What this former Obama operative admitted about Facebook has Mark Zuckerberg shaking
After trading closed Monday, Mark Zuckerberg saw his net worth drop by a staggering $5.1 billion.
Facebook has made news for all the wrong reasons in recent days.
But what this former Obama campaign operative just admitted could land Zuckerberg in hot water.
Carol Davidsen, was the director of integration and media analytics for Obama for America during the 2012 presidential campaign.
Davidsen just admitted on Twitter that Facebook was “on our side.”
Davidsen claims that Facebook knew that the Obama campaign mined data from Facebook and appended that to their database.
They came to office in the days following election recruiting & were very candid that they allowed us to do things they wouldn’t have allowed someone else to do because they were on our side.

The admission that Facebook was biased to the Obama campaign comes on the heels of a report that shows the tech giant has made changes that suppress conservative news websites like Patriot Pulse.
On February 6, Facebook changed their algorithm for showing posts in users’ newsfeeds.
This has led some conservative news sites to scale back or close their doors altogether.
Western Journal reports:
Liberal publishers have gained about 2 percent more web traffic from Facebook than they were getting prior to the algorithm changes implemented in early February.
On the other hand, conservative publishers have lost an average of nearly 14 percent of their traffic from Facebook.
This algorithm change, intentional or not, has in effect censored conservative viewpoints on the largest social media platform in the world. This change has ramifications that, in the short-term, are causing conservative publishers to downsize or fold up completely, and in the long-term could swing elections in the United States and around the world toward liberal politicians and policies.
Facebook wants the public to believe they’re non-partisan and it’s simply unbiased computer algorithms in control of what users see.
But the truth is, its Silicon Valley liberals who are writing the algorithms to suppress content that doesn’t fit in their radical liberal worldview.
Patriot Pulse has been a target of Facebook as they often suppress our content.
