Pot, Meet Kettle: Media Matters Teams With Facebook To Silence “Fake News”

posted on January 28, 2017

The anti-gun leftist group Media Matters told donors last weekend that it has been working behind the scenes with Facebook to silence so-called “fake news”—read: stories it doesn’t agree with—both on the social media network and on Google, the Washington Free Beacon reports.

Google has banned 200 publishers from its AdSense network, after orchestrating a digital “book burning” last year in which it quashed some 1.7 billion ads for “violations.” And Facebook announced Wednesday that it was changing the algorithm of its “trending topics” section to force-feed viewers content based not on its popularity, but on what “Facebook-designated publishers” deem worthy.

Hmmm. Sounds like the same elitist media political arrogance—such as when politicians lie, and the media swear to the lies on the rationale that the ends justify the means—that Americans so passionately rejected on Election Day. No wonder Democrats throughout the party are telling David Brock and his Media Matters censors and shills to shut up.
