Facebook admits rogue employees may have shown bias against conservatives

The online giant denied that it’s shown “systematic political bias,” but admitted employees played a bigger role than previously acknowledged in determining what news is highlighted in the trending topics section.

This is known as The IRS Defense, or The Obama Defense, or The Hillary Defense, or…

    They all live in a bubble where they really believe that anything conservative is racist and offensive.

    • Reader

  • Rogue employees? Sure, that’s the ticket.

  • Jaedo Drax

    They are just doing damage control, which is probably going to blow up in their face, since Crowder has sued for discovery in Texas.

    When in doubt, disavow. Taking personal responsibility is not in the Fakebook DNA.
