Ten Reasons Why Glenn Beck Is Wrong About Facebook’s Bias Against Conservatives
May 21, 2016
Glenn Beck has been shamelessly man-crushing on Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg after the meeting he and 16 other conservatives had with the tech billionaire.
The radio talker has been quick to assure conservatives that Zuckerberg is “sincere” and can be “trusted” despite reports from several Facebook whistleblowers that the social media giant actively suppresses conservative news stories and boosts leftwing causes like Black Lives Matter in their “trending” news section.
But if The Blaze founder read Breitbart, he would have ample proof of why Zuckerberg is anything but an impartial player when it comes to politics. Here are ten reasons why Facebook shouldn’t be given the benefit of the doubt by conservatives.
1. Zuckerberg scolded Facebook employees for writing “All Lives Matter” on a wall at the company’s headquarters.
As Breitbart’s Adelle Nazarian reported:
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg scolded “malicious” employees for crossing out and replacing the phrase “Black Lives Matter” with “All Lives Matter” on a wall at the company’s Menlo Park headquarters.
The wall is meant to allow staff to express random thoughts on it. Zuckerberg sent the message in a private, internal memo addressed to Facebook employees.
According to Silicon Beat, the memo was first attained by Gizmodo, which took a screenshot of the message. In it, Zuckerberg said that he and other Facebook heads had warned employees to cease the behavior, but to no avail. He said the “disrespectful behavior” had now become “malicious as well,” and that the company is investigating the incidents.
He went further, essentially endorsing the “Black Lives Matter” movement.
“There are specific issues affecting the black community in the United Sates, coming from a history of oppression and racism,” Zuckerberg wrote. “‘Black lives matter’ doesn’t mean other lives don’t — it’s simply asking that the black community also achieves the justice they deserve.”
