Facebook’s decision to include Breitbart among its select publishers is clarifying, though perhaps not in the way many critics have suggested. It’s not an indicator of secret political bias; instead, it’s a small window into how Mark Zuckerberg and Facebook see the world. Here, the realms of government and media aren’t levers to achieve some ideological goal — they’re mere petri dishes in which to grow the Facebook organism. And when it comes to Facebook and Mr. Zuckerberg’s end game, nothing is more important than growth.
That’s a point well made. Zuckerberg‘s political ideology is based on the way his company works. If anything, I’m impressed by his impenetrable world that prevents him from seeing the politics of other people or be able to embrace any of them himself.
