Project Veritas – Real Clear Politics June 23, 2020
With the help of a company insider, “Project Veritas” appears to have captured members of Facebook’s content moderation team saying that they happily delete pro-Trump political content because it is “a very progressive company who is very anti-MAGA.”
“Gotta get the cheeto out of office,” one said.
Another content moderator, Lara Kontakos, was asked what she did when she saw a posts supporting the president: “If someone is wearing a MAGA hat, I am going to delete them for terrorism.”
Then, Kontakos looked around at her colleagues: “I think we are all doing that.”
Zach McElroy, the insider, said more than 75% of posts flagged for moderator review supported President Trump and conservative causes and said he would be willing to testify that Facebook is not telling the truth about its political bias.
McElroy’s story raises serious doubts about the Capitol Hill testimony of Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, who gave lawmakers the impression that his company only takes content that could cause harm, such as relating to terrorism or hate speech, but never for politics,” said James O’Keefe, “Project Veritas” founder.
