Top Obama official advises anti-Trump Facebook ‘whistleblower’

Facebook whistleblower Frances HaugenWho wants conservative content to be outright banned or eliminated in the shadows, is working with former Obama Deputy Press Secretary Bill Burton and his consulting firm, Bryson Gillette.

According to the Free Beacon, Burton’s involvement in managing Haugen’s public debut suggests that her speech is part of a broader democratic initiative. That much is clear when you listen to Haugen attack those who question the 2020 election. It smells like another Democratic operation.

Burton does not believe in free speech in America. She wants to master thought and content online. This makes her an instrument of the left.

Eliana Johnson at The Free Beacon reported:

The Facebook whistleblower who revealed himself in a 60 Minutes interview is receiving strategic communications guidance from a top Democratic official, according to a source with direct knowledge of the relationship, which was confirmed by half a dozen more sources with indirect knowledge of the partnership.

Frances Haugen, the former Facebook employee who spent the past 10 months passing internal documents to a top Wall Street Journal reporter, and who revealed her identity in a prime-time broadcast on Sunday, is working with the political adviser and former deputy press secretary of the Obama administration Bill Burton and his consulting firm, Bryson Gillette. It’s unclear when Haugen’s relationship with Burton and Bryson Gillette began, how large her communications team is, and whether it includes other political agents.

But Burton is now deeply integrated with an emerging infrastructure on the left, made up of individuals and organizations, including the nonprofit Human Technology Center, who want to pressure Facebook into more aggressively controlling political content.

In Haugen’s public testimony, industry and political insiders see a sophisticated communications campaign designed to serve Facebook in defense of a steady stream of leaked internal documents that sparked a Wall Street Journal investigative series called “The Facebook Files.” to the blockbuster 60 Minutes interview to congressional testimony slated to begin Tuesday. Haugen also debuted a slick personal website on Sunday, in part for field media requests.

“It appears to be an incredibly well-orchestrated communications campaign,” said GOP agent Kevin McLaughlin, the former director of the National Republican Senatorial Committee.
