Ted Cruz Just Took Mark Zuckerberg To The Woodshed Over Censoring Conservatives On National TV

By

Under questioning from Ted Cruz, less than a month ago, as to whether Facebook was a open forum or a publisher, Facebook Global Policy Management Head Monika Bickert told Congress:

The mission of our company is to connect people. We do not look at ideology or politics.  We want people to be able to connect and to share who they are… We do not have any policy about political ideologies that affect our platform.

Conservative publishers that use Facebook’s platform – those of us that are left, anyway – know that’s simply not true and Zuckerberg’s inability, or unwillingness, to answer the same question from Ted Cruz just moments ago is proof of that.

The Cambridge Analytica data breach, as serious as it is, in nothing more than a smokescreen for the greater threat that Facebook’s censorship poses to the future of our freedoms.  

Do not allow your representatives to turn Zuckerberg’s time in the barrel into a regulatory debate.
