Whistle-blowers working at Facebook have admitted that the company used an algorithm, to target users who expressed scepticism towards covid-19 vaccines. The algorithm assigned a “vaccines-hesitancy score” to user comments and posts.
FOX News spoke to James O’Keefe, the head of Project Veritas. O’Keefe told Fox that two Facebook employees had leaked documents showing that the company was testing a ‘beta’ version of the algorithm to target anti-vaxxers.
The Mail Online reports:
The leaked documents purport to show that the beta version was being tested on 1.5 per cent of some 3.8 billion users of Facebook and its subsidiary, Instagram, around the world.
Project Veritas unveiled documents it claims to have obtained from the whistleblowers.
The title of the document reads ‘Vaccine Hesitancy Comment Demotion.’
In its ‘executive summary’ section, it states that the goal is to ‘drastically reduce user exposure to vaccine hesitancy (VH) in comments.’
The document states that ‘reducing the visibility of these comments represents another significant opportunity for us to remove barriers to vaccination that users on the platform may potentially encounter.’
This is confirmation of what we’ve known all along. While it’s not earth shattering, it’s nonetheless important. The Facebook page for The Richie Allen Show was deleted two weeks ago, without warning and with no explanation.
I know it’s because of the articles posted on this website. Many of my articles contain quotes from established scientists and academics who are very concerned about the safety of covid vaccines. Facebook deleted several links to the articles before running out of patience and deleting my page.
Owning your own website has never been more important than it is now. I’ve told you this a thousand times on the radio show. Hayden Hewitt’s face has turned blue from telling you. Facebook and Twitter have 100 per cent control over who sees your posts and 100 per cent control over what you get to see and what you don’t.
You can build a website for next to nothing. Or you can blog through new sites like http://www.altfeed.org where you will not be censored and there are no algorithms to limit your reach.
