Facebook fact-checks GOP presidential candidate's campaign suspension notice: Republican presidential hopeful and current Florida Governor Ron DeSantis announced that he was suspending his campaign through a video message posted on his Facebook page. Text was added to the post that read "'Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.' - Winston Churchill." Facebook placed a fact check label on the post, claiming that the quote was misattributed. When attempting to share the post, user's are first presented with a notice that reads: "False information in this post. Independent fact-checkers at Check Your Fact say this post has false information. To help stop the spread of false news, a notice will be added to your post if you decide to share this." According to Facebook, users fail to click through fact-check interstitials 95% of the time.
