Made a few key points in the video above, but one that didn’t make it in due to time constraints is a rather important one…

If Facebook DOES take a liberal bias, I’m not sure how that’s different than any other of our “trusted” news sources on a national level that report the news. Others certainly pick and choose WHAT/HOW they want to report on a daily basis. This happens with essentially every news outlet. Case and point is an obvious one: look at how much news coverage Trump received compared to the other GOP primary candidates. News outlets certainly were considering both his positive and negative appeal to viewers/readers as they continue to cover his every little move.

Do you think Facebook has a liberal bias? What do they have to gain AND lose by doing so? And how much of your trusted news comes from Facebook in the first place?
