How Facebook Decides If You See Nudity or Death (HBO)

Facebook employs 4,500 content moderators around the world. Moderators get two weeks of training and a stack of manuals to help them police the site for racism, misogyny, violence, and pornography.

VICE’s partners at The Guardian obtained more than a hundred of these manuals and they offer the first-ever look at the sometimes logical, sometimes inexplicable ways Facebook asks a few thousand people to help patrol its close to 2 billion users.

This segment is part of the May 23rd VICE News Tonight episode.

Rick Scott after she said in March that she would no longer seek the death penalty. Ayala is suing to get the cases back, arguing that Scott does not have the authority to remove her from the cases. VICE News profiles Ayala, who is also the first black state attorney in Florida’s history.
