Everyone has a right to free speech.
The media’s job is to distribute information without bias or slant, so the individual can make his or her own decisions.
In other words, Americans have a right to speak, and to hear others speak without suppression or censorship. This is a cornerstone of our country.
And yet, it appears one of our previous presidents and a social media kingpin only wanted you to hear one side of the story, thereby crushing your Constitutional rights.
Facebook CEO and Chairman Mark Zuckerberg was on the on seat in front of Congress yesterday, and he faced a barrage of questions.
One of those questions involved Facebook’s long-suspected bias toward liberal news and suppression of conservative news.
Outspoken Rep. Steve Scalise dropped a bomb by quoting a member of the Obama digital team during Barack’s presidential run:
“One of the lead digital heads of the Obama campaign said recently ‘Facebook was surprised we were able to suck out the whole social graph, but they didn’t stop us once they realized that was what we were doing.’”
‘They came to office in the days following election recruiting and were very candid that they allowed us to do things they wouldn’t have allowed someone else to do because they were on our side.’
What would she mean by they–Facebook were on our side?”
Zuckerberg said the Obama cohort was lying in this scenario, and that Facebook “didn’t allow the Obama campaign to do anything that any developer on the platform wouldn’t have otherwise been able to do.”
But nobody is buying it.
Given the evidence, it seems painfully obvious that conservative publishers have been getting the short end of the stick on Facebook, while liberal publishers have thrived.
The bottom line is that one of Obama’s own people fessed up, and now America knows the truth:
When Barack Obama was running for the most important office in the land, one of the biggest distributors of information on the planet was backing him.
And at the same time, we can assume they were working together to crush the opposition.
Oh yes, Facebook is “free,” all right. But they tell you the way it is, not the other way around. And Zuck’s liberal fascist army has finally been exposed!
