The discussion about human influence in story selection for trending topics on Facebook reached an absurdist low this morning in a New York Times account:

On Thursday, critics urged the company to consider the biases of its editors.

“As long as Facebook is hiring editors who lean left politically, those stories are going to get preferential treatment,” Erick Erickson, former editor in chief of the conservative website RedState and founder of another conservative site called The Resurgent, said in an email. “I’d hope that Facebook would take care to consider all views and all news.”

PS: Just noted on my Facebook page recommendations for people to follow: one national  liberal, one national right-wing nut, one local right-wing nut.
