WSJ Report Reveals Facebook Employees Eager to Shut Down Conservative Content — As Gateway Pundit Has Been Reporting for Years

In November 2016 The Gateway Pundit was ranked in the top four of influential conservative outlets during the 2016 election.
In January 2017 Facebook, Google and Twitter waged a campaign to take away our social media traffic.

And they did.

The targeting of conservative media outlets by Facebook was so severe that The Gateway Pundit’s Jim Hoft spoke to Congress in 2018 on the crisis.

Now this…
A new report at The Wall Street Journal confirms the continued Facebook bias against conservative Americans. Regardless of whether you have a large website like The Gateway Pundit or a small personal page, if you report favorably for President Trump or American Greatness you will eventually have your account targeted, censored or shut down.

The WSJ report reveals the nuttiness of the Facebook staff — apparently correctly reporting that BLM was destroying the Minneapolis business district triggered the young loons on staff. The truth is hate speech to these tender Marxists.

Facebook has deleted most of the conservative content from its pages and news platforms. Few options remain. Facebook will flag conservative articles like those from The Gateway Pundit as fake news only to have them confirmed as accurate in a few days, weeks or months.

Facebook warns people away from our page. They do not want conservatives on their platform.

Facebook is out to change America into a communist system like China where everyone earns a social media score. This is already happening in America today. The Republican party is unwilling to take action.

Keach Haley and Jeff Horwitz at The Wall Street Journal reported:

In June 2020, when America was rocked by protests over the death of George Floyd at the hands of a Minneapolis police officer, a Facebook employee posted a message on the company’s racial-justice chat board: “Get Breitbart out of News Tab.”

News Tab is a feature that aggregates and promotes articles from various publishers, chosen by Facebook FB, 0.14%. The employee’s message included screenshots of headlines on Breitbart’s website, such as “Minneapolis Mayhem: Riots in Masks,” “Massive Looting, Buildings in Flames, Bonfires!” and “BLM Protesters Pummel Police Cars on 101.”

The employee said they were “emblematic of a concerted effort at Breitbart and similarly hyperpartisan sources (none of which belong in News Tab) to paint Black Americans and Black-led movements in a very negative way,” according to written conversations on Facebook’s office communication system reviewed by The Wall Street Journal. Many other employees chimed in to agree.

In the same chat, a company researcher said any steps aimed at removing Breitbart—a right-wing publisher popular with supporters of former President Donald Trump —could face roadblocks internally because of the potential political blowback. “At best, it would be a very difficult policy discussion,” the researcher said.

Facebook chose to keep Breitbart on News Tab.
