Former Youtube software engineer says that “On YouTube, fiction is outperforming reality.” “Invisible force”, not a genuine demand for truth, responsible for videos popularity. An emerging narrative in the MSM is painting the “Big tech backlash” as a result of “Russian meddling” and other “bad actors” like right-wing extremists “abusing” social media platforms.
Guillaume Chaslot, computer programmer and former Youtube employee, is referring to “conspiracy videos” from Alex Jones and Gary Franchi, among others.
According to a report from The Guardian, Youtube videos promoting Donald Trump, and others covering Clinton corruption scandals and pedophilia are being artificially promoted by an “invisible force”.
Chaslot says that “The recommendation algorithm is not optimising for what is truthful, or balanced, or healthy for democracy.”
This is an obvious attempt to flip the narrative, which is the fact that conservative voices are being systematically censored on google, facebook and other platforms. While Chaslot says Alex Jones’ infowars is being promoted by a mysterious “invisible force”, twitter and google have admittedly censored the news outlet.
George Soros echoed Chaslot’s statement when speaking at the World Economic Forum recently. Soros said that Facebook and Google have “far-reaching adverse consequences on the functioning of democracy, particularly on the integrity of elections.”
An emerging narrative in the MSM is painting the “Big tech backlash” as a result of “Russian meddling” and other “bad actors” like right-wing extremists “abusing” social media platforms.
The establishment is attempting to hijack the growing negative view of social media platforms and direct it toward outlets that the elite want to silence.
