As reported earlier today, tech site Gizmodo broke the story of former Facebook employees revealing that the company intentionally and regularly censored conservative news stories on it’s social media site. The confirmation of long speculated rumors about Facebook’s anti-conservative bias should’ve been a major news story but it was only covered by CNN and Fox News Channel. All three networks ignored the story on Monday night’s evening news broadcast.
In case you were wondering what was more important than this story, ABC’s World News Tonight Monday spent an entire segment on a “new weapon against anti-aging” asking, “Have scientists found face-lift in a bottle?”
At least cable news covered the story. As seen in the partial video clip below, CNN’s Jake Tapper did a full report on the story as well as Fox News Channel’s Greta Van Susteren and Bret Baier.
The full transcript from the segment on The Lead with Jake Tapper May 9 follows.
Does anyone find this article shocking?
The IRS targeting conservative groups, the John Doe investigations in Wisconsin targeting conservative groups, the charges filed against the whistle blower for selling baby parts at PP, the whisle blower at the VA in Wisconsin put on administrative leave. (Russ Feingold (D) ignored multiple memos on the subject)
Now the news outlets wont play the commercial about it as Feingold want back into the Washington DC scene.
The list goes on and on.
Let’s see… liberal media suppresses a story about liberal media suppressing conservative stories. Gosh.
So, I have a question… if the liberal ideology is so wonderful and beneficial to all, why is it that the left must suppress any alternative viewpoint? It would seem that an open and honest comparison to mean old conservatism would only emphasize how beautiful and superior liberalism truly is.
As I said, just wondering.
