    I think that might be referencing Facebook filtering out more pro-conservative news or apparently having a pro-liberal bias in the the little news feed that’s off to the right that I ignore. I think conservatives are upset that facebook is delivering content that correlates with their audience values. 
    I think you're 100% right... but also there is the fact that facebook made some changes that filters out fake news... they are probably noticing a major decline in right-wing content because of that as well, lol.

    I think they are upset that Facebook has been deleting their fake news stories that they have been propagating. The same fake news they have been fed by Russian troll farms.

    I have one who when I point out it’s fake, his response is something like ‘oh well I like it anyway’. He’s odd because he supports trump and what he says and does, but then also back pedals and says he doesn’t care what happens to him re: impeachment because he’s getting what he wants. He buys into the whole ha ha look at the upset liberals stuff.

    I hope they destroy him in court. Absolute destruction.

    Three parents whose children were killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School in 2012 filed a defamation lawsuit on Tuesday against Alex Jones, the right-wing conspiracy theorist who has long claimed the shooting was “completely fake” and a “giant hoax” perpetrated by opponents of the Second Amendment.

    Mr. Jones, the popular radio show host who also operates the conspiracy theory website Infowars, has questioned for years whether 20 children and six adults died in the school massacre in Newtown, Conn. To bolster his false claims, he often cites news reports and video clips from the hours after the shooting that turned out to be incomplete or based on wrong information.

    Soon after they buried their children, many Sandy Hook parents started to come under fierce attack by conspiracy theorists who have said they are actors in an elaborate scheme to enact stricter gun control laws. The fringe theories still thrive in small forums online but have reached a far greater audience through Mr. Jones, the most vocal propagator.

    If only there was a conspiracy in to the disappearance of Alex Jones...
    It's a hopeless situation...
