In the wake of the 2016 US presidential election, the way Facebook and other sites helped amplify fake news was found to have had a profound impact on how people reacted to current events. So earlier this year, Facebook implemented a new system to mark inaccurate stories with a "disputed" tag to help alert readers to potentially false stories. Well it seems that was a mistake, too, because now Facebook is doing away with the disputed tags.
