Diamond and Silk are set to testify in front of Congress Thursday over Facebook’s censorship of conservatives and what do you know–Facebook will be a no-show.
Facebook will not be attending a hearing in front of the House Judiciary Committee Thursday where Diamond and Silk were gearing up to confront the social media giant for labeling them “unsafe for the community,” and using algorithms to block their content.
Google and Twitter were also invited to the hearing, however; it is unclear if they decided to take the cowardly way out like Zuckerberg did.
Axios reported a spokesman for Facebook said, “We look forward to a continuing dialogue with members of the Committee about Facebook’s strong commitment to being a platform for all voices and ideas,”
Rep. Marsha Blackburn is also expected to speak on the panel. Twitter previously blocked her pro-life campaign.
Tech Giants Google and Facebook are currently purging conservative content from Facebook and YouTube — They are hiding conservative stories on Google — They are shadow-banning conservative news on all social media.
In February Facebook launched a new algorithm to ensure that conservative news would not spread on the social media platform.
Last Tuesday Senator Ted Cruz blasted Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg on the company’s censorship of conservative news.
Mark Zuckerberg obfuscated and refused to admit conservatives were being crushed by their algorithms.
Editor’s note: The House Judiciary Committee hearing is scheduled for Thursday.
