Facebook added a label to a post on Breitbart News’ page trying to persuade voters that mail-in voting has a “long history of trustworthiness,” citing a “bipartisan” think-tank from the D.C. swamp. The social network added the note underneath a post from Breitbart containing a livestream of President Trump’s rally in Lumberton, North Carolina.

“Voting by mail has a long history of trustworthiness in the US and the same is predicted this year. Voter fraud is extremely rare across voting methods (Source: Bipartisan Policy Center),” reads Facebook’s label on the Breitbart News post.

Facebook has yet to provide a comment to Breitbart News explaining why the note was added to its post.

Instead, a Facebook spokeswoman pointed Breitbart to a post from Mark Zuckerberg explaining the company’s efforts to, among other things, stop “misinformation” about voting from going viral on the platform.
