The latest hysteria on the left involves Facebook supposedly "colluding' with conservative groups to investigate whether the social media platform is biased against them. See here and here, for example. The subject also came up in this week's House committee hearing about anti-conservative bias on the socials. Several Democrats voiced concerns that conservatives are receiving preferential treatment because Facebook has reached out to groups that have complained about bias -- ranging from shadow bans to demoting posts to removing accounts to fake fact-checking. A Facebook representative at the hearing said they meet with all kinds of groups all the time to listen to their concerns, but that did little to quell the Dems' ALARM! at the thought that Zuck and Co. might be talking to the ENEMY! behind closed doors.

Expect to see more of this in the coming days. The left is terrified that the socials could do a 180 and treat conservatives fairly, and they're not going to tolerate it. Look for a steady drumbeat of stories claiming that the left-wingers are the real victims of bias because, as we all know, if they're not the victims, they're not happy.
