Well, well, well.
Facebook has often been accused of being left-wing and now it’s revealed that right-wing websites are being deliberately suppressed.
Last month, he claimed that Facebook will not be influencing the 2016 election after it was revealed in a company poll that Facebook employees felt they had a responsibility to prevent a Donald Trump presidency.
Now a former Facebook curator of the site’s trending news section has revealed that the company purposely suppresses conservative websites.
Isn’t that horrible?
The curator explained that they were “told to select articles from a list of preferred media outlets that included sites like the New York Times, Time, Variety, and other traditional outlets. They would regularly avoid sites like World Star Hip Hop, The Blaze, and Breitbart, but were never explicitly told to suppress those outlets.”
It was also revealed that the ‘trending news’ section was run by people who previously worked at MSNBC and The Guardian.
According to Gizmodo, former team members had the ability to choose what news stories would be trending and what news sites each topic links to.
So, they feel a moral responsibility to shove conservatism to the trash heap of history? How will this play out in the Presidential election?
