Facebook to Launch October Surprise Just Before Election


Facebook announced they are implementing, what seems to be, a new censorship tool beginning October 1st.

It started with a measure to address tensions in Australia between regulators and Facebook that would require Facebook to pay media outlets for the content posted on their website.

“We also can remove or restrict access to your content, services or information if we determine that doing so is reasonably necessary to avoid or mitigate adverse legal or regulatory impacts to Facebook.”

According to BBC:

Facebook has threatened to stop users from sharing news content in Australia as it prepares for a new law forcing it to pay publishers for their articles.

But this move doesn’t just apply to Australia.

And it comes at a pretty opportune time for the social media giant that has long been accused of censoring conservative opinions, facts, and politicians.

Just over 30 days before the United States election in November, Facebook will step up its efforts to remove content that it feels doesn't jive with their business objectives.

But what are their business objectives? That seems pretty 'subjective' in itself.

Facebook has readily suspended conservatives like Candace Owens, Libertarian Austin Peterson  before an election, and even removed a video that President Trump posted about the Chinese virus being of little danger to children.

In fact, I had a "partly false information" flag on a Twitter video that I re-posted on Facebook, just last week, that was nothing but Kamala Harris talking on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert.

Facebook fact checked that video with an article from USA Today. I posted her words above the video. Somehow, according to Facebook Fact Checkers, an article from USA Today carries more weight than Harris's own words.

I don't recall seeing any videos of Adam Schiff claiming he has direct evidence of Russian Collusion being censored, even though that turned out to be false. In fact, Russian Collusion pushers virtually had free reign on the platform as far as I have seen.

While Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg says that he doesn't believe Facebook should be the arbiter of truth, it seems that's exactly what they're doing.

Why should we trust Facebook to decide what information we can see? Does anyone actually trust that they aren't, and won't be, meddling in the 2020 election?

  1. ALL “so called” social “media” companies NEED to be regulated the same as any other broadcast company that utilizes advertising as a revenue source and “self regulates” outside content that it may personally disagree with. we already KNOW that “most” of them are run by socialists/communists,and as such truth ALWAYS suffers because truth usually shows their Ideology to be biased and grossly flawed as well as VERY anti American. Just regulate the sob’s !!

    1. The fix is to have a conservative email and social media provider. Maybe even a neutral one that does its homework before posting false stories. AOL today is all over the false story about the presidents visit to war mimorials and comments “unknown sources” provided that Biden, more news media and the dems have jumped all over. The article publishes in the Atlantic is false.
      Please give us a conservative providers(s).

  2. Facebook cannot be trusted and clearly CEO Mark Zuckerberg will twist the facts and his actions to meet his objectives. Everyone knows that he has been censoring the conservative messages for years. His employees have already testified in multiple sources that they have been guided to do such censoring.
    Clearly, Mark wants to use his platform for his political purposes and attempt to get a socialist elected. The top tech companies who support Biden know that in a socialist society they will be treated as the top 1% elite, with the common folks falling to the common denominator that pulls everyone down to the lowest level!

  3. HAVE NOT BEEN SUCCESSFUL IN SHARING TO FACEBOOK ANY OF YOUR RECENT ARTICLES, INCLUDING THIS ONE HAVE TRIED REPEATEDLY IN LAST WEEK, ALWAYS JUST GOES TO FBOOK PAGE , NO SHARE OPTIONS/BOX -DISPLAY-ETC…….THANK YOU D.
