If you are reading this, you obviously love conservative news, up to date and to the point. Unfortunately, Facebook has our numbers falling as most conservative sites are seeing.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg appeared before the Energy and Commerce Committee of the House of Representatives in Washington yesterday where he admitted that Facebook does alter its algorithm to shut down certain types of speech. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) questioned Zuckerberg saying; “We’ve done one hearing on the algorithms, I chair a communications and technology subcommittee here, we’re getting ready to do a second one on algorithms. We’re going to do one next week on prioritization so I’d like to ask you, do you subjectively manipulate your algorithms to prioritize or censor speech?”
Mark Zuckerberg replied; “Congresswoman, we don’t think what we are doing is censoring speech, I think there are types of content like terrorism which I think we all agree we don’t want to have on our service, so we build a system that can identify those and can remove that content and we’re very proud of that work.” Blackburn took Zuckerberg to task saying; “let me tell you something right now, ‘Diamond and Silk’ is not terrorism.”
