Skip to comments.Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg Attacked by Left for Lacking Bias to Help Hillary Win
Posted on 11/14/2016 7:53:12 AM PST by Enlightened1
The Left is spitting mad that Donald Trump won the presidency. Rather than accept the vote of the people, progressives are lashing out at Facebook for not doing enough to stop the proliferation of what they call “fake news” about Hillary Clinton regarding Benghazi, handling of emails and the probability of her being indicted by the FBI.
Lashing out against Facebook got so intense that Zuckerberg in his keynote speech for Techonomy16 that opened the day after the election, responded that Facebook is always trying to improve the quality of the News Feed experience. But he also stated:
“Personally, I think the idea that fake news on Facebook, of which it’s a very small amount of the content, influenced the election in any way is a pretty crazy idea.”
Facebook has triumphed in casting its trending News Feed as the main-stream-media for the 21st Century. According to the Pew Research Center, 66 percent of Facebook’s 156.5 million U.S. users now get the majority of their daily news from the site.
The company suffered a major scandal in May, when a former journalist at News Feed, told the Gizmodo web site that he and other Facebook staff members routinely suppressed news stories of interest to conservative readers from the social network’s influential “trending” news feed section.

The list for blame-anyone-but-Hillary just keeps getting longer.
Poor widdle Zucker
And we all know that Zuckerberg’s main mission as CEO of Facebook is to keep the Left-wingers who use social media to coordinate their group-think happy.
FB shareholders understand this, I’m sure.
It’s a good sign. The left/”establishment” just doesn’t get it. When people are fed up with their propaganda, their answer is: more propaganda. The same thing is happening in Europe.
Zuck did plenty. If he’d done any more he would have wrecked his company.
There is no end to the demands from the left.
Farcebook wasn’t biased enough?
Leftists are insanely determined to shut down any discussion.
They should listen to this.
Are Facebook Ads a Waste of Money ?
progressives are lashing out at Facebook
Is that “Tolerance” thingy they are always screaming to us Angry White Conservatives about??
Now let’s remember...the Dems had this one in the bag - no need for any extra effort from anyone.
Self delusion can be a problem.
Can’t watch this too much. :D!!!
I find it hard to believe that anyone gets all their news from Facebook.
Depends on what your goals are. Also go in with a clearly defined budget. If you accidentally hit a wrong button or aren’t that familiar with how to do a behind the scenes cancellation (Although I have yet to see a cancellation button) you could get charged again for the same charge for the same length of time. The problem with Facebook is that there is no human help. You’re on you own to research through their ‘help’ links.
Celeb Twitter accounts were taken over and were posting the same anti-trump comments and pro clinton comments during the election. I do not know if the celebs knew or were afraid to complain or agreed with the mass propaganda.
Even when you are with the crazy liberals they are still against you. Under the Bus Zuck!
There was heavy censorship by Facebook of the right and its members, on top of the liberal digital mobs who flagged every conservative person and post as hate speech.
Trump supporter BLOCKED by Facebook for complaining about site’s censorship of right-wing activists
FB did a very good job of suppressing pro-Trump postings. I know because I would post and repost the same things hour after hour to keep them in front of peoples eyes. I lost a lot of so called friends, but it was my part. I found a lot of friends too by the way, and even convinced some Hillary supporters to swing away from the “Dark Side”.
These people are so weak and pathetic. America finally stood up and smacked them down. The REAL America thanks you all....
