Mark Zuckerberg is the name most people think of if they think of the executives at Facebook.
But there’s another senior personality at Facebook who is increasingly important — COO Sheryl Sandberg. She was the architect of monetizing you — turning you, and Facebook’s other two billion users, into the product that’s bought and sold.
Here’s what Sandberg told National Public Radio (NPR) a few days ago:
QUESTION: Are you prepared for the 2018 congressional elections, which are essentially upon us?
ANSWER: We are doing everything we can to be prepared, and I can talk about some of those specific steps. Fake news — fake news is a really important part of what people are concerned about...
Now, a lot of people talk about "fake news" and what they mean is:
Biased news; in Canada, the CBC shilling for Trudeau, that sort of thing.
But have you ever heard of anyone real say they really wish Facebook would censor it for them, so they didn’t have to worry their pretty little heads themselves?
No, that’s a politician’s answer — usually a politician on the left.
TONIGHT I'll tell you more of what Sandberg said, like about Facebook "proactively" "responding" when someone posts something "that looks like it might be false" — by "dramatically decreasing its distribution" on Facebook.
So, you have 100 or 1,000 Facebook friends. And if you share the wrong opinions, Facebook won’t let you.
Sheryl Sandberg controls more media than the editors of the New York Times, Washington Post, Wall Street Journal, Toronto Star and CBC combined — times ten.
And she just decided that to put her finger on the scale, to tip the balance.
Have you seen a single story about this in Canada?
And do you doubt that, in Canada, we here at The Rebel are the number one target for Trudeau and Sandberg and their left-wing censors?
TONIGHT'S GUESTS: Candice Malcolm joins me to talk about Trudeau's plan to welcome immigrants with serious health problems; then Aaron Wudrick, Federal Director of the Canadian Taxpayer's Federation, discusses Notley's proposal to nationalize the Trans Canada pipeline.
FINALLY: Your messages to me!
