The latest Facebook whistleblower joins Project Veritas’ James O’Keefe to give us a peek behind the scenes at the Death Star of social engineering.
Zach McElroy worked at Cognizant, a firm contracted by Facebook to perform content moderation, where he would invariably see in the queue of posts flagged for “civic harassment”, roughly 80% were from conservative, Republican and Trump-supporting accounts.
He says, “I saw everybody around me and I saw myself and I did a little bit of comparing and I thought, ‘There really are not very many conservatives here and because there are not very many conservatives, I really don’t think there are very many people sticking up for the voice of conservatives at a company that handles…the large portion of the discourse online…in charge of what gets said and what gets stifled.”
McElroy secretly videoed several associates bragging about how they mass-delete posts from conservative accounts and put Trump supporters on their watch lists.
He says, “Facebook and Instagram are very large platforms…and our voices are in the hands of people who are almost entirely Left-leaning and not Right-leaning or otherwise unbiased and in speaking with a lot of them, I found that they are not at all shy to exercise their political will in deleting [conservative posts]…”
A Cognizant supervisor is shown on hidden camera, saying he’s aware of what his staffers are doing and that he condones it, because, “Gotta get the Cheeto [Trump] out of office.”
