So, when all the news sources print a story that is biased against Trump with the source is "anonymous"

thats o.k. But if it favors Trump they need a named source and concrete proof to print it.

Marie Antoinette would be proud of you. 

 

All "anonymous" sources information should be circularly filed appropriately....as should every complimentary comment that Trump makes about himself that starts with "many people say".

 

GO RV, then BV

Hawley presses Zuckerberg on whistleblower complaint alleging Facebook coordination with Twitter, Google

Zuckerberg says companies coordinate on 'security-related topics,' but not content moderation decisions

Sen. Josh Hawley, R-Mo., on Tuesday pressed Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg on a newly revealed whistleblower complaint alleging that Facebook employees coordinate with Twitter and Google employees to make certain content moderation decisions.

Hawley said a former Facebook employee "with direct knowledge of the company’s content moderation practices" contacted his office about an "internal platform called Tasks that Facebook uses to coordinate projects, including censorship."

"The platform reflects censorship input from Google and Twitter, as well," Hawley alleged. "...Facebook censorship teams communicate with their counterparts at Twitter and Google and then enter those companies' suggestions for censorship onto the Task platform so that Facebook can follow up with them and effectively coordinate their censorship efforts."

Hawley also tweeted a screenshot of an apparent Tasks page on Tuesday afternoon.

Zuckerberg said Facebook uses the Tasks system for "people coordinating all kinds of work across the company," adding later that the company did "coordinate on and share signals on security-related topics," such as "a terrorist attack or around child exploitation imagery or around a foreign government creating an influence operation."

Facebook confirmed to FOX Business that Tasks has been used as a company-wide to-do list, and that the company has been public about working with other companies and organizations to address security concerns. Neither Twitter nor Google immediately commented.

The Missouri senator went on to ask whether Facebook, Twitter and Google employees coordinated content moderation decisions regarding "individuals, websites, hashtags [or] phrases to ban."

"Senator, we do not coordinate our policies," Zuckerberg said, adding later, however, that he "would expect that some level of communication."

Hawley also brought up a platform called Centra mentioned in the whistleblower's complaint. The complaint alleged that Facebook used Centra "to track its users, not just on Facebook, but across the entire internet."

"Centra tags different profiles that a user visits, their message recipients, their linked accounts [and] the pages they visit around the web that have Facebook buttons," Hawley said. "Centra also uses behavioral data to monitor users’ accounts, even if they’re registered under a different name."

 

Facebook confirmed to FOX Business that the platform used Centra to centralize and aid investigations into complex subjects such as coordinated inauthentic behavior.

Sen. Thom Tillis, R-N.C., further pressed Zuckerberg on the subject, asking him to address concerns about how systems such as Tasks "could be used across platforms to force certain outcomes."

The Facebook founder said he thought "coordination specifically on policies or enforcement decisions could be problematic."

"What we do is share signals around potential harms that we’re seeing," like terrorism and foreign interference. Zuckerberg repeated that each company would make its own respective moderation decisions, which he said was "very different than saying the companies are coordinating to figure out what the policies should be."

Zuckerberg was eviscerated in the hearing....he was exposed by his failure to answer questions squarely....and/or honestly.....there should be some great clips later today, as he dances with the devil....pathetic showing Mark......    CL

In the name of protecting people from “dangerous conservatives”, big tech, Dems, and large companies have embraced Communist and McCarthyism modes of operation. BUT, it is supposed to be the Conservatives who are dangerous??? God Help Us.

 

We must band together in the name of Civil Rights to support companies who don’t censor others because of political persuasion or political correctness. I suggest we began a list of companies we can support and companies we need to stop  using or severely decrease  our usage if we really need those particular companies. Thoughts?? 

 

Trump told the crowd to “be peaceful but make their voices heard” and said nothing to encourage the 12 to 13 people who acted totally stupid and  forcefully entered the Capital. 99.8 % of the others didn’t even know what was happening.  I believe the ones who forced their way in should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. 

This event is being used to push measures onto us that big tech and liberal companies have been wanting to do for a long time, just couldn’t find the right opportunity. As one Obama staff member said, “Never let a crisis go to waste”. 

 

I recall the time when burning a book because one didn’t like the content was the ultimate sin in not allowing various thoughts and information. Now it is having a conservative mindset and voicing that mindset.

Guess that would constitute the old adage "turn around is fair play"....

 

For months and months Pelosi and crew have been telling us Trump would illegally take over the country.......how could she know this?......why would he do something like that?

 

So Pelosi must be a profit..😮.......or a criminal who is trying to save herself and position...

 

I hope the military gets involved thru the Insurrection act......any more they are the only ones I trust.....

 

Wars don't have to be fought with bombs and explosions any longer....some clown in Beijing can use a laptop and do just as much, if not more damage....     CL

Censorship is certainly a bad look.....that said, Parlor seems to be the "ambulance chaser" of Big Tech.  "With great power, comes great responsibility".  

 

GO RV, then BV

The CEO of parler is talking about big tech censorship but two days ago he deleted a post by Lin Wood calling for the execution of the Vice President!..........SO...........It looks like maybe he thinks there should be censorship? Real easy to talk out of both sides of the mouth! I guess it’s censorship.......until it isn’t!
