Facebook is making an announcement about elections that should terrify you

Big Tech is dangerously expanding its power.

Freedom of speech is under assault now that public discourse rests in the hands of Silicon Valley oligarchs.

And Facebook is making an announcement about elections that should terrify you.

When Donald Trump defeated Hillary Clinton in 2016, Democrats obviously did not get what they wanted.

Instead of assessing why Clinton was so unpopular, the Democratic establishment determined that online misinformation was to blame.

The nebulous “misinformation” term has been used as a pretext to silence political opposition, and that was just the beginning.

Facebook is planning to form an election commission to handle matters regarding misinformation.

The New York Times reports:

“Facebook has approached academics and policy experts about forming a commission to advise it on global election-related matters, said five people with knowledge of the discussions, a move that would allow the social network to shift some of its political decision-making to an advisory body. The proposed commission could decide on matters such as the viability of political ads and what to do about election-related misinformation, said the people, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because the discussions were confidential. Facebook is expected to announce the commission this fall in preparation for the 2022 midterm elections, they said, though the effort is preliminary and could still fall apart.”

The Times notes that Facebook is simply trying to indemnify itself, but that’s only the start of the problems.

Facebook’s oversight board that upheld Trump’s suspension from the platform was composed of left-wing academics and people hostile toward conservatives.

The election commission would undoubtedly follow the same tack.

Facebook will handle election policing to a “nonpartisan” group of people who just so happen to be entirely liberal with perhaps some Lincoln Project Republicans tossed in to give the appearance of balance.

Any supposed “misinformation” coming from fringe sources online pales in comparison to the coordinated corporate-controlled press effort to bury the Hunter Biden laptop story in the run-up to the 2020 election.

The story was true, but the so-called “mainstream” media made a conscious decision to treat it as “Russian disinformation” even though the claim was bogus.

Worse yet, members of the intelligence committee – namely the entrenched Deep State that hated Trump – gave credence to the Russian disinformation bogus narrative.

The Hunter Biden scandal and the reaction to it were two of the biggest stories in recent political history, and both were largely ignored by the corporate-controlled press.

These are the ideological cousins of the people who will likely be running election integrity for Facebook.
