Sen. Ted Cruz Grills Mark Zuckerberg … Facebook “Appears to be a Pervasive Pattern of Political Bias” (VIDEO)
ONCE AGAIN THE LEFT IS CAUGHT RED HANDED BEING BIAS …
Yesterday Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg was front and center before a joint Senate committee answering questions regarding Facebook practices as to user information privacy and their obvious pattern of political bias. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) asked, are you a neutral public forum or are you engaged in political speech? Sen. Cruz then went on to point out to Mr. Zuckerberg that many Americans are concerned that Facebook is biased against conservatives. Cruz went on to ask why Facebook suppressed conservative news and why Facebook shut down certain pages it deems controversial, naming examples such as as “Chick-fil-A appreciation day” page, a post from a Fox News reporter, and Trump supporter Diamond and Silk’s Facebook page. Facebook deemed Diamond and Silk’s Facebook page, two black conservative women, to be unsafe to the community.
Questioning Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg at a Senate hearing Tuesday, the Republican senator and former GOP presidential candidate said that to many people there “appears to be a pervasive pattern of political bias” after some conservative pages were taken down from the platform. In a series of pointed questions, Cruz asked Zuckerberg if he had tracked the political affiliations of his employees.
Zuckerberg said he had not. But he noted that the company is based in left-leaning Silicon Valley, and said “it is a fair concern.”
Finally, Facebook has been outed for what they truly are, a liberal, Left-wing, bias media platform. Facebook and Zuckerberg are not interested at all with a platform of all ideas. If that was the case there would not be so many examples of right leaning web sites being penalized by Facebook and even taken down. Zuckerberg could not come up with one example of a Left leaning site that was treated the same. Imagine that?
The senator cited the 2016 controversy over how Facebook editors handled conservative-leaning political news in the trending topics feature. He also questioned why Facebook shut down certain pages it deems controversial, naming examples such as as “Chick-fil-A appreciation day” page, a post from a Fox News reporter, and Trump supporter Diamond and Silk’s Facebook page.
“Senator, let me say a few things about this. First, I understand where that concern is coming from because Facebook and the tech industry are located in the Silicon Valley which is an extremely left-leaning place,” Zuckerberg said, addressing Cruz. “And this is actually a concern that I have and that I try to route out in the company — is making sure that we don’t have any bias in the work that we do.
He added that it was a “fair concern” before Cruz cut Zuckerberg off to ask if any left-leaning pages, like those of Planned Parenthood, Moveon.org, or Democratic candidates, had been shut down by Facebook.
Zuckerberg said he was “not specifically aware” of any pages that may or may not have been shut down.
Cruz pointed out that Facebook has 15,000 to 20,000 people working on security and content review, and asked if Zuckerberg was aware of those employees’ political orientations.
“No, Senator, we do not generally ask people about their political orientation when they are joining the company,” Zuckerberg replied.
JUST HOW DESPERATE IS THE LEFT?
From Newsbusters comes this pathetic beg from the liberal MSM for Oprah Winfrey to run against President Donald Trump in 2020. Really, is that all the LEFT has? Wasn’t it just a little less than two short years ago that the LEFT and the MSM mocked Donald Trump for his run for president because he had no experience and was just a TV guy? They called him a clown and a joke. The LEFT said that no one with any expereince in politics should run for president. But of course it is different for Oprah. However, if she does decide to run she might have some explaining to do as to why she was so chummy with Harvey Weinstein.
Hmm, #MeToo, eh?
CBS This Morning co-host Gayle King on Tuesday urged her best friend Oprah Winfrey to run against Donald Trump in 2020. King even absurdly insisted she could stay on at CBS and cover the race “impartially.” The co-host, it turns out, has been lobbying her friend to run for months. On the show, King pleaded, “But I also think you have a unique ability in terms of healing and connecting all people.”
King even cited the late poet Maya Angelou, pleading to Winfrey: “What do you think Maya would say? It’s one of these times I wish Maya was here. What do you think that she would say?”
After all this, King disputed the idea that a potential Winfrey run might compromise her as co-host of CBS This Morning:
GAYLE KING: Somebody told me you’d have to leave your job at CBS. I said, “Why do I have to leave my job at CBS?”
OPRAH WINFREY: I think you might.
KING: No, I don’t. I could be very impartial. I could be very impartial.

Sean Hannity – Fox News, 2/1/18: What Would the MSM & Democrats be Doing If Rolls Were Reversed and Trump did What Hillary, Obama Admin. & Heads of FBI and DOJ Did?
#RELEASE THE MEMO looks like it will happen today, Friday, 2/2/18.
The double standard and liberal media bias has come to a head. Democrats have consistently stated that they have no evidence of collusion between the Russians and Donald Trump. Yet, the MSM and the LEFT want no part of transparency for possible abuses in the DOJ and FBI. So what are Democrats so afraid of if they have nothing to hide? The question really is, why would the media not want the truth? Sadly, the LEFT and their lapdog media continue to lie to the American people.
The MSM has the Watergate story of their life time in front of them, but because of their political bias and hatred for President Trump, they will not investigate to find the truth. This is the death of journalism.
House Intel Votes to Release 4 Page Surveillance Memo to the Public … GOP Lawmakers Have Called It “Shocking,” “Troubling” and “Alarming”
#RELEASE THE MEMO, the memo has been released by House Intelligence Committee …
The 4 page memo that summarizes the FBI and DOJ’s abuses relating to the Steele dossier, the Obama administration’s FISA applications, and improper spying on the Trump campaign by the Obama administration has been released by the House Intelligence Committee. The memo alleges the FBI/DOJ/Obama administration abusedFISA law to obtain warrants. Republicans have called the contents of the memo as “shocking,” “troubling” and “alarming.” As stated at Powerline, “You can also judge the memo’s contents from the remarks of arch-Democrat Adam Schiff: ‘Today this committee voted to put the president’s personal interests, perhaps their own political interests, above the
Democratic Party’s national interests,’ the Democrat said.” So why doesn’t the Democrats, the LEFT and the liberal MSM want the contents of the memo open to the public? The lack of transparency on the part of the LEFT is telling and will be remembered come election time. Just how damning is it? The public will see soon and be able to make their own call. The truth needs to come out on this.
The House Intelligence Committee on Monday evening voted to release a classified memo circulating in Congress that purportedly reveals government surveillance abuses.
The vote was announced to reporters by California Rep. Adam Schiff, the top Democrat on the committee, who called it a “very sad day, I think, in the history of this committee.” The motion passed on a party-line basis, he said.
President Trump now has five days to decide whether he has any objections before the memo can be publicly released.
Last week, a top Justice Department official urged House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes not to release the memo, saying it would be “extraordinarily reckless” and could harm national security and ongoing investigations.
The four-page memo has being described by GOP lawmakers as “shocking,” “troubling” and “alarming,” with one congressman likening the details to KGB activity in Russia.
The memo will not be immediately released, but could be at any time this week or next. Following the release of the memo, the document goes to President Trump, who has up to five days to review and reject or approve its publication. Look for this bombshell to hit on Friday just in time for the Sunday shows to discuss … TIC, TOC!!!
