Countless times throughout history you have seen someone invest massive amounts of money into a company and then while not being the on paper owner, try to remake the company in their image.
That being said, most of the major social media outlets already have a skewed point of view when it comes to dealing with conservatives. It seems that this latest development isn’t so much of a reshaping as it is an enlarging of an already clear picture.
Recently, Gateway Pundit published an article that exposed how Media Matters, along with other top leftist groups were working with Facebook and Twitter to eliminate conservative content from their giant social media platforms.
In January 2017 after Hillary Clinton was shellacked in the November 2016 election top Democrat operatives at Media Matters, Share Blue, American Bridge, and CREW came together and released their two-year plan to take back power in Washington DC.
The Washington Free Beacon obtained a copy of an interesting document from a retreat that took place in Davos in January of 2018.
Here is a portion of that document:
The document then claims that Media Matters and far left groups have “access to raw data from Facebook, Twitter, and other social media sites” so they can “systemically monitor and analyze this unfiltered data.”
According to their report, these far-left groups have been working with Facebook and Twitter to eliminate conservative content.
The memo went on to state that Media Matters had a discussion with Facebook on how to crack down on fake news, including Media Matters providing the social media giant with “a detailed map of the constellation of right-wing Facebook pages that had been the biggest purveyors of fake news.” The memo also bragged that Media Matters provided Google with “the information necessary to identify 40 of the worst fake new sites” that would be prevented from using Google’s advertising network.
