Dear President Trump, Facebook Is Already Eliminating Conservative Content — PLEASE Don’t Give Them Any Ideas
On Tuesday morning President Trump threatened the liberal mainstream media after Media Research Center released its latest study that found that 91% of the national mainstream reports on the Trump administration are negative.
President Trump tweeted this threat to the liberal media.
The Fake News is working overtime. Just reported that, despite the tremendous success we are having with the economy & all things else, 91% of the Network News about me is negative (Fake). Why do we work so hard in working with the media when it is corrupt? Take away credentials?

Matt Drudge, the creator and editor of the infamous Drudge Report, quickly chimed in to warn the president of his “licensing” idea — which is a liberal’s wet dream.
Matt Drudge is right.
We already have blacklisting and censorship of conservative publishers.
It’s called Facebook.
Since the 2016 election Facebook has been cracking down on conservative and pro-Trump content.
Top conservative websites have seen a stunning drop in their Facebook traffic.
This was no accident. This was the plan.
In January 2017, Facebook began making algorithm changes to make sure conservative news was no longer so influential. The Gateway Pundit Facebook traffic has consistently decreased with each algorithm change.
A March 2018 study by The Outline organization found conservative publishers were hit the hardest by Facebook algorithm changes. The study also showed that The Gateway Pundit was hit the hardest.
In March 2018 Western Journal also published a study that found conservative publishers were hit the hardest by the recent Facebook algorithm changes. The report found that liberal publishers actually saw a 2 percent increase in traffic. Conservative publishers lost an average of 14 percent in traffic.
Facebook official Campbell Brown, a former anchor on NBC and CNN, told attendees at a recent technology and publishing conference that Facebook would be censoring news publishers based on its own internal biases. And they did.
Top Conservative voices have been decimated since the 2016 election.
In April Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg announced that Facebook will ramp up its censorship of “controversial” political content.
The announcement was made to a group of liberal publishers and the anti-Trump Wall Street Journal.
Whenever the left says “controversial” news, “fake” news or “hate speech” they are talking about conservative content.
Facebook is determined to shut out conservative pro-Trump voices.
