Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg admitted today to altering the sites algorithm to shut down certain speech on the platform. Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg appeared before the Energy and Commerce Committee of the House of Representatives in Washington today where he admitted that Facebook does alter its algorithm to shut down certain types of speech. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN), questioned Zuckerberg saying; weve done one hearing on the algorithms, I chair a communications and technology subcommittee here, were getting ready to do a second one on algorithms. Were going to do one next week on prioritization so Id like to ask you, do you subjectively manipulate your algorithms to prioritize or censor speech?
Mark Zuckerberg replied; Congresswoman, we dont think what we are doing is censoring speech, I think there are types of content like terrorism which I think we all agree we dont want to have on our service, so we build a system that can identify those and can remove that content and were very proud of that work. Blackburn took Zuckerberg to task saying; let me tell you something right now, Diamond and Silk is not terrorism.

This little boy needs a good spanking!!!! and his toys taken away!!
People who set out to censor speech rarely admit they are setting out to censor speech.
It actually does not matter what he thinks.
it only matters what is. They are censoring free speech
He’s not censoring it. He’s just “shutting it down”. That’s completely different. :-)
I dont censor people who agree with me.
Oh! Well okay, then.
Thank you for the clarification...
But...but...but...they have the best of intentions!
Are we sure he’s even human? He looks like he has empty eyes. I think he’s A.I. without the intelligence part.
We don’t think the sun rises and sets each day; it just comes up and goes down.
The little dumbass had a good idea, but good ideas do occasionally come from dumbasses.
Of course, being a progressive means that he will remain a loathsome little dumbass.
In my dreams last night I had a vision of this conversation led by a US Senator to Mr. Zuckerberg: “Listen, you little levo-fascist puke, we are going to apply every antitrust law ever written to put an end to your high tech bull shit.”
Then I woke up.
Please ask Mr. Zuckerberg why is Facebook censoring conservative bloggers such as Diamond and Silk. Facebook called them unsafe to the community, that is ludicrous, they hold conservative views, that isnt unsafe. Whats your response to that?
Please ask Mr. Zuckerberg why did you rob the downtown branch of Joe’s Savings and Loan? Whats your response to that?
Zuckerberg replied; Congressman, in that specific case, our team made a mistake. And we have already gotten in touch with the bank to give the money back.
Mark Zuckerberg: We Dont Think What We Are Doing Is Censoring Speech>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
Lets get it tested then by SCOTUS. My bet is that what Zuck the F*ck is doing is an illegal restriction of 1st amendment speech. You bet it is censorship, and Zuckerberg is the modern equivalent of Joseph Goebbels working for the liberal fascist hegemon of Barrack Obama . If Congress examined what Zuck the F*ck did in Libta, Egypt and elsewhere to organize Muslim Brotherhood riots on social media, who subsequently went out and committed genocide in Egypt against Coptic Christians, Zuckerberg would be regarded in a much different light by Congress.
Zuckerberg and Facebook are highly dangerous to the democratic institutions of the United States.He seeks to do in America what he did in Libya and Egypt: Organize leftists and socialize them into a mass of screaming no mind liberal fascists.
You bet Zuckerberg censors opposing views to the liberal fascist hegemon in America, THATS HIS JOB!
More about the liberal fascists ( good read) :
“Barrack Obama: The Quintessential Liberal Fascist”
“Which they have every right to do. They’re a private company.”
But they need to be honest and forthright about it. They don’t even realize what they are doing. It means they can commit the most heinous crimes due to personal ignorance of their actions.
It may have been divine! :-)
A slighty better way for me to say it:
A virtual community without equal weights and measures. The presented communications and interconnections do _not_ represent what the community is actually reading/watching, saying and reporting, but rather a contrived version of those activities and what members are doing.
I.e., propaganda, lie, deceit and conjuring.
E.g., _trending_ information is _not_ what the community is actually trending. It is what the virtual owners say is trending; popular; most active...
