Project Veritas on Monday released video of two Facebook insiders blowing the whistle on the social media giant’s effort to secretly censor Covid vaccine concerns on a global scale.
The documents obtained by Project Veritas show Facebook’s efforts to curb “vaccine hesitancy” or “VH” in comments.
One whistleblower told James O’Keefe that Facebook uses classifiers in their algorithms to determine certain content, to be what they call “vaccine hesitant” (screenshot below) without the users knowledge.
“They assign a score to these comments that’s called the VH score, the “vaccine hesitancy” score,” the whistleblower said. “And then based on that score will demote or leave the comment alone depending on the content within the comment.”
The whistleblower, Morgan Kahmann, a data center technician for Facebook, revealed himself and went on the record after the social media company suspended him.
“I was at work and I got a message from my supervisor out of the blue basically saying, ‘Go ahead and wrap up your area and clean up your stuff, gather your personal belongings and meet me in a meeting room in the lobby of the building,’” Kahmann told James O’Keefe in a video released on Thursday. “They’re basically going to have me meet with the investigative team and grill me on the whole situation.”
“To me [getting fired] far outweighs that because it’s about more than me. It’s about really everyone in the world,” Kahmann said.
