News Publishers Abandon Facebook’s Latest Monetization Effort

The fight between Facebook and the true, free press of the internet will likely continue for years to come, as the social network continues to bait and switch their customers.

For years, it has been readily apparent that Mark Zuckerberg and Facebook are not interested in providing a fair and balanced platform for Americans to gauge the world around them.  Where many believe that Facebook is simply taking what they are given by their users and disseminating that equally, the network is pulling a much different rabbit out of their hat.

Zuckerberg himself was forced to admit over a year ago that he was employing a team of engineers to cull conservative news sites from Facebook’s “Trending Topics” section of the site – something that is now done by algorithm.

Furthermore, Facebook now allows users themselves to render certain sources inaccessible by reporting individual posts as “fake news” – a term that has been widely weaponized by the radical left.

Now, as Facebook attempted to bring these unsatisfied users back into the fold with their “Instant Articles” scheme, publishers have already heartily abandoned the new designation, tallying yet another point in the “loss” category at the world’s most popular social network.

You cannot "COEXIST" with people who want to kill you.
