Facebook Shocker

In a stunning revelation, former Facebook staffers are claiming that conservative news is deliberately suppressed on the FB site. In other words, where FB used to stand for "Fair and Balance," it now stands for "False Bulls**t if these former staffers aren't just tasting sour grapes.

The giant social media site is accused of fiddle farting with its formulas to suppress conservative news, but like those sour grapes, this is hard to swallow. But this is what these anonymous losers told tech site Gizmodo

Who'd a thunk? Accusations like this goes after the very credibility of what the world thought of as a site for all eyes and minds. This claim, saying that any media organization has a political bias, may blow the lid off the media industry.

FB relies on computer algorithms to determine what is "trending" in order to boost traffic for the hottest topics the algorithms spit out. But according to these obvious vast right wing conspiracy liars, FB hires "journalists" to tweak the algorithm formulas, and this is where the political bias is supposedly born.

Who knew? I mean Mark Zuckerberg, the CEO of Facebook, is a freaking billionaire, and that has to make him a rich conservative white guy. He couldn't possibly go against his own party as a former journalist told Gizmodo, claiming they "routinely suppressed news stories of interest to conservative readers."

Even more unbelievable was that several former FB "news curators" told Gizmodo that they were directed to "inject" certain topics into the trending list, even if they weren't popular enough to warrant making the list.

I feel terrible. I cannot conceive of any media outlet abdicating their responsibility of reporting the news that has the merit to be reported fairly. That's just not the liberal way.

Oh, wait.
