Conservative Leaders Reject Facebook’s ‘Insulting’ Response to Bias Concerns

Listen to the Article!

On Thursday, Media Research Center President Brent Bozell and more than 20 conservative leaders released a statement rejecting Facebook’s “insulting” response to specific examples of bias. They declared, “No conservative leader or organization should accept this as a legitimate response to the undeniable issues we have raised.” 

Many of those signing the statement belong to the Free Speech Alliance, a group of nearly 60 organizations, led by the Media Research Center (MRC), dedicated to combating the censorship of conservatives online.  

The statement and list of signatories is below: 

Former Sen. Jon Kyl’s audit investigating Facebook’s anti-conservative bias is not only disappointing, it completely fails to address the many concerns and specific examples of bias raised by the conservative movement. Kyl spent more than a year hearing the concerns of reportedly 130 conservative groups, and in turn, shockingly left us with a hollow report devoid of substantive policy proposals. This audit is exactly the opposite of what conservatives were hoping for.
 
Facebook has listened to the conservative movement’s complaints and in response has invited us to pound sand. It’s insulting but unsurprising. Unfortunately, this is how Facebook routinely responds to criticism.

No conservative leader or organization should accept this as a legitimate response to the undeniable issues we have raised. This is purely another superficial attempt by Facebook to placate conservatives with empty promises.
