Mark Zuckerberg Plans to Reduce Political Content on Facebook Platform

(HorizonPost.com) – There’s no question that 2020-21 has been a very strange, unsettled period with the COVID-19 pandemic, rioting across the country and on Capitol Hill, and the social media giants deciding to squelch Conservative voices. So when Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced his desire to reduce political controversy from the platform on January 27, one might take that idea with a big grain of salt.

Project Veritas has released a video of an alleged conference call among company executives discussing world leaders’ reactions to their banning of then-President Donald Trump, calling it an act that didn’t seem within the bounds of the idea of democracy. But, according to Nick Clegg, there aren’t enough “ … democratically agreed rules and principles.”

People and corporations regularly make donations to political causes, with many of them giving money to all parties. Yet Big Tech elected only to enrich Joe Biden’s campaign. It makes one wonder if this change will be a positive one, or if it will serve to further silence conservatives and ensure nobody can voice disagreement with Big Tech’s agenda.
