  1. Quote: Facebook maintains that Haugen’s allegations are misleading and insists there is no evidence to support the premise that it is the primary cause of social polarization.

    Easily explained; they can’t see the forest for their own trees. Anything to take down the arrogant, leftist control of Facebook has my support.

    1. Leftist?

      Donald Trump would have never been President if not for Facebook.

      Facebook is the greatest tool that Republicans have. You should be sticking up for their ability to lie to people to keep them angry and voting Republican, Bob.

    2. Finally, Bob, a guy named Joel Kaplan runs their public policy. He worked in the Bush administration, is reportedly buddies with Justice Kavanaugh, and law clerked for Scalia.

      And he’s not alone.

      The Republican political operatives who call the shots at Facebook

      If Facebook is too liberal for you after reading all that, I’m not sure what to tell you. Maybe you’re too conservative?

  2. No mention of the hard leftist leanings and financial contributions of this so-called “whistleblower,” nor the fact that she is actually pro-censorship…as long as what is being censored is not what she agrees with?

  3. Obviously Joe B. is a deluded and “dyed in the wool” follower of the largest catastrophe that has happened to this country in the last 60 years and blindly repeats the talking points put out by the National Democratic Party. Yes, Joe, Donald Trump would not have won the 2016 election without Facebook. However, that is before they actually got into politics and the shut down anything that he had to say in 2020 and presented only one point of view. The reason Trump did so well in 2016 Facebook didn’t limit any point of view and Donald Trump had a fair shot.
    The only reason the Democrats are now willing to go after Facebook is because they are no longer all on board with the Biden Harris point of view (debacle) There is fighting within the party because they know Biden/Harris/Pelosi is one huge train wreck about to destroy their control and what has become essentially one huge act of treason, where the President and his party are doin un-/constitutional acts and running rough shod over the will of most of the people of the country. Whether its good or not are forcing people to be injected with untested “vaccines” and very untested boosters. So “Joe B” stop with the Democrat propaganda. This is NOT the old Soviet Union.

    1. I’m amazed how many Republicans have come around the idea that government should mandate private businesses carry their point of view. What happened to the free market? How come the Republican alternative to Facebook hasn’t taken off?

      Donald Trump was allowed violate the terms of service for all of these social media platforms for YEARS, and the stated rules were only enforced after he sparked an insurrection against the United States Congress. If he hadn’t gone down the road with all of this stolen election nonsense, he would still be on all of those platforms. (How’d that Arizona audit go, anyway.). As usual, Trump has no one to blame but himself… But it’s everyone else’s fault, never trumps. Last time I checked he was not Jesus Christ.

      Here is the simple reality of right wing media – they are feeding their voters nonsense because right wing voters are so angry and so filled with misinformation that they have to keep feeding the beast. You can’t tell a right wing voter the truth or they will lose their minds. Trump and Lindsey Graham both got booed for encouraging people to get vaccinated. Fox News knows they are peddling anti-vaccine nonsense for money. The talking heads don’t actually believe any of what they’re saying, they are all vaccinated.

      The vaccine project will go down as Trump’s greatest accomplishment and his own voters would rather die than take it! How screwed up is that?
