Facebook To “Probe” Anti-Conservative Bias After 60 Conservative Leaders Declared Crisis
Anything the left doesn’t like is now deemed hate speech.

Facebook has brought in former Arizona Republican Sen. Jon Kyl to examine allegations of anti-conservative bias and launched a legal audit of its impact on minority communities.
Mr. Kyl, now with the law firm Covington and Burling, will lead a “conservative bias advising partnership” aided by the Heritage Foundation, which will “convene meetings on these issues with Facebook executives,” according to the Tuesday announcement on Axios.
The civil rights audit will be headed by former ACLU legislative director Laura Murphy and conducted by the law firm of Relman, Dane & Colfax, with feedback from groups such as the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights.

The announcement comes a day after more than 60 conservative leaders issued a joint statement declaring that anti-right censorship on social media platforms had “reached a crisis level.” More
