Facebook pro-censorship ‘whistleblower’ launches nonprofit


Frances Haugen, the Facebook “whistleblower” with a long history of left-wing activism, who was elevated to celebrity status by the media after she began publicly criticizing the tech giant for not censoring enough, officially launched his non-profit organization.

Unlike previous Facebook whistleblowers like Ryan Hartwig, Cassandra Spencerand Zach McElroy, who exposed the tech company’s censorship apparatus and were largely ignored by politicians and the media, Haugen was asked to testify before legislatures around the world, received a book deal, and received support from left-wing billionaires like Pierre Omidyar.

It’s the treatment you get when you’re a Big Tech employee who thinks the industry’s biggest problem is that it doesn’t censor enough.

Breitbart News’ Lucas Nolan reported on Haugen’s ambitions to launch a nonprofit earlier this year. It seems that she has achieved this goal.

By AFP:

Whistleblower Frances Haugen — a former Facebook engineer who leaked documents suggesting the company put profits before safety — launched an organization on Thursday dedicated to fighting the harm caused by social media.

New nonprofit Beyond the Screen said its first project would be to document big tech’s failures to meet its “legal and ethical obligations to society” and help find ways to address those issues.

“We can have social media that brings out the best in us, and that’s what Beyond the Screen is working towards,” Haugen said in a statement.

Since she was first catapulted into the limelight by a media establishment that recognized a fellow traveler, it has emerged that Haugen was part of the same Facebook team that censored the story of the Hunter Biden laptop, an act that some studies have shown had a defining effect. on voter opinion ahead of the 2020 election.
