Joe Biden’s White House pressured Facebook into altering its algorithm with the specific intent of boosting the reach of their liberal media allies that were willing to spread COVID propaganda on their behalf.
The revelation was made thanks to new materials obtained by the House Judiciary Committee which add to a series of discoveries related to the White House’s disturbing relationship with the social media company, labeled by the GOP as the “Facebook Files.”
These materials show Biden White House digital strategy director Rob Flaherty “suggesting” that Facebook change its algorithm to promote left-wing establishment media – like the New York Times and – over its competitors on the conservative side, namely the Daily Wire and Tomi Lahren.
“If you were to change the algorithm so that people were more likely to see NYT, WSJ, any authoritative news source over Daily Wire, Tomi Lahren, polarizing people,” said Flaherty in April 2021. “You wouldn’t have a mechanism to check the material impact?”
Interestingly enough, Flaherty suggested this as a potential solution during a meeting focused on changing the way Americans felt about COVID vaccines, according to their own notes which were obtained by the House Judiciary Committee.
This meeting occurred just a few months into the Biden presidency and his White House was claiming to be concerned about conservative “misinformation” on the platform causing Americans to be vaccine hesitant.
But what he REALLY meant was that the Biden White House wanted to use Facebook to prevent the American public from learning the truth about COVID and the vaccines by amplifying left-wing media sources which were pushing a pro-vaccine narrative.
“What are the things driving hesitancy on your platform? What is it? How big is the problem? When you are intervening, how are you measuring success?” Flaherty asked, according to the meeting notes.
At one point in the meeting, Flaherty became ENRAGED that Facebook didn’t have available some of the data the White House was demanding – so he threatened the tech company to “play ball.”
“I feel like we’re running around in circles. Some partners give us lots of information, some partners tell us to f*** right off. This feels like we’re chasing our tails. If you don’t want to give information, just say that,” Flaherty said.
“I don’t want to feel like I’m going to a dog and pony show. My dream is for FB to play ball. It’s about will we get out of this f***ing mess.”
Previously discovered emails have shown that Flaherty seemed to be “the guy” chosen by Joe Biden to work with social media companies to control the narrative surrounding the COVID jabs.
In one email, Flaherty tore into Facebook for not reducing the spread of “vaccine-skeptical” content.
“I care mostly about what actions and changes you’re making to ensure you’re not making our country’s vaccine hesitancy problem worse,” he wrote. “I still don’t have a good, empirical answer on how effective you’ve been at reducing the spread of vaccine-skeptical content and misinformation to vaccine fence sitters.”
It’s obvious they didn’t want the truth to come out, and they did everything possible to make sure of that.
