Ryan Hartwig is a Facebook Insider with Project Veritas
Ryan graduated from Arizona State University in 2015 with a bachelors degree in Spanish Linguistics. More recently, as a content moderator for Facebook, Ryan wore a hidden camera to expose the extreme bias and censorship happening on a daily basis.
“I risked my livelihood and my privacy to let the world know what is happening behind closed doors at one of the largest tech companies in the world.
I struggled with the decision to go public because it puts my family’s privacy and safety at risk. Ultimately, I decided the truth is more important than my personal privacy.
I’m a firm believer in the 1st amendment and I know of its vital importance in today’s society. I will always stand up for the rights and liberties of my fellow Americans.
If you ever wondered why your political posts got taken down, now you know why. Globally, Facebook stifles free speech, suppresses political movements and picks and chooses winners and losers. This has to stop. One company cannot control elections and the flow of information in a free society.
I was seeing them interfering on a global level in elections. I saw blatant exceptions that just targeted conservatives or favored liberals, and we’re deleting on average 300 posts or actioning 300 posts a day.”

Our guest today is Ryan Hartwig. Ryan is a Facebook Insider with Project Veritas, whose work has been cited in Congressional Hearings on 7.28.20 by Congressman Matt Gaetz.
Ryan graduated from Arizona State University in 2015 with a bachelors degree in Spanish Linguistics. More recently, Ryan took a job as a content moderator for Facebook. After watching the extreme bias and censorship he witnessed on a daily basis, he made the decision to wear a hidden camera to expose what was happening within the Social Media giant.
1) The stark contrast between what Mark Zuckerberg testified in Congress about in April 2018 and what you witnessed.
2) Is hate speech a subjective term?
3) You found it be almost impossible to discuss immigration on Facebook. Talk to us about that struggle and why you think it is such a difficult topic.
4) Labeling and rhetoric are protected under the 1st Amendment, but you were seeing an imbalance in what was allowed or banned on Facebook. For example, you mentioned off air that anti-police rhetoric is allowed, but anti-Antifa rhetoric is not.
5) 3D printing–Facebook’s policy related to that.
