Facebook workers routinely prevented conservative news from trending – former employee

5730df3ac3618875138b45c3Facebook’s news team routinely prevented conservative news stories from appearing in the social media giant’s astronomically influential ‘Trending’ news section, according to a report.

According to a Monday report from Gizmodo, a former Facebook contractor who worked as a ‘news curator’ for the social media giant said that other workers would remove right-wing topics such as Mitt Romney, Rand Paul and the Conservative Political Action Conference from making the site’s Trending news list, even though they were popular enough to qualify.  Source
