      There you are wrong.
      Social media was designed as a method to make money from advertising dollars by convincing people it was a method for people to unite with one another.
      Make the people happy to get ads so that they can “unite” with one other and they will get your ads and get more focused ads and be more likely to buy from advertisers and the platform makes more money because of it.
      It was always about making money.
      It was about how can we get people to make us (the platform) money.

      @VidWatcher1X I look at face realities, not at stated modus operandi.

    • ​@Federal Reserve WOLF TheFedWolf The PRC only allows their state-run media to operate in communist china, so you’re not wrong there. But a lot of places around the world obviously don’t follow that model. Your statement “proving all media is manipulated” needs to be clarified though. Manipulated how?

      If you’re saying that all journalistic entities will do everything just to put a biased slant on things, then that statement is automatically false. The AP, while imperfect, rigorously fact-checks its material and does its best to present the most accurate articles it could. Ditto for Reuters, and a lot of other news organizations.

      Maybe instead of just focusing on fox ‘news’ and other American bull$hit propaganda outlets, maybe you should also check the other end of that stick? Surely there’re other news organizations that adhere to much more altruistic ideals than what you’re used to.

      If you’re honest about saying that you hate news organizations that lie, then you yourself should be truthful, balanced, and fair. Right? Which means that you need to avoid making statements like “proving all this media is manipulated” as if it were absolute fact.

      If you want to start researching about news organizations that makes a conscious effort in maintaining journalistic objectivity, a great place to start would be mediabiasfactcheck dot com.

      Go ahead, look it up.

    • @Inarus Lynx Education and values, imho. A guy with a doctorate can still actively spread disinformation if he’s an a-hole.

      But yeah, you’re absolutely right. *Proper* education can mold a person to think critically and objectively, and they’d be resistant to all these lies and bull$hit spread by anyone who would want to take advantage of this mess.

      We’re using our technology wrong in so many ways

  2. 👀…This doesn’t sit well with me.

  3. Twitter took down my account for my irony but they have no problems with disinformation and bigotry.

    • twitter banned me for saying ”jeffery epstien hung himself” in a debate against a denier who flagged me. Twitter then reviewed it and doubled down on the claim that saying epstien hung himself was like me telling a user to hang themselves. The people running this thing are retards.

    • @William Sanders
      Every platform has a component of censorship. If you yell at the clouds no one will bother you.

    • @Van Hoa Phan I’m sure you have some kind of non-point to make with this post… ADHD has you drifting off topic again…

    • @kevdaag Are you trying to tell me about my life and that I haven’t?

  4. Yea misinformation that cnn also spreads lmao stop acting like this segment excludes you.. cnn literally agrees with everything in Facebook, Twitter and googles agenda

  5. Wish they would grill gov officials about all the misinformation they deliver .

    • Wish one of those CEO had the balls to say the lies were from Trump and the politicians in Washington.

      Ive post a much larger post but I totally agree with you. Soooooo pissed off

    • @Jason C. If that was the case I would hate to be you lied to your face every day by fake new after Trump gone 🤣

    • Johnson Patrick | March 25, 2021 at 11:26 PM | Reply

      @Jason C. Both sides lie not just the right. The left lied about Russia gate and still pretends its real because most people haven’t read the muller report because too much words and it’s boring to actually know the truth.

      If anyone needs a grilling it would be richard madcow, ari melber, upchuck toad or nicole wallace

  6. When are they going to grill media owners like Rupert Murdoch for delivering misinformation by the truck load ???

      Facebook is guilty of not only allowing disinformation to spread, they are also liable for actively working to silence those trying to share THE TRUTH!!! I would know, during the election my Facebook account was shut down no less than three times for 20 days at a time, for trying to fend off attacks from trolls trying to debase actual FACTS I was trying to share! Facebook is Criminal….

    Social media is the down fall of the USA they should be held accountable.

    • Social media, like any creation made by man, is a tool. And tools are inherently value-neutral. Japan, Canada, South Korea, and New Zealand all use Google and the same social media apps the US does, but they don’t face the same grave social problems.

      Wouldn’t it be more accurate to say that *bad behavior, apathy, stupidity/ignorance, and greed* are the root causes of any great nation’s downfall? There’re a lot of historical precedents regarding this. The Roman Empire’s collapse is an excellent example, with plenty of similarities.

    • Public schools are the down fall of the USA they should be held accountable.*

    While FB is definitely shady AF, it is the individuals who must be responsible for their own actions.

    • Chris Albert | March 26, 2021 at 3:46 AM | Reply

      That’s true, individuals should be held accountable for their own lies and actions. But here’s where things get complicated: Crazy assholes used to shout horse-crap from street corners and no one takes them seriously. These days, any loons can go viral, gain a following, and by virtue of his or her voice being “heard” by a multitude, gain the kind of relevance they shouldn’t have in the first place. People mistake “reach” for truth. Social media and big tech platforms make that possible. So there is a serious question of just what role these platforms should have in amplifying voices that may be harmful to the public at large.

    • It’s the act of treating online as real life when it’s not, not even close. That’s the problem. Online conversations/activity is the equivalent of butting in to a conversation or inviting yourself to a party you weren’t invited to. In real life ppl don’t act like that, there isn’t anytime to think about what was said and how you reply. Stop treating this as real life and the problems go away, it’s that simple. Force ppl to use video cams so you can see facial expressions and hear tone of voice two very important aspects of conversing not present online making it easier to hide will also stop it in it’s tracks. Can’t dictate personal responsibility when you yourself are not responsible with your platform and pretend it’s real life.

    Why aren’t they going after WHO IS CREATING THE DISINFORMATION IN THE FIRST PLACE??

      @Lee – Child of God I have told you about the right wing lies so please tell me about the left wing lies regarding the storming of the capitol. Like I said before ALL media has bias but to claim, in this current media climate, that both sides lie the same is blatantly false and the fact that you say that means you lean right making your claim of independence hypocritical.

      @Andrew Newman I’m talking about ALL lies and propaganda, not specifically the capital. It is not false that both sides lie. YOUR bias is showing.

    • Andrew Newman | March 26, 2021 at 3:16 PM | Reply

      @Lee – Child of God It is false that both sides lie THE SAME. The vast majority of lies come from the right wing. Repeatedly saying Biden fell down is not a lie, it’s bias but repeated claiming the election was stolen is a lie, not bias.

      @Andrew Newman Ok. You want to play that game? B l m. They say that p o c are k i l l e d for no reason. More w h t s are k i l l e d than p o c. Highly dis pro port ionate – c r i m e is from some in the p o c com which automatically puts them in that position in the first place. And the fact that those cases involved p o c who were doing c r i m e s or being a r r e s t e d for a c r i m e AND r e s i s t e d – a r r e s t and/or did not f o l l o w – l a w f u l – o r d e r s.

      ​@Lee – Child of God LOL. Your words – “You falsely assumed that I’m a right winger”. Hypocrite.

  13. Z burg is such a removed individual he had no clue how the world works. His answers were jokes kids a idiot.

  14. Facebook has been censoring folks but yet they let the big lie go on.

  15. This guy is obnoxious and rude. He needs to have more respect for humanity wtf

    All this wouldn’t have happened if there were no social media platforms. That allow people to connect too easy with possible strangers with the same views on those platforms. A sign of over communications.

  18. There is really no reason to “grill” them, just observe their actions and the targets of those actions thereof……

  19. “Quick Marky, throw out some inter-web nomenclature to bamboozle ‘em.
    Say something with “binary algorithm” in it”.

  20. I wish they would just say. “I’m too rich and powerful, to answer your questions.” They all seem slimy to me!
