We've known for years now that Facebook has been censoring conservatives and conservative content providers as well.
Today, it's like they're not even trying to hide it anymore. They're basically saying, "Yeah, we're doing it. Screw you. What are you going to do about it?"
Well, now new details about Facebook's censorship have emerged and it's all been a part of a secret plan. It's on the same level as shadowbanning which social media networks deny, but we know that it's true.
They are purposely censoring conservative content and we've known this for years. Finally, we're getting more proof of it.
This "emergency change" to their algorithm has resulted in a systematic suppression of conservative media by ranking them lower than the liberal media outlets.
According to The Daily Wire,
In the aftermath of the election, the social media giant initiated some of its “break glass” plans to curb what it deemed as misinformation circulating on its platform, according to The New York Times. The plans reportedly involved changing how the platform allows articles from certain outlets and posts from certain pages to spread.
Facebook employees found that after the election, news stories from right-leaning outlets and pages on instances of voter fraud, miscounted ballots, and other election irregularities, mistakes, and misconduct were some of the most popular articles on the platform. As the Times frames it, “President Trump was already casting the election as rigged, and stories from right-wing media outlets with false and misleading claims about discarded ballots, miscounted votes and skewed tallies were among the most popular news stories on the platform.”
To combat the spread of such stories, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg agreed to change how his social media site promotes and suppresses certain news articles and posts in users’ news feeds.
One Facebook spokesman said, “There are tensions in virtually every product decision we make and we’ve developed a companywide framework called ‘Better Decisions’ to ensure we make our decisions accurately, and that our goals are directly connected to delivering the best possible experiences for people.”
That's not true. If you're censoring conservatives media and conservative content, you're not creating the best experiences. You're creating a propaganda machine much like we've seen in communist countries.
Now you know why people like are heading over to Parler and MeWe and working toward abandoning Facebook and Twitter.
