Facebook’s “whistleblower” thread has been pulled, and now the front will continue to unravel – to the point that Frances Haugen has been exposed as part of the Big Tech team of censors at the center of election interference. 2020, The Post Millennial a find.
Haugen was a member of Facebook’s Civic Integrity Unit, which was tasked with tackling so-called disinformation (read: strangling politically disadvantaged content) about the 2020 election. In October, that involved censoring reports from the New York Post on Hunter Biden’s laptop, which blamed son Biden and his father for bribery ahead of the hotly contested election.
A few weeks before the November election, the New York Post reported that a laptop containing evidence implicating then-presidential candidate Joe Biden’s son for engaging in shady business relationships overseas surfaced after Hunter Biden ditched him in a computer repair shop in Delaware. Documents from the store appear to show a signed receipt from Hunter for the repairs, and text messages, videos and emails retrieved from the device indicate a “pay-to-play scandal” involving the current president.
Big tech companies like Facebook and Twitter have censored the story, however. Andy Stone, Director of Political Communications for Facebook on Twitter and CEO Mark Zuckerberg in testimony from Congress admitted that the company had suppressed the explosive report.
While I don’t intentionally link to The New York Post, I want to clarify that this story is fact-verified by Facebook’s third-party fact-checking partners. In the meantime, we are reducing its distribution on our platform.

Haugen, who joined Facebook in 2019 on condition of being tasked with censoring “disinformation”, was attributed to the 200-member Civic Integrity Unit, where she worked until after the 2020 presidential election. Haugen and four others, according to at the New York Post, “were tasked with creating a system to track disinformation targeting specific groups of people in just three months,” and after their efforts were crowned with success and Biden won the election, Facebook dissolved unity.
The so-called “whistleblower” has already been confirmed to be a left-wing activist. Shortly after Haugen presented stolen documents lamenting that Facebook is not doing enough to censor hate speech and political dissidents, financial records revealed that she regularly made donations to Democrats, including radicals such as as Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
Haugen’s lawyers are also deeply rooted in leftist corruption. His lawyers were part of the legal team representing the bogus “whistleblower” whose complaint about then-President Donald Trump’s phone call to Ukraine (a call the whistleblower was not aware of firsthand) led to a fictitious impeachment. Now she is receiving “strategic communications advice” from the public relations firm of former Obama aide Bill Burton, Bryson Gillette, which is run by Democratic agents. Jen Psaki, White House Press Secretary was senior advisor there until September 2020.
On Tuesday, Haugen testified before a congressional hearing at least in part to garner legislative support for increased Big Tech censorship. She accused Facebook of putting profits before security by amplifying so-called disinformation – which she says kills people, a talking point you might recognize from Biden’s White House.
“The result has been more divisions, more harm, more lies, more threats and more fighting. In some cases, this dangerous online speech has led to actual violence that injures and even kills people ”, testified Haugen, who also made awakened statements about “inclusion” and “bias” in his previous tech jobs, which included Google and Pinterest. To the latter, she would have pushed the company to give users the ability to “filter searches for specific skin tones.”
Haugen’s lawyers have filed eight complaints against Facebook with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including lamenting that the company is not suppressing hate speech sufficiently and has not deployed “durable countermeasuresOr fight enough against so-called disinformation, right-wing extremism and violence regarding the 2020 elections and the January 6 riot.
The news of Facebook’s “whistleblowers” comes amid widespread Big Tech censorship campaigns and partisan calls for a crackdown on what Democrats call disinformation.
In July, Psaki announcement that because of 12 anonymous people on social networks Posting what the Biden administration considered disinformation, the White House “actively reports problematic Facebook posts that spread disinformation” and “helps” “increase trusted content.” Nothing is “off the table” when it comes to using Big Tech to silence opposing views, she said.
When a reporter asked Biden the same week what his message was to sites like Facebook, the president replied, “They’re killing people.”
