CENSORSHIP: Facebook Will Ramp Up ‘News Suppression’ Ahead Of 2018 Midterms

Facebook’s founder Mark Zuckerberg has admitted that his social media platform will ramp up “news suppression” ahead of the 2018 midterm elections.  Although the term “news suppression” is being used, let’s call it what it is: censorship.

Zuckerberg will “dial up the intensity” of censorship in hopes that he can weaponize his social media platform to help elect leftists.  Zuckerberg stated this week that the social media firm has plans to further crack down on “fake news” (news liberals don’t like) on the platform via “suppression” of certain news publications.

BuzzFeed News reported that Zuckerberg revealed that Facebook has been gathering data on certain publications by asking consumers how they feel about certain publications and their trustworthiness.  Don’t be too shocked if YouTube and Twitter go ahead and do the very same thing.  We already know Google suppresses search results based on a leftist bias.

“We put [that data] into the system, and it is acting as a boost or a suppression, and we’re going to dial up the intensity of that over time. We feel like we have a responsibility to further [break] down polarization and find common ground, Zuckerberg stated according to Breitbart. The Facebook CEO also stated that the social media giant would be investing billions of dollars into human moderators to spot fake news on the platform as well as heavily investing in artificial intelligence. “We’re essentially going to be losing money on doing political ads,” stated Zuckerberg.

Alternative media’s warnings about Nazi-style censorship were met with criticism, doubt, and haughty derision in many mainstream media quarters, but as it turns out, those censored were not only correct, but the warnings were just the tip of the censorship iceberg. Investigative journalist Ben Swann noted in All News Pipeline, there is indeed a concerted effort by the Alt-Left social media giants to deep-six conservative, libertarian, and independent voices of liberty as part of an overall effort to silence their voices. –SHTFPlan

Facebook claims to have successfully prevented the spread of fake news on their platform during elections in both France and Alabama. Of course, that’s probably just because both of those elections went the way leftists wanted them to after censoring anything negative about the leftists while suppressing anything positive about the conservatives.  “We deployed AI tools that have taken down tens of thousands of accounts,” said Zuckerberg discussing the company’s role in those elections. With the 2018 midterm elections set to take place in November of this year, much focus will be placed on Facebook and their actions during the election.

Facebook met with a number of publications following their F8 conference in efforts to discuss the issue of fake news, it has yet to be reported however if any conservative publications were present at this meeting. BuzzFeed News reports that the publications present at the interview were: BuzzFeed News, the Information, Quartz, the New York Times, CNN, the Wall Street Journal, NBC, Recode, Univision, Barron’s, the Daily Beast, the Economist, HuffPost, Insider, the Atlantic, the New York Post, and others. –Breitbart

The things that are going to be blocked are not going to be fake storiesThe things that are going to be blocked and censored, the things they are going to keep from people is going to be stuff they just don’t want you to focus on or know about.” –Melissa Dykes

  1. The acquisition of so many media sources by a small number of parties led to too much power in too few hands. The acquisition of a media source isn’t just a business investment;more importantly, it is buying control of public opinion. These buyers feel cheated when alternative news sources spring up. The more cheated they feel, the better for us!

    • Mellow Man says:

      Acquisition nothing, he created this forum and he can decide what the contents are and who gets to say what. Yeah, he’s on the internet, but that’s open to anyone with a computer, phone, or nearly any other devise today. The internet is basically the electronic street corner.

    I’ll just say good by to Facebook.
    Sgt.

    Sarge, it’s ironic as hell. In the last article Facebook claimed to have hired a law firm to investigate the censorship complaints made against them and now they say they will ramp up their censorship campaign ahead of the midterms. They don’t even mention that Eric Holder is part of the law firm. SHTFPlan.com is the only “social media” for me, LOL.

    In other news.
    I shit my pants today.

  5. I Sean says:

    If you ever used FB your judgement is questionable. If you still use FB you deserve what you get.

  6. Dan Morgan says:

    If you use Facebook for anything other than disinformation, you are irredeemably stupid.

  7. Heartless says:

    If you use/d Facebook….. (a perfect lead-in for a caption contest). Anyone besides me wonder looking @ Zuckerberg’s face just what species he is? I’ve literally seen moles with more human faces. Something jes’ ain’t right with that boy.

    • “Anyone besides me wonder looking @ Zuckerberg’s face just what species he is?”

      His last ((( NAME ))) says it all, or was this a rhetorical question?

  8. Whether it be J3wtube or J3wbook – “censorship” is their motto.

    There’s a reason why these are “free platforms” for people to use – people have the choice to partake in these or not to participate in them.

    Different story if a “user” is investing monies on a monthly or yearly basis – since that is not the case – not sure why people are upset with what a private ownership does or does not do with their product.

    Don’t like it – don’t use it – it’s really that simple.

  9. goofygal says:

    if there is any censoring you can be pretty sure who will not be allowed to speak and who will be allowed

  10. The Deplorable Braveheart says:

    FTW, I wouldn’t mind putting my foot in Zuckerberg’s ass.

  11. Jim in Va. says:

    Take em off of your computer,they are a menace to you and society in general.

  12. Kevin2 says:

    It matters little if a communist, capitalist or fascist controls the press. The, “Media Trusts”, in all forums, need to be broken up in a modern version of the Sherman Anti Trust Act and enforced by the Justice Department with strict not loose interpretation. Political speech must be afforded the maximum Constitutional Protection in substance, method of dissemination and venue.

    Fat chance.

  13. Bert says:

    Why I want to know is did Stormy Daniels attempt to blackmail Trump after receiving her $130,000 whore money in exchange for her nondisclosure agreement.

    Why doesn’t Trump sue Stormy Daniels for breach of nondisclosure agreement, sue her for all she has, including her fake drooplets, and all she’ll ever have.

    • Nobody should be giving this trifling … washed up … 40+ year old $5.00 hooker … named Stormy Daniels any attention.

      • Mellow Man says:

        Dude, the courts do because the Trumpmeister opened his big fat mouth about it and now her attorney can use these utterances as evidence against him in their law suite. Rookie move on his part!

    • Mellow Man says:

      He didn’t sign the agreement and in contract law, yeah I took it, you have make some legally recognized form of acceptance for any contract to be legal; Andthe Trumpster has no evidence of this. So tough stuff!

  14. marvin says:

    Americans need to MAN-UP and boycott facebook.. …. fill facebook’s files with all the copy & paste garbage you can find so it is storing crap …. and DO NOT USE IT ..
    Are you all that neutered?! You cannot live without making a billionaire who HATES you, richer?!
    GROW SOME BITCHES.

  15. marvin says:

    Why hasn’t Sheryl Sandberg been fired? She knew and approved everything going on.
    ZUCKerberg owes every user of FACEBOOK and every person peripheraly affected of His Data Betrayal a million dollars as reparations. Yes, a million ……. dollars.
    ZUCKerberg wants to censor who uses FACEBOOK —- but says WE cannot censor who comes into Our house?!
    Take the locks off his doors. Take those WALLS down from around ZUCKerberg’s houses. NEVER allow him to file a “breaking & entering” complaint because ZUCKerberg wants anyone to be able to “break & enter” America.
    By the way …..ZUCK thinks he can just “share” our house/Nation …..
    he never served in uniform so he should “share” all his money with those who were wounded saving HIS FREEDOM and PROPERTY.
    Since ZUCK does not recognize Our property rights to Our country then he relinquishes all property rights to “his” money.

  16. Warchild Dammit! says:

    I find it very ironic that so many sites rightfully dislike/hate feces book yet still have links to face book,that includes this site,hmmmm….

  17. Krazy Uncle says:

    Censorship by the propagandized majority, what could go wrong?

  18. Anonymous says:

    The Boy Scouts are ramping up too. The organization is changing it’s name to Scouts and will allow females to join. It’s all about blurring the lines.

  19. Orion says:

    Fuk facebook and any other cuntstain stupid enough to use it.

  20. aljamo says:

    Suckerberg is a weasel of a creep. Who appointed that garbage as a judge of the truth?
