This from Alana Goodman in the Washington Free Beacon today:
Facebook cofounder Dustin Moskovitz has poured over $5 million into a network of nonprofits run by Black Lives Matter leader Patrisse Cullors, according to financial disclosure records, raising questions about whether this relationship played a role in the company’s decision to censor unflattering news articles about the activist last week.
The social media giant blocked its users from posting links to a New York Post story that revealed Cullors, a self-described Marxist, spent $3.2 million on high-end real estate as her Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation raked in millions in donations.
Also from the article:
The National Legal and Policy Center, a watchdog group that has been monitoring Facebook’s financial activities and Moskovitz’s charitable records, criticized the company’s decision to block reporting on Cullors.
“We think this, once again, proves freedom of speech is an option not a feature across the Facebook platform, where their corporate interests are placed above the interests of their users at every turn,” said Peter Flaherty, chairman of the NLPC.
