Biden Admin Told Facebook to Boost Leftist News, Demote Conservative Sites in Algorithm

The Biden White House is under fire for asking Meta-owned Facebook to boost leftist news outlets like the New York Times and giving them preferential visibility on the platform’s algorithm while demoting right-wing conservative outlets.

House Judiciary Chairman Jim Jordan exposed a series of shocking revelations regarding interactions between the Biden camp and employees at Facebook, ranging from requests to suppress the visibility of independent and conservative news sites while asking Facebook to push Biden’s talking points into user feeds if they made disagreeable posts or comments.

In a thread on ‘X’ (formerly Twitter), Jordan stated:

“These newly subpoenaed meeting notes continue to show the Biden White House’s desire to direct and control content on Facebook. More evidence of the censorship-industrial complex. To be continued…”

The news comes on the heels of reports that a federal judge barred the Biden government from communicating about ‘content moderation,’ including companies such as X (formerly Twitter), YouTube, and Twitter.

Senator Rand Paul responded to the latest revelations, stating:

“More evidence that we need the Free Speech Protection Act! The time has come for resistance and to reclaim our God-given right to free expression.”

“Under my Free Speech Protection Act, the government will no longer be able to cloak itself in secrecy to undermine the First Amendment rights of Americans.”

As The Daily Fetched reported, Facebook also took down content that speculated COVID-19 was man-made after it was pressured by the Biden administration, according to internal company correspondences.

The emails, obtained by the House Judiciary Committee and reviewed by The Wall Street Journal, show Facebook executives deliberating about their approach to handling posts asserting that COVID was man-made.

In the internal emails, the company’s executives expressed confusion and regret over the censorship of these posts.

“Can someone quickly remind me why we were removing—rather than demoting/labeling—claims that Covid is man-made?” Facebook’s president for global affairs, Nick Clegg, said in a July 2021 email.

“We were under pressure from the administration and others to do more,” replied a Facebook vice president responsible for content policy.
