Their open and defiant bias will be their downfall. 

Their refusal to be an open platform to free speech, The squelching of any thought that does not conform to their own will be sword they fall upon. 

 

DJT's tweet here is but a tease of what is to come.

Social media may be too new to know this, but you need to tread lightly when Washington, DC, is looking.

While President Trump has expanded his vocabulary to include “fake social” and “fake search,” last week we had Facebook employees come out against the company for its “political monoculture.”

The calling out of the liberal mindset that is prevalent in Silicon Valley couldn’t have come at a worse time.

Last week’s hearing held by the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence on how foreign influence operations use social media to spread political propaganda opens the doors for all sorts of new grilling.

The Senate Intelligence Committee has invited Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg, Twitter Chief Executive Jack Dorsey and Google CEO Sundar Pichai to appear on Wednesday.

As of press time, Google would only offer to send its senior vice president of global affairs.

That is not how you handle a Senate request, Google, after being called out by the president days earlier.

What these companies appear to be forgetting is that there are shareholders who do not want to hear static about their shares taking a hit over political bias.

A public social media company can’t conflate management’s political views with what it permits platform users to view on its sites and still say it is looking to serve shareholders’ interests.

Intentionally excluding or turning off users isn’t good for advertising revenues.

Social media companies have an obligation to their shareholders to not pollute their own brand and disenfranchise their platforms’ user bases. The revenue derived from advertising is based on the number of users.

It’s time for Silicon Valley to grow up and act in a way that is good for its shareholders, since they are the real owners of the companies.

We had a whole thread on this sentence last week. We where told that these companies had no bias, where concerned more with clicks, didn’t construct algorithms to skew left, punish(fire)employees who didn’t drink the liberal cool aid, couldn’t be regulated because the are PRIVATE companies, etc.....

Fines do not hurt these companies. When your market value is close to a TRILLION dollars a few billion dollar fine is nothing. Now if the govt wants to regulate their content, which I’m 100% against, that may get their and their SHARE HOLDERS, attention.

Fail to see the question.

 

 

But I can picture the Headline:  "Trump ends bias"   

 

 

What a f******g joke

 

That's because you fail to open your eyes to the silencing of opposing views from the Left.

If roles were reversed I’d guarantee he’d be screaming.  Sadly, he won’t admit it which is the ultimate in hypocrisy

Odd, I thought it was the "left" bias that is so overwhelming?

Admit what?    Left, right and center all have bias. It is human nature.
