Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg told the establishment media at a conference on Tuesday that Facebook is going to "dial up" its "suppression" of news outlets he deems lacking in "trustworthiness."
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said Tuesday that the company has already begun to implement a system that ranks news organizations based on trustworthiness, and promotes or suppresses its content based on that metric.We already what the results of this will be as CNN, one of the least trustworthy propaganda mills on the planet, saw a "remarkable 30.1 percent increase" in engagement on Facebook in the month of March according to social media analytics service NewsWhip.
Thanks to Zuckerberg's changes, CNN is now by far the number one site on Facebook according to NewsWhip's engagement rankings:
Meanwhile, Breitbart has fallen from rank 9 last December to rank 21.
A study from Western Journal found Facebook's algorithm changes were "crushing" right-wing sites and boosting leftists.

Google and Twitter have both made similar changes to suppress right-wing voices and they're getting more oppressive every month.
This is an organized attempt by Big Tech to suppress alternative voices so no "rogue" candidates like Donald Trump can ever get elected. Americans need to demand these big tech companies be regulated as public utilities and forced to honor the First Amendment.
