Facebook caught suppressing conservative media as Silicon Valley moves towards all out attack on Donald Trump and his supporters

(INTELLIHUB) — For years many in the alternative media have believed that tech giants such as Google and Facebook are either actively suppressing their content or at the very least have programmed their algorithms to be extremely bias against any source considered outside the mainstream establishment.

Now, a report in Gizmodo that quotes five former Facebook contractors has confirmed that there is indeed bias against conservative news outlets at the social media behemoth and this bias may not just be connected to opposition to conservative principles,especially when you consider Silicon Valley’s known hate for Donald Trump and his plan to put America first.

Anyone who has used Facebook has most likely seen the trending news section on the right hand side of the homepage, a section that ostensibly links to the most popular and curated news headlines from across the world.

Publishers, for the most part, obviously hope their content reaches this highly trafficked area (although no real alternative news outlet has ever been featured to my knowledge) but information from the former contractors indicates that certain news outlets are suppressed from appearing despite how popular their content may be.

The Gizmoda report included a variety of interesting nuggets of information in regards to how Facebook really views journalists and news gathering in general and included this astonishing reveal.
