“Facebook dislikes conservatives….”

Facebook Dislikes Conservatives, and That’s OK

by Megan McArdle  at Bloomberg:

“It appears that stories in Facebook’s trending news module weren’t always quite as trending as they seemed. Stories that interested conservative readers on topics like CPAC and Mitt Romney were suppressed, while stories about Syria and Black Lives Matter were artificially injected into the stream. This wasn’t corporate policy so much as the editorial decisions of young staffers who leaned liberal, and chose stories accordingly.

As you can imagine, this created quite a stir among conservatives, and now Senate Commerce Committee Chairman John Thune has sent a letter to Facebook asking questions about how these decisions were made. Conservative media figures like National Review’s Charles Cooke and the Washington Examiner’s Phil Klein have opined that the senator should lay off.

Wait. What?

It shouldn’t be so surprising. Principled conservatives generally believe that the government should restrain itself from interfering with corporate operations, and both men are deeply principled.

But we are headed for a clash of principles on the liberal side. On the one hand, the principle that the media must be free from government interference. (This principle is, of course, most deeply cherished by liberals who happen to be employed by the media, but it is a longstanding and widespread principle elsewhere on the left.) On the other hand, the principle that corporations that have acquired a great deal of market power must not be allowed to abuse that power, even inadvertently.

Facebook has indeed acquired a great deal of power. It dominates the news diet of millennials, and is becoming more and more important for the rest of us. Nor is it easy to argue that this market power somehow doesn’t matter as much as, say, Visa and MasterCard’s control of the credit card interchange market.

As Orwell noted in “1984”: “Who controls the past controls the future; who controls the present controls the past.” He was speaking, of course, about control of written history, of what we know to have happened — and thereby how we allocate our political support. It is not a small matter if the company that is coming to be the nation’s most significant source of news skews that news toward its own political preferences. In fact, it’s just a tiny bit chilling. Government censorship is, of course, terrible. But censorship by a small group of unelected young people is not all that much more appealing…….”   please read on:

(Despite the merit of this article’s content, while  remembering that in a free society government should NOT interfere with any non-violent public organization to express the tenets of its followers, what happens when a nation hires or pressures to hire only leftists and their  communists, socialists, black racists, feminists, and fascists tribes to the nation’s university and private college. and public school staffs from coast to coast?

How does our once freer America  confront  today’s leftist dogmatists who control the nation’s learning and unlearning  systems almost throughout the country, control the tenor or world of the nation’s news, by opening  our country’s  doors to the world’s freedom-loving  uninitiated  to enter the country to rape, pillage and burn and vote for leftist incumbents to secure its dictatorship…..all at the American working man’s expense?)
