Media Watchdog Debunks Right-Wing Conspiracy Theories With Study Showing Facebook Is 'Not Censoring Conservatives'

Julia Conley, staff writer

Reaffirming earlier findings, the media watchdog group Media Matters for America released a study Tuesday showing that contrary to Republican claims, Facebook is not censoring right-wing users or messages.

The group studied nearly 400 accounts focused on political news between July 2018 and March 2019, including pages reporting from a right-wing viewpoint, left-leaning pages, and pages purporting to deliver "non-partisan" news.

From the article:

“‘Right-wing media are (still) lying about censorship,’ the group tweeted.”

That could be shortened to “Right-wing media are still lying.” Sadly, far too many people seem to prefer a comforting lie over a painful truth.
