this topic. Fake news is a former of entertainment as far as I'm concerned. The MSM has shaken the confidence of the public in the quality of the news being reported.
Rather than banning free speech, we should be focusing on why no one trusts the MSM to restore their confidence. Instead of passing legislation in conflict with the first ammendment, maybe what we really need is to pass legislation that requires truthful, accurate and complete reporting for news outlets that desire to be recognized as credible sources. Maybe even guidelines on the amount of airtime allowed or required for certain subjects.
