In a stunning investigation by tech site Gizmodo, it’s been discovered that the incredibly popular social media platform Facebook is purposely shutting down conservative voices and helping out liberal narratives. This is unbelievable.
The investigation included actual employees admitting how they edited out conservative stories from the social media timeline.
“Depending on who was on shift, things would be blacklisted or trending,” said the former curator. This individual asked to remain anonymous, citing fear of retribution from the company. The former curator is politically conservative, one of a very small handful of curators with such views on the trending team. “I’d come on shift and I’d discover that CPAC or Mitt Romney or Glenn Beck or popular conservative topics wouldn’t be trending because either the curator didn’t recognize the news topic or it was like they had a bias against Ted Cruz.”
The former curator was so troubled by the omissions that they kept a running log of them at the time; this individual provided the notes to Gizmodo. Among the deep-sixed or suppressed topics on the list: former IRS official Lois Lerner, who was accused by Republicans of inappropriately scrutinizing conservative groups; Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker; popular conservative news aggregator the Drudge Report; Chris Kyle, the former Navy SEAL who was murdered in 2013; and former Fox News contributor Steven Crowder. “I believe it had a chilling effect on conservative news,” the former curator said.
Incredible. While this is no surprise to many of us who have suspected it of being true, it’s important to have it confirmed for those that call us crazy conspiracy theorists.
And this could make an enormous difference. There are more than a BILLION people on Facebook – about one seventh of the entire population of Earth. Do you think their shutting down conservative voices might change some minds towards left-wing liberalism?
You’d have to be an idiot to think otherwise.
