Facebook "whistleblower" is just a political operative


Free BeaconThe Facebook whistleblower who revealed herself in a 60 Minutes interview is getting strategic communications guidance from a top Democratic operative, according to a source with direct knowledge of the relationship, which was confirmed by another half-dozen sources with indirect knowledge of the partnership.In Haugen's public testimony, industry and political insiders see a sophisticated communications campaign intended to put Facebook on defense, from a steady trickle of leaked internal documents that fueled a Wall Street Journal investigative series dubbed "The Facebook Files" to the blockbuster 60 Minutes interview to congressional testimony scheduled to begin Tuesday. Haugen on Sunday also debuted a slick personal website in part to field media requests.

"It does have the appearance of being an incredibly well-orchestrated communications campaign," said the GOP operative Kevin McLaughlin, the former director of the National Republican Senatorial Committee.

It's a campaign to increase censorship of opposition viewpoints from "oppressive" to "totalitarian".
