In another sign of the liberal bent of the big time social media giants it was reported that Facebook blocked links to the incendiary trove of hacked DNC emails that have rocked the Democrats as they prepare for Queen Hillary’s coronation ball. It wouldn’t be the first time that Mark Zuckerberg’s empire has been caught suppressing news that is harmful to the Dems, the social network was embroiled in a controversy that it was censoring conservatives only a few short months ago.
The New York Post reports that “Facebook admits to blocking Wikileaks links in DNC email hack”:
Facebook admitted Sunday that it had blocked links to the Wikileaks trove of emails hacked from the Democratic National Committee.
The WikiLeaks allegation followed a firestorm of controversy that erupted earlier this year when former Facebook workers admitted routinely suppressing conservative news.
In response to the WikiLeaks charge, another Twitter user, @SwiftOnSecurity, chimed in that “Facebook has an automated system for detecting spam/malicious links, that sometimes have false positives,” which prompted a response from the company’s chief security officer.
“It’s been fixed,” Facebook CSO Alex Stamos tweeted.
Facebook didn’t immediately return a request for comment.
It was only last week that Twitter banned Breitbart’s Milo Yiannopoulos for being mean to Leslie Jones, the whining star of the feminist Ghostbusters box office flop. Silicon Valley is certainly showing it’s liberal bias and fears that a Trump presidency would place restrictions on all of those H1-B visas that allow for foreign workers to block Americans from getting high-paying tech jobs. Incidentally, Mr. Zuckerberg just happens to be a huge proponent of the visas and doesn’t seem to be above using his corporation to put a thumb on the scale for Mrs. Clinton and her pro-immigration policies.
