A couple of months ago, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg testified before Congress that Facebook is a “politically neutral” platform.
Charlene just did a breaking news interview with Facebook Insider Zach McElroy that sheds serious doubts on Zuckerberg’s honesty.
While at Facebook, McElroy recorded Facebook content moderators bragging about deleting posts and comments that supported President Donald Trump and conservative causes. One comment moderator actually admitted that Facebook is “very anti-MAGA.”
Another content moderator was asked if she deleted every Republican item that came up on her queue, she said: “Yes! I don’t give no f*cks, I’ll delete it.” The same moderator said she does not take down anti-Trump content, even if it does violate policy.
This is vastly different than what Zuckerberg told Congress.
You see, if Zuckerberg lied to Congress, not only is HE in hot water, but Facebook itself is also in hot water! Social media platforms (like Facebook) are protected by Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, because unlike traditional publishers they are not meant to actively edit content.
However, if Facebook is actively editing content (which they CLEARLY ARE), then they are not protected!
