Someone with connections to Facebook gave the New York Times an inside glimpse into the mind of the operators at Facebook, and how they believe that President Donald J. Trump may claim victory after the 2020 Presidential election, and if he does they will need to stop him no matter how rouge he goes.
The New York Times appears to be making up a story and then reporting a reaction to their own story as if it is real, with anonymous information from political allies.
This is ironic because at the same time Youtube has announced a new crackdown on information from regular people about candidates that appears to be unofficial.
There is no way for DJHJMedia to confirm if the New York Times story is true, however, it is noteworthy that the New York Times chose to promote the message that Trump is dangerous and may claim victory in Biden’s obvious win, in their story, “Facebook Braces Itself...”
According to Just the News, who covered the New York Times article on the matter, “The Times [said there ] is a “kill switch” that would shut down all political advertising on the site the day after Election Day.”
Breaking News: Facebook is laying out contingency plans in case President Trump attempts to delegitimize election results, including a political ad “kill switch" https://t.co/ZvXHsjkSyh

Facebook did not comment directly on the allegations in the New York Times report, though they made the following statement to the NYT: “We continue to plan for a range of scenarios to make sure we are prepared for the upcoming election.”
It is all very mysterious, isn’t it? So the NYT is able to use Facebook to plant a few seeds in order to discredit President Trump, based on anonymous sources who say they work for Facebook, and that they are ready to handle Trump one way or the other, no matter what he does.
That passes as justice to the left.
In the meantime for regular American posters, there is no such luxury.
Epoch Times reported the following:
“Online video platform YouTube has started banning content that includes information obtained by “hacking” and that “may interfere with democratic processes, such as elections and censuses,” the company announced on Aug. 13.”
It seems to be a lot of positioning to handle a very large “October surprise”.
