#MakeThisTrend: Facebook Must Answer for Conservative Censorship

Team GOP - May 9, 2016

Facebook is a social community platform that has become a major source of news and conversation for conservatives and liberals alike. 

Recently, the social media giant has tried to play up its value as a news source by highlighting "trending" items. According to Facebook, the items on its "trending" list are generated by an algorithm that analyzes which stories are popular that day among users. 

But in a chilling new report, former Facebook employees admit to manipulating the "trending" feed and blocking conservative items from being featured. 

According to one employee, who kept a log of items that were curiously omitted, Facebook curators kepts topics like the IRS scandal suppressed. They would also omit coverage from conservative news outlets in favor of MSM sources like the New York Times and the BBC. 

With 167 million US Facebook users reading stories highlighted in the trending section, Facebook has the power to greatly influence the presidential election. 

It is beyond disturbing to learn that this power is being used to silence view points and stories that don't fit someone else's agenda. 

Censorship in any form should give Americans who value their fundamental freedoms great pause.
