Facebook denies allegations as ex-employees blow the whistle

Liberals Celebrate Reports of Facebook Blacklisting Conservative News

Liberals across social media celebrated Monday after former Facebook contractors accused the website of blacklisting conservative news sites.

According to Gizmodo writer Michael Nunez, contractors tasked with running the site’s “trending news” section say they “routinely suppressed news stories of interest to conservative readers…”

Not only did the “news curators” suppress topics such as the IRS and Lois Lerner, Rand Paul and CPAC, but boosted reports on the Black Lives Matter movement despite it failing to trend organically.

As noted by many, although Facebook as a private corporation is permitted to highlight news as it pleases, the website’s practices have been viewed as immoral given their alleged role as a non-bias source for news. If Facebook is picking and choosing which stories appear in its “trending news” section, then the feature is based entirely on deception instead of being user-generated.

“It wasn’t trending news at all,” one former curator said. “It was an opinion.”

Upon learning of the alleged practices, liberals on Gizmodo’s Facebook page immediately applauded the social media giant for removing opinions they deemed unworthy – unsurprisingly labeling all other opinions as “hate” and “racism.”


Many, including some ideologically-consistent liberals, immediately noticed and decried the widespread support for Facebook’s alleged actions.

After the story quickly became national news, Facebook denied the allegations in a statement to the media.

“We take allegations of bias very seriously. Facebook is a platform for people and perspectives from across the political spectrum. Trending Topics shows you the popular topics and hashtags that are being talked about on Facebook. There are rigorous guidelines in place for the review team to ensure consistency and neutrality. These guidelines do not permit the suppression of political perspectives. Nor do they permit the prioritization of one viewpoint over another or one news outlet over another. These guidelines do not prohibit any news outlet from appearing in Trending Topics.”

"There is no Left or Right. There is only Tyranny and Freedom."

Just look at us. Everything is backwards, everything is upside down. Doctors destroy health, lawyers destroy justice, psychiatrists destroy minds, scientists destroy truth, major media destroys information, religions destroy spirituality and governments destroy freedom.

If the freedom of speech is taken away, then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter.

The United States has been declared under martial law. All constitutional rights have been suspended. Anyone interfering with the collection of urine samples will be shot. Anyone failing to attend morning school prayer will be shot. The number one enemy of progress is questions. National security is more important than individual rights. Sports broadcasts will proceed as scheduled. Shut up, be happy, obey all orders without question. At last everything is done for you.
