Facebook Admits Their 3rd-Party “Fact Checks” Are “Protected Opinions” But Very Effective in Shutting Down Conservative Content on Their Platform

For years, starting after the 2016 election of Donald J. Trump as US President, Facebook has targeted The Gateway Pundit and other top conservative outlets.

Facebook hired third-party “fact-checkers” around three years ago to eliminate conservative content on the platform.

These so-called fact-checkers were extremely effective.

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.

A report in October 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 its history and culture you will eventually have your account targeted, censored or shut down.

The WSJ report revealed the bias 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 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. They are creating social media scores on Americans to limit their influence online. This is already happening in America today. The Republican party is unwilling to take action.

But this week Facebook admitted in court that their fake fact-checkers are actually “protected opinions” used by the company to limit speech.

Facebook is using these frauds to target conservative speech. They are often wrong. What a wonderful gift to the Democrat Party!
