This takes the cake!Facebook Algorithm Removes Declaration of Independence Text as Hate Speech!!!!

America’s founding document might be too politically incorrect for Facebook, which flagged and removed a post consisting almost entirely of text from the Declaration of Independence. The excerpt, posted by a small community newspaper in Texas, apparently violated the social media site’s policies against hate speech.

Facebook? trust? Let’s silence conservatives in time for the 2018 elections! And please regulate us!

That’s what this is all about. Republicans learned how to use social media, so now Progressives need to make sure that they cannot use it again. I quit Facebook because I no longer trusted it. But now Facebook plans to rank, and suppress, news organizations by the extent to which they are “trusted”! Trusted by whom? I’m sure Faacebook’s editors will trust the New York Times. I do not trust the New York Times, and haven’t since I learned in graduate school (I’m talking about the 1970s) about how they and Walter Duranty lied to cover up the Ukrainian famine for Stalin.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said Tuesday that the company has already begun to implement a system that ranks news organizations based on trustworthiness, and promotes or suppresses its content based on that metric.

Zuckerberg said the company has gathered data on how consumers perceive news brands by asking them to identify whether they have heard of various publications and if they trust them.

“We put [that data] into the system, and it is acting as a boost or a suppression, and we’re going to dial up the intensity of that over time,” he said. “We feel like we have a responsibility to further [break] down polarization and find common ground.”

Zuckerberg met with a group of news media executives at the Rosewood Sand Hill hotel in Menlo Park after delivering his keynote speech at Facebook’s annual F8 developer conference Tuesday.

The meeting included representatives from BuzzFeed News, the Information, Quartz, the New York Times, CNN, the Wall Street Journal, NBC, Recode, Univision, Barron’s, the Daily Beast, the Economist, HuffPost, Insider, the Atlantic, the New York Post, and others.

The event, called “OTR” (shorthand for “off the record”), is an annual gathering meant for new media news executives to talk shop. It is in its second year. Zuckerberg’s remarks were initially meant to be, like the name of the conference, off the record, but he agreed to answer questions on the record.

Facebook purge of conservatives continues apace

This is part of the reason I quit Facebook. You don’t have to be clairvoyant to see what’s coming. If you stay on Facebook, you’ll be left with nothing but cat pictures and Progressive propaganda and news slant. Did I mention Group think?

Zuckerberg said the company will invest “billions” of dollars in a combination of artificial intelligence and tens of thousands of human moderators to keep both fake news and deliberate propaganda at bay, especially in elections.
