HUGE: Facebook Hired Former Hillary Press Director to Inform Media of Alex Jones Ban

The Facebook press contact has extensive work with the Clinton family and Obama White House.

When Big League Politics contacted Facebook to clarify why Alex Jones, Paul Joseph Watson, Laura Loomer, and Milo Yiannopoulos were banned by Facebook and Instagram, we discovered the Facebook employee assigned to handle these communications is the former Press Director of Hillary For America.

Sarah Pollack is the Policy Communications Manager for Facebook who responded to Big League Politics when we sought comment on why Jones, Watson, Loomer, and Yiannopoulos were banned. She explained that users are no longer allowed to share videos or links including videos of Jones, and explained that this decision was made, in part, because Jones interviewed Gavin McInnes on his radio and TV program.

According to her LinkedIn history, Pollack was hired by Facebook in October of 2017 as a Policy Communications Associate Manager, and was promoted to her current role in February of this year.

Prior to joining Facebook, Pollack was the Director of Press Advance for Hillary for America, the presidential campaign of failed Democrat candidate Hillary Clinton. She held this position from March of 2016 until Clinton lost in November of the same year, and worked as a Press Advance Lead for Clinton as far back as June of 2015.

Before this, Pollack worked for Minassian Media Inc., which received nearly $500,000 from the Clinton Foundation during the 2016 election. Its owner, Craig Minassian, was paid $200,000 per year as the Clinton Foundation’s Chief Communications Officer.

Further back, Pollack worked in the Obama White House as a Press Advance Associate in the Department of Scheduling and Advance.

Even further back, Pollack held two more positions at Minassian Media, as a Coordinator and then Associate.

Pollack’s LinkedIn reveals her first position in the workforce was as a Membership Intern for the Clinton Global Initiative.

It is not known if Pollack is the same Facebook employee who gave left wing media advanced notice of their intention to ban Jones, Watson, Loomer, and Yiannopoulos, but she has been the primary point of contact for Big League Politics, and she confirmed via email that she is the main person at Facebook who deals with questions surrounding policy enforcement.

Pollack and Facebook also refused to acknowledge or deny an official relationship with the legally embattled Southern Poverty Law Center, even after the SPLC took credit for last week’s censorship. Facebook did, however, deny mapping to the SPLC’s list of “hate figures” to determine who to allow on Facebook.

The fact that Facebook would hire an obviously partisan individual to explain why Jones is a “hate figure” is stunning, especially considering Clinton referred to Jones by name in a 2016 speech slamming President Donald J. Trump and conservatives.

Clinton made the false claim that Jones believes no children died during the atrocious Sandy Hook School Shooting, which saw over 20 elementary school students lose their lives.

Jones responded in 2016, saying “What they’ve done is create a strawman — a fake Alex Jones — and they’re putting words in his mouth.”

It would appear this practice has made its way from Clinton’s campaign to the mainstream media and now into Facebook’s internal mechanisms.

Facebook Censors Project Veritas Video, Keeping Coronavirus Hysteria in High Gear

Big Brother is ramping up due to coronavirus.

Published

on

Facebook is reportedly throwing a Project Veritas video off of their monolithic social media platform because the video contains information about coronavirus that is unapproved by the political and media establishment.

CNN reporter Oliver Darcy reported that Facebook would be removing the Veritas video from their platform because of nebulous and unspecified policy violations. Veritas founder James O’Keefe blamed Darcy for allegedly being a snitch and attempting to get his video removed from social media platforms.

O’Keefe also blasted New York Times reporter Andrew Jacobs for his moral preening in criticizing his coronavirus reporting.

The controversial video published by Veritas shows O’Keefe talking with boots on the ground at coronavirus testing sites. He talked to Army personnel and health care workers who claimed the pandemic is not as bad as the media and government officials are purporting it to be.

Certain transcripts from the Veritas video can be seen here:

James O’Keefe: “What about the situation itself. Is it as bad as–the media is saying? The whole pandemic?”
New York Army National Guardsman: “Oh no. It’s the flu!”
O’Keefe: “That’s all it is?”
Guardsman: “It’s the flu.”

O’Keefe: “Is it as bad as they’re saying, this pandemic? Everyone’s freaking out. Is it bad, is it overblown by the media, what is it like?”
Medical worker: “Is it what?”
O’Keefe: “Is the media accurately reporting or is it as bad as people are saying?”
Medical worker: “No.”
O’Keefe: “It’s not as bad as the—”
Medical worker: “It’s precautionary.”
O’Keefe: “The media is making it out bigger?”
Medical worker: “Yes.”

O’Keefe’s video has garnered controversy because it goes against the narrative of fear and hysteria that has been pushed by the fake news media, government bureaucrats and official expert class.

“The rollout of our findings does not endorse COVID-19 behavior one way or another, nor do we encourage others. Our goal is to inform the public and allow the public to make judgments on the issues,” O’Keefe said. “Emotionally driven, knee-jerk reactions journalists are the last thing the public should be subjected to in a time of crisis.”

“I realize this will probably upset some, but Project Veritas goes to the front lines to get unfiltered, raw information, to the public. We’re not here to project a narrative or even to draw a conclusion—we don’t even know who the villains are, if any,” O’Keefe added.

Despite Facebook’s reported censorship of the Veritas video, there are no plans for Twitter and YouTube to remove the content from their platforms at the present time.
