    The sad part is that it will only lead to more censorship no matter how noble the cause.

    This is a setup by Zuck to force Regulation. The girl is working for Zuck. He wants Gov to take responsibility so he doesn’t have to answer questions anymore.

    “Whistle blower” more like a plant by the Democrats to try and push their agenda of controlling speech. This is a push to control the first amendment. Dont believe anything these clowns say

    She’s an activist, not a whistle blower.

    She has a right to be angry when Facebook disbanded the election team she was a part of.

    I’m honestly shocked that so many people are buying that this woman is a “whistleblower.”

    Seems like US has been grappling with discrimination against women and girls since the beginning. Like every issue over there finally boils down to women/girls rights and their empowerment. I have no gripe against that and, perhaps, it’s for the good change. But it’s interesting to know that a country touted to have its people live their dreams and express their freedom of expression like no other country in the world regardless of their gender status, has actually such basic but critic issues domestically.

    Zuck should be sentenced to continuously watch 30 years of the same spam and “viral” content they promote inside a windowless prison.

    While these companies should be held accountable for the social stigmas of these apps on people and girls, so should the parents of these children for allow them to use these apps and devices in the first place.

    This “whistleblower” was part of the working group that censored the Hunter Biden Laptop Scandal. She is a fraud.

    Don’t be blinded by this people she straight up said that she wants to control Facebook… what she said isn’t news we all know social media is bad 🙄 parents do your job not Facebook you guys buy phones for your kids. Government wants to control what you see thats the truth.

    Social media has definitely got too big for there boots and they need to be controlled. It’s not fair for people to be harmed by it. I wonder what Facebook wants to achieve overall? Because there seems no end

  31. Eliseo Rocha

    Facebook: “We support the changes you want. But we won’t implement them unless we’re forced to.”

    CNET team – don’t you care about public sway?
    this video is only titles.
    I am concerned about facebook policies, but I can make no new understanding when I hear only titles, no evidence presented to claims in this video, we didn’t even get the facebook side of the story.

    You claim there is interference in personal data viewing that promotes the user to “fix” something that isn’t there? man, your vague.

    Please always add:
    1. a complete set of claims on one title.
    2. sources.
    3. at the end you can offer personal opinion

    Failure means public sway that is directed by your finance, sorry, but that’s how I see it.

    Reeks of false flag. No changes in the Facebook Twitter Instagram monopolies will result. Can’t prove it but I get the feeling this whistleblower was planned.

  39. Zachary Freeman

    Are we really calling this “whistle blowing”, did we really not already know all this?

    Imagine planting your own whistleblower to expose yourself for not censoring enough so you can censor more.

  41. Maria J C de Souza

    October 7, 2021 at 8:24 pm

    When a whistleblower gets immediate attention, a 60 minutes interview and a congressional hearing, while most whistleblowers go to jail, you have to question what’s being presented. She’s ultimately asking for government to take more control of social media. The under the radar government control of social media will be elevated to “necessary”.

  42. Caden Churchill

    Thank you so much for sharing and providing another way for this story to get out. This is so disturbing and really hope the government actually holds Facebook accountable for everything they’ve done. Also HUGE respect for the woman who spoke out!
