SHOCKING: Big Tech Meddling in Midterms
October 19, 2018
Big Tech has been tweaking its algorithms ahead of the midterms in an effort to tip the scales. Breitbart reports:
Democrat candidates for the Senate and House are vastly outpacing their Republican opponents on Facebook and Facebook-owned Instagram, according to analysis by the New York Times — although it’s impossible to say how much of their upsurge is the result of mass-bans and algorithm changes on the part of Facebook.
The analysis shows a 7.8 million advantage in Facebook interactions for Democrat Senate candidates vs. Republican Senate candidates in a 30-day period ending October 15, and a 2 million advantage in interactions for Democrats fighting House races over the same period.
Only in gubernatorial races do Republicans hold a slight advantage in Facebook interactions — of just 100,000.
Democrats also hold a significant advantage on Instagram, with Democratic candidates seeing 5.4 million interactions on their Instagram pages over the thirty-day period, compared to just 213,000 for Republicans.
This is concerning for the future of our democracy.
This is a national security issue and should be addressed.
