Man in Charge of Facebook's 'Trending Topics' Major Clinton Donor

3 views

In what should be a shocking story but doesn’t really surprise anyone, the man in charge of Facebook’s “trending” system has been found out to be a Hillary Clinton donor.

According to Federal Election Commission (FEC) records, Facebook’s vice president of product management, Tom Stocky, donated $2,700 to Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign. The donation is the maximum any one individual can give to a campaign during a primary.

Facebook has recently come under fire for quashing conservative opinion and conservative pages in their “trending topics” section on the website.

Stocky commented on the situation in a Facebook post on Monday:

Facebook does not allow or advise our reviewers to systematically discriminate against sources of any ideological origin and we’ve designed our tools to make that technically not feasible. At the same time, our reviewers’ actions are logged and reviewed, and violating our guidelines is a fireable offense.

If Stocky is in charge of what his employees are pushing in the “trending” section, and those employees are intentionally squelching conservative viewpoints, then by his own admission shouldn’t Stocky himself be on the chopping block?

The Hill reported on Tuesday that Facebook employees have donated $114,000 to the Clinton campaign. The next closest candidate to receive donations from employees of Facebook is former presidential candidate Marco Rubio, and it is not even close. Rubio reportedly received $16,604 worth of donations from Facebook employees.

Facebook can say it is not biased all day every day, but the evidence points out something very different. If it walks, swims and quacks like a duck, it must be a duck.
