Facebook Whistleblower: Workers Routinely Censor Independent and Conservative News

May 9, 2016

… As Gizmodo reported, a former journalist who worked in (the “trending news”) division “says that workers prevented stories about … conservative topics from appearing in the highly-influential section, even though they were originally trending among the site’s users.” …

Facebook “news curators,” as they are called, were reportedly told to “inject” certain topics into the trending feed — even if said items weren’t popular prior to that artificial inclusion.

Also unsurprisingly, the former curators claim they were instructed not to allow news pertaining to Facebook into the trending list …

Indeed, Facebook’s chokehold on the news has free press advocates worried — particularly since the company acts as a primary news source for millions of people. The realization it also actively muzzles valid news stories will only fuel long-held suspicions its algorithms are used as an excuse for censoring items it would prefer not be widely seen. …

If Orwell was right in 1984, saying “Who controls the past controls the future; who controls the present controls the past” — then the gargantuan social media platform might have the power to shape not only the news, but history itself. In an election year already fraught with controversy, hints we aren’t seeing topics of interest to every segment of political thought are much less than welcome news.
