Project Veritas: Confirmed! Facebook is Scum... w/update

 James O'Keefe is on the job.

Update: 2/28/19  9:13am PDT  It appears Facecrap is blocking links to this post

I think most of us know this about Facecrap already.

A name that keeps coming up in the Project Veritas video is Mike Cernovich, who just released his documentary Hoaxed about fake news .  I'm not a huge fan of Cernovich, mainly due to an early video of one of his rah-rah motivational sessions.  In the first 5 minutes he bandied about so many f-words and s-words that I was appalled.  I'm not overly motivated when the speaker has to resort to such language.

If not for a local man of some conservative and political notoriety giving Hoaxed a firm 5 star review, I would probably skip it. Since our road is completely snowed over and we're hoping for a front loader to dig us out, I will probably watch it today.

In the meantime, take a look at what the Facebook "insider" has to say:
Project Veritas reported:
  • Insider, Formerly Responsible for Content Review in Facebook’s Intellectual Property Dept Speaks Out, Loses Job
  • Facebook Engineers Plan to “demote bad content”
  • Conservative Facebook Page Livestreams Secretly “deboosted,” No Notice to Page Owners
  • Facebook Can Classify Users as Trolls Based on Their Vocabulary, Then Punish By Limiting Bandwidth, Blocking Comments…
  • Facebook Engineer: “‘hateful’ content is coming from right-leaning sites.”
  • “Special features” Triggered “leading up to important elections”
  • Bizarre View of “hate speech” Includes Content from Conservative Commentator


From WND:
Describing itself as the “answer to Facebook and Twitter censoring Christians, conservatives and liberty,” a new social-media platform called USA.Life will officially launch Wednesday.
Founder and CEO Steven Andrew said he decided to use his Silicon Valley tech leadership experience to launch the project after he saw Facebook block millions of people from getting his posts.
Andrew believes Facebook lied to Congress about being “a platform for all ideas,” since they restrict President Trump supporters, Christians and conservatives.
“Facebook blocks 99 percent of my reach, which means 5 million people are missing per month from my account alone,” he said.
Andrew has led multi-million dollar initiatives for Cisco, Better Homes and Gardens, Sega and Stanford.
USA.Life is necessary, he said, because “censorship affects elections, people’s lives and relationships.”
Users can share photos, updates, news, videos and messages, and join groups.
“People can connect with those most important to them, too,” he said.
Andrew set up a crowdfunding page to launch the project, saying USA.Life is for all who love America.

“We don’t have the billions of dollars Facebook, Google and Twitter have, so we need people who want freedom and privacy to contribute what they can,” he said
