Conservatives specifically have been struggling against big tech tyrants for some time now, but they may not have known just how bad the censorship was. Facebook specifically has made great strides to silence the voices of anyone whose opinion is threatening to their narrative.
“New reporting from Project Veritas shows leaked internal memo explaining “Vaccine Hesitancy Comment Demotion” which shows the “goal” is to “drastically reduce user exposure to vaccine hesitancy,” Fox News reported.
Another leaked document addressed “Borderline Vaccine (BV) Framework” that delves into how to classify such content with another expressed “goal” of to “identify and tier the categories of non-violating content that could discourage vaccination in certain contexts, thereby contributing to vaccine hesitancy or refusal,” adding “We have tiered these by potential harm and how much context is required in order to evaluate harm,”
This “framework” would essentially be an algorithm that uses keywords or phrases to identify what content would be considered “vaccine-hesitant” and “harmful”. Harmful content would receive less exposure.
Facebook is not denying these claims, in fact, they’re admitting to them. “We proactively announced this policy on our company blog and also updated our help center with this information,” Facebook told Project Veritas.
There are two “tiers” that decide how much exposure content will get. “Alarmism & Criticism” and “indirect vaccine discouragement”. The second includes news stories that may cause others to think twice about getting the shot.
Facebook is willing to openly suppress news stories that if seen could possibly prevent danger to their users. If of course, the story was credible and true.
This information is shocking. If Facebook can suppress vaccine hesitancy algorithmically, it can certainly suppress all other ideas in the same manner.
