    SNIP Zuckerberg in recent weeks has made a flurry of public and private appearances to make the case for his company and stave off anger from policymakers on both sides of the aisle. From livestreaming a Q&A with Facebook staff to meeting with GOP lawmakers and conservative pundits, Zuckerberg has been making the rounds, a sharp break from his company's normal strategy of deploying other high-level executives in moments of crisis. BIG SNIP But the meetings with conservatives have drawn criticism from some quarters. “They’ve obviously proven very sensitive to conservative criticism and so I think it’s a part of...

    THERE are certain actions which are borne out of power politics, while others emerge from ideological fixations. Still yet, some are combinations thereof. Said duality is the driving force behind Chancellor Merkel’s rule – her leadership, for almost 15 years, reflects as much. Not only that, as the head of Germany, the 4th largest economy in the world, the heft she wields across Europe (and beyond) is enormous. SO much so, even socialist-leaning and globalist-driven Zuckerberg (in total control of Facebook, the largest social media site on the planet and deemed the world’s most dangerous censor – who is more...

    Massachusetts senator and presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren continued her campaign against Facebook on Sunday, one day after she posted false advertisements to Facebook on Saturday to see if she could prove to voters that the social media platform values profit over facts. "Facebook holds incredible power to affect elections and our national debate. They’ve decided to let political figures lie to you -- even about Facebook itself -- while their executives and their investors get even richer off the ads containing these lies," Warren wrote in a series of Twitter posts Saturday criticizing Facebook and its founder, Mark Zuckerberg.

    The left is trying to steer Facebook into doing more censorship. Sen. Ron Wyden, (D-OR) proclaimed that Facebook’s CEO Mark Zuckerberg should face dire consequences for how he has chosen to run the platform. However, he also calls for more censorship of the internet as a whole. Wyden also hammered the First Amendment, saying that “A lot of people don't realize the First Amendment is what creates the biggest opportunity for hate speech.” He then noted by contrast that Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act “provides an opportunity to address hate speech without the bad guys going off to...

    About 40 state attorneys general will participate in an antitrust investigation of Facebook led by New York Attorney General Letitia James (D), The Washington Post reported on Monday, citing three people familiar with the matter. In September, James had announced an investigation with seven other states and the District of Columbia into whether the social media giant has “endangered consumer data, reduced the quality of consumers’ choices, or increased the price of advertising.” The three people who spoke to the Post said the larger inquiry is still confidential, and that New York could enlist further states before the probe is...

    Ever since I began my research on birth control side effects and health consequences for my book In the Name of the Pill, I have been shocked to learn how many women have not been properly warned about the real risks involved with taking factory-made steroids. A colleague of mine who I discuss these issues with said he often gets into discussions with women about these health risks, and I noticed that many of the conversations he was telling me about had happened online. So I couldn’t help but ask him, “How are you meeting so many women online?” He...

    If you give a flight attendant a candy bar, you'll likely score a free drink, but for one Southwest passenger, even a king-sized Snickers probably wouldn't have earned him a complementary whiskey soda. A Southwest flight attendant who recently noticed a passenger wearing a Trump shirt vented her frustrations on social media. The shirt read "Trump 45" and "Suck it up Buttercup." "Someone did NOT get my most Positively Outrageous Service today on my flight ... #notgoingtosuckitup #dumpTrump #eeew," wrote the flight attendant.

    Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, who is worth an estimated $69 billion, stated in a recent internal Q&A that he sympathizes with Bernie Sanders’ view on billionaires, and agrees that “no one deserves to have that much money.” CNBC reports that during a livestreamed employee Q&A call this week, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg discussed a number of topics including politics. Zuckerberg was asked to respond to Senator Bernie Sanders’s comment that billionaires should not exist, and gave a surprising answer given that Zuckerberg himself is worth $69 billion. “I understand where he’s coming from,” Zuckerberg said. “I don’t know that I...

    Comedian Terrence K. Williams of “The Deplorables” comedy troupe, pleaded for help Friday amidst fears Twitter was targeting his account for his support of President Trump. A popular blue check conservative with over 600,000 followers, Williams received a legal warning from Twitter right before he was to go to the White House’s “Young Black Leadership Summit.” A little after 2pm on October 4, Williams tweeted, “TWITTERS LEGAL TEAM CONTACTED ME ON THE DAY I GO TO THE WHITE HOUSE!

    Jihad Watch ^ | September 28th 2019 | Robert Spencer
    The Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) sent out a press release last Wednesday demanding that Twitter suspend its most important account: that of President Trump. Because Trump has repeatedly enraged Leftists by going over the heads of the establishment media and talking directly to the American people through his tweets, there are no doubt a large number of tweets that have made Leftists want him gone from Twitter forever. But the one that sent CAIR over the edge committed the sin that is absolutely, finally, unanswerably unpardonable: Trump had the audacity to criticize that sacred cow of all sacred...

    The company has now officially started a test that will remove public visibility of Like, reaction and video view counts from people's posts and ads across Facebook. This is going to be happening only in Australia, though, and Facebook told Engadget it has not decided whether the test will expand to other places in the future. If you're a Facebook user in Australia, this means that while your friends and family will still be able to like and add emoji reactions to your posts, they won't be able to see how many others interacted with it. The same goes if...

    Facebook on Tuesday released its plans for the new board previously likened to a “Supreme Court” that can overturn the company’s own content moderation decisions.The new “Oversight Board” will govern appeals from Facebook users and questions from the company itself. The board will eventually consist of 40 members with three-year terms drawn from a diverse array of backgrounds, according to Facebook. Panels of five members will deliberate on cases it chooses to take. A minimum of 11 members will be required for the board to function. Facebook said in a press release it plans to have the board in place...

    The Senate Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee Wednesday held a hearing on “Violence, Extremism and Digital Responsibility,” with the heads of three of America’s largest social media titans – Google, Facebook, and Twitter – as well as a representative from the far-left Anti-Defamation League (ADL). What came out of the hearing was downright disturbing: there is a general consensus among our tech overlords that law enforcement needs to be more involved in policing the activities of social media users. In other words, instead of the figurative speech police, which operates with impunity and bans conservatives on social media for expressing...

    Facebook is being sued after branding independent journalist Laura Loomer a “dangerous individual,” and the social media giant has now admitted in a court filing that it is in fact a publisher. Facebook’s new motion in its case against Loomer states, “to the extent Ms. Loomer’s claim targets Facebook’s decision to deactivate her accounts, it is also deficient. Under well-established law, neither Facebook nor any other publisher can be liable for failing to publish someone else’s message.” Loomer is suing Facebook after the Big Tech giant defamed her as “a dangerous individual trafficking in hate,” and banned her and her...

    Angel Mom Mary Ann Mendoza, who heads the Angel Families organization, has had her posts raising awareness about illegal immigrant crime removed from Facebook as “hate speech.” Mendoza’s son, 32-year-old police officer Brandon Mendoza, was killed in May 2014 by a drunk illegal alien who was driving the wrong way down a highway in Mesa, Arizona. This week, Mendoza had two of her Facebook posts from her personal page removed, with the tech platform claiming that she had violated the “Community Standards on hate speech.” The posts raised awareness about illegal immigrant crime and its impact on Americans. One post...

    Facebook says it has sanctioned the page of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu because of a violation of the company’s hate speech policy. Facebook said on Thursday that the social network had suspended for 24 hours the page’s bot, or automated chat function. The page had called on voters to prevent the establishment of a government composed of “Arabs who want to destroy us all — women, children and men.” The post sparked uproar by opposition politicians.

    The White House is asking Americans to share their personal stories of censorship and bias on social media. Predictably, liberals don’t seem interested in believing these victims. The appeal was announced on Wednesday and includes a tool to monitor Big Tech censorship. This is welcome news for conservatives and anyone concerned about the trend of censorship by the giant social media and search engine companies. It’s proof positive that Donald Trump is very serious about stopping the suppression of conservative speech on social media, as he alluded to in a recent tweet, when he said, “Social Media & Fake News...

    The biggest of the Big Tech companies are quickly positioning themselves as the internet’s thought police, threatening to stamp out one of America’s most cherished freedoms — the right to free speech. The internet has clearly evolved into the public square of the 21st century. Over the last couple of election cycles, it’s become the number one source for sharing and discussing political and social ideas. Unfortunately, Big Tech monsters like Google and Facebook have become nothing less than incubators for far-left liberal ideologies and are doing everything they can to eradicate conservative ideas and their proponents from the internet....

    Big Tech has a big bias problem. Social media platforms that once facilitated the free exchange of ideas and information are now actively seeking to silence and censor conservative opinions. This new Orwellian impulse that is taking over Big Tech is particularly problematic because social media websites, which are supposed to be safe spaces for all free speech, get special legal perks. Under Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, websites such as Facebook and Twitter are not treated as publishers of “information provided by another” — which would subject them to libel laws and other headaches publishers have to...
