Media Ignoring a MAJOR Part of the Facebook Scandal

The liberal media are all over one part of the Facebook scandal story – and ignoring another. Generally, media have covered the accusations that the social media site is censoring conservative news and sources from their trending news feed. Coincidentally, this is also the part of the Facebook story affecting the media.

Potentially a bigger scandal (because it affects more people) is the accusation that Facebook censors individual member pages, blogs, smaller media outlets, and discussion groups reflecting a conservative point of view. Sometimes, the sites are shut down, sometimes they are simply threatened into silence.

  • Why would Facebook establish and follow standards?
    That would only hamper their mission.

    • I stay away from it.

      I haven’t done facebook for eight years.
      I like disqus, though.

      • It’s ironic. Everybody is worried about being blocked by facebook. I’ve taken the opposite approach — I block facebook from me! (And twitbrain as well as oggle etc. — totally blocked from my system)

        Although I suppose if you’re involved in social media reporting it must be troubling.
