Menlo Park, CA – Something very peculiar has been taking place on Facebook’s trending section since presidential candidate Hillary Clinton collapsed at a 9/11 memorial. Immediately after news of the medical emergency broke, the term Hillary Clinton was a top trending story on the social media site, with the trending section revealing that over 1 Million people were “talking about this.”
A cursory search of the term “Hillary Clinton collapse” on September 12 revealed that only 28,992 people were now “talking about this.” Using the search term “Hillary Clinton faints” registered a meager 1,000 people.
Now some could say that perhaps these numbers are accurate; as how can anyone dispute what the almighty Facebook says is truth?
To give some perspective we searched Facebook for the name of one of the writers here at The Free Thought Project; Claire S Bernish — and the results were extremely telling.
“This debate is about more than this one picture, and more than just Facebook as a network,” Solberg wrote in a Facebook post. “It is about the responsibilities large media institutions and platforms have to not pervert or distort reality.”
