With two audits and new A.I., can Facebook fix its discrimination problems?
After the recent farce of a congressional hearing about "anti-conservative bias" on social media, Facebook wants the world to know it's still taking this alleged issue seriously.
Facebook shared Wednesday that it will undergo a thorough political bias review, led by former Republican senator Jon Kyl and his lobbying firm, Covington and Burling. According to the firm's website, Kyl is an expert in helping corporations navigate domestic and international policy. The conservative think tank Heritage Foundation will also take part in the independent review.
