If it's threats, lies and disinformation, yes.
The problem lies in who make that determination. Truly objective fact checkers are rare. You may determine that something is false due to your hearing what you think is true, but often what you think is false is the real truth, and vice versa.

Of course we can trust the MSM and social media to do the right thing. Just look how they shut down the evil NY Post story at just the right time (October 2020). Section 230 laws should not apply to them, they are just protecting the public from people crying fire. The great threat of this original post happens 1000's of times a day. Certain people in charge decide which become topics for the public.
