The Wall Street Journal has published internal documents that show Facebook knowingly targeted and suppressed content from conservative publishers — including my website, ToddStarnes.com.
It was the worst kept secret in digital media.
Facebook introduced tools after the 2016 presidential election that intentionally decreased traffic to conservative websites like Breitbart, Western Journal and my website.
