Over the past few years, Facebook has taken step after step to censor conservatives and Christians. Some of my associates have had posts removed and even had their accounts suspended because they dared post the truth about Hillary Clinton or the dangers of Islamic extremists. One person posted an article that supported Christian teaching about homosexuality and the person ended up having their account suspended by Facebook because the post was offensive. Posts telling the truth about Hillary were deemed offensive, while others blasted Donald Trump and other Republicans and they were allowed to remain posted and active.
Facebook has yet again rolled out some new policy changes that are clearly designed to further censor conservatives and prevent them from making revenue from ads on Facebook.
(Breitbart) – Facebook has rolled out yet another change to its newsfeed, which they say will give greater visibility to posts from “friends and family.” The subtext is that it will decrease visibility to pages run by publishers and news sites, escalating the social media giant’s running battle with the publishing industry.
The influence of Facebook over the success or failure of publishers and news sites has expanded astronomically over the past few years. Consider this: at the inauguration of President Trump, Fox News’ coverage attracted the most viewers on cable news – an average of 8.8 million. But their Facebook video of the same event attracted almost twice that number: 16 million. In 2017, the most-shared news video on the platform was viewed no fewer than 67 million times. Facebook now has the power to make or break publishers.
If the latest newsfeed change is anything to go by, they’re now keen on breaking them. The change is going to slow the spread of content from all media outlets across Facebook, in a move that The Hill has speculated may be due to the pressure the platform is under to stop the flow of “fake news.” Given that attempts to target individual publishers can lead to charges of political bias, something which in the past almost led to a Senate-led investigation of Facebook, the platform might be trying to get around the problem by diminishing the reach of all publishers equally…
The only reason Facebook complained about political ads purchased by Russians was because they were pro-Trump. Chances are had the ads been pro-Clinton, that we would never have heard that they were paid for by Russians. Sadly, most of the popular social media sites have become extremely liberal and anti-truth, anti-Trump, anti-conservative, anti-Christian and anti-America.
