histleblower Exposes Facebook Censorship Techniques, A/V (EN)
KUMAR ("Aggressive Progressives" channel): I was a content specialist who helped promote videos on Facebook's newsfeed. I was doing that earlier this year, January through March. Then in spring, 2018, I woke up one morning to see that all your [Jimmy Dore production] videos had gone dark. And by that, I mean, your videos were getting flagged on Facebook for political content, and the reason being that you were acting 'a little too Russian.' Back in 2017 there was that Tech Crunch [search] report that was saying, Facebook was taking measures to stop the spread of fake news by banning certain political accounts from promoting their videos on their newsfeed. So when I heard Mark Zuckerberg in 2018 telling congress that he'd be doing the same thing, I thought, 'What changed between 2017 and 2018? Are they taking new measures? Are they re-taking the measures?' It wasn't until a week later that I realized, Variety magazine reported that Facebook Watch, which is Facebook's media platform, had reached a multi-million dollar deal with CNN, Fox News, ABC, large media outlets. So nothing about your content changed between 2017 and 2018, but the congressional testimony was the perfect opportunity for the political establishment, the media establishment, and the tech companies to form an alliance against small media outlets such as yourself.
