The bulldog investigators at Project Veritas have another bombshell expose up on their website. When last we heard from them they were proving that Twitter was “shadow banning” conservatives and simultaneously promoting leftists. Now, they’ve uncovered some very ugly malfeasance at Facebook.
In their latest exposé, they’ve finally offered proof that Facebook is evil and that they’re out to destroy conservative free speech.
In an interview with a former Facebook insider who was responsible for content review in Facebook’s Intellectual Property Department, we discover that Facebook was purposely “demoting” content that they deemed was “bad.” But wait… there’s more!
a. Conservative Facebook Page Livestreams were “deboosted,” without page owners being notified.
b. Facebook classified users as Trolls based on the words they used and then punished them by limiting their bandwidth and blocking their comments.
c. Facebook Engineers argued that “‘hateful’ content is coming from right-leaning sites.”
d. Facebook had “Special features” triggered before “important elections” in an effort to put their thumbs on the election scales.
e. We already know that Facebook categorizes much mainstream conservative speech as “hate speech,” but they argued that everything one conservative commentator says is “hate speech.”
Here’s more from Project Veritas:
Project Veritas has obtained and published documents and presentation materials from a former Facebook insider. This information describes how Facebook engineers plan and go about policing political speech. Screenshots from a Facebook workstation show the specific technical actions taken against political figures, as well as “[e]xisting strategies” taken to combat political speech.
Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe said that to expose dishonesty and censorship in big tech companies, he will be relying upon more insiders, informants and leakers in the future:
