A new report from Project Veritas proves undoubtedly that Facebook has a liberal bias. It also proves Facebook election interference in the 2020 presidential race. The shocking report includes documents, screenshots of internal conversations, and video footage of content moderators discussing their eagerness to censor Trump supporters.
One moderator said she deletes every Republican post she finds.
“Yes! I don’t give no fucks. I’ll delete it,” she said, adding that she allows anti-Trump content to remain online even when it violates Facebook’s policies. “You gotta take it down, but I leave it up…If you see something that’s not supposed to be up, it’s probably me.”
Another content moderator, Zach McElroy, said that up to 80% of posts selected for review by the moderators come from “Republican” pages. A third moderator, Lara Kontakos, says she deletes anyone “wearing a MAGA hat.”
Not surprisingly, the Facebook fired the employee who shared the internal documents with Project Veritas for participating in a so-called ‘conservative bias stunt.’
“The claims she is making validate her agenda and ignore the processes we have in place to ensure Facebook remains a platform to give people a voice, regardless of their political ideology,” said a company spokesman.
This defense is laughable.
For years, Facebook and other Big Tech companies have displayed a clear political bias. They promote liberal content and censor conservative content. As we explained in a previous article (read more here), the site regularly silences conservative voices. But they allow dangerous groups such as “Blue Liver Murder” to remain online.
In October, Chinese content moderators working for Facebook admitted to “down-ranking” conservative content (read more here).
During the 2020 election, Facebook and Twitter censored unflattering news articles about Hunter Biden and suspended the accounts of individuals who shared these articles. At the same time, the site was slapping fact-check warnings on posts from the sitting president.
“We have a system that is able to freeze commenting on threads in cases where our systems are detecting…hate speech or violence in the comments,” explains Guy Rosen, Facebook’s Vice President of Integrity. “These are all things we’ve built over the past three, four years as part of investments into the integrity space. Our efforts to protect the election.“
When the partisan bickering reached a head on January 6th, 2021, Facebook responded by permanently banning President Donald Trump – a historic move that has been criticized by officials throughout the world.
As noted by One America News Network, Facebook’s blatant support for Joe Biden could be tied to the expectation that he will do nothing to break up Big Tech’s monopoly on digital services in this country. Facebook executives have responded to criticism by pointing out that there are no laws preventing online censorship by social media companies.
