The latest conservative whine is that Facebook has been 'censoring' conservative content. Needless to say, the source of this allegation is anonymous, which should be a big 'red flag' for anyone contemplating the veracity of this story. Nevertheless, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg met with conservative media figures to discuss this issue.
Personally, I think Zuckerberg should have told them to fuck off. Conservatives have long railed against the 'Fairness Doctrine'. Why, here's 'Libertarian Fonzie' himself celebrating the end of the Fairness Doctrine with some other right-winger:
To make matters even more bizarre, Fox news won an appeal which absolved them of an obligation to tell the truth. Not only do conservatives oppose the Fairness Doctrine, they oppose the necessity to eschew prevarication. All of a sudden, they're pissing and moaning about media bias in a corporation that doesn't even use the public airwaves? I know that conservatives love to move goalposts, and that they have the memory span of a gnat, but this is particularly rich... they are losing on the social media front, and now they want 'corrective' measures. Right-wing radio is dying and now right-wingers want to coerce the 'new media' that people dissatisfied with radio and cable television flocked to into giving them preferential treatment.
