Facebook is one of the most troublesome actors in the Big Tech space.
People are fed up with the company’s practices.
And Facebook just got slammed with one shameful distinction to end the year.
Ever since The Wall Street Journal published its “Facebook Files” exposé, the social media giant has been under intense scrutiny.
Censorship and the company’s dangerous targeting of kids were only a couple of the problems unearthed.
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg rebranded the company as Meta, but that did nothing to stop the bleeding in the court of public opinion.
Now Facebook has been voted the worst company of the year.
From Yahoo! Finance:
“Our survey’s 1,541 respondents were mad about a lot this year, from the Robinhood (HOOD) trading freezes last winter to electric truck startup Nikola still not having its act together. But one company irked them the most — Facebook (FB)…The open-ended survey was posted on Yahoo Finance on Dec. 4 and Dec. 5, and dozens of names were submitted. Facebook received 8% of the write-in vote…Congress is constantly demanding answers from the company on both fronts. At the same time, some critics, including conservatives, say Facebook over-policed the platform’s speech and stifled their voices. Other critics, including those on the left side of the aisle, claim Facebook allows the spread of misinformation.”
Facebook has been targeted by the Left since 2016 when Donald Trump defeated Hillary Clinton.
The establishment were furious about Clinton’s defeat, and needed a scapegoat.
The “reason” for Clinton’s defeat turned out to be pitiable ads and barely-visited pages that peddled anti-Clinton propaganda.
Zuckerberg tried to do his penance and paid hundreds of millions of dollars for the innovative and deceptive so-called “Zuckerbucks” campaign that paid 2020 election workers in Democrat jurisdictions in what amounted to a massive get out the vote campaign for Joe Biden.
But Zuckerberg arguably single-handedly funding the Biden presidency wasn’t enough.
And as the establishment always does, they’re hellbent on ensuring either their patsy’s total allegiance or face destruction.
So the Left’s pals in the corporate-controlled press have ramped up their pounding of the table over “misinformation,” in recent months.
Ironically, the corporate-controlled press is one of the biggest purveyors of misinformation.
The so-called mainstream media, with the aid of the Deep State, crafted the Russian Collusion Hoax and pumped the story for two years.
To this day, Democrats believe—without a shred of evidence—Trump conspired with Russia to steal the election.
Yahoo! Finance continued:
“What is especially interesting about the Company Formerly Known as Facebook is just how many and varied the reasons people dislike it. It received 50% more votes than the second-place finisher, Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba, not for one singular offense but for a litany of grievances from groups of people that may have little else to agree about.”
Conservatives and libertarians simply want Facebook to be the free speech platform it was before it was politicized by the Left.
Meanwhile, Democrats want Facebook to be its plaything by suppressing counter-narrative opinions.
Thus far, Zuckerberg has bent the knee to the Left, but it’s still not enough for them.
