On Wednesday House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) grilled Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg on the company’s targeting and censoring of conservative content.

Facebook has been censoring conservative publishers since the 2016 election of Donald Trump.
It is virtually impossible for major conservative outlets to get their content to spread on Facebook today.

Rep. Steve Scalise: I do want to ask you about a study that was done by Western Journal dealing with the algorithm that Facebook uses to describe what is fed to people through the newsfeed and what they found was after this new algorithm was implemented that there was a tremendous bias against conservative news and content. And a favorable bias towards liberal content. And if you can look at that it shows a 16 point disparity which is concerning… Who develops the algorithm?… You can also put a bias in if that’s the directive. Was there a directive to put a bias in? Are you aware of this bias that many people have looked at and analyzed and seen?

Mark Zuckerberg
: Congressman this is a really important question. There is absolutely no directive in any of the changes that we’ve made.

Of course, that is a lie.
Here is the proof.
