Ryan Hartwig was a content moderator for nearly two years working for Cognizant, subcontracted by Facebook. He reviewed and deleted groups, pages, posts, comments, and videos for Facebook and Instagram. After noticing many trends that favored liberal viewpoints and banned conservative ideologies, Ryan went public in June 2020. He has done more than 170 interviews and his efforts have led to a criminal referral to the DOJ for Mark Zuckerberg.
Ryan has been working with Social Media Freedom Foundation founder Jason Fyk who filed the first ever Constitutional challenge to Section 230 in April 2022, asserting that it “lacks the lawful exercise of executive, legislative, or judicial oversight, and is arguably unconstitutional in its current form.” In this interview with host Sienna Mae Heath, Facebook whistleblower Ryan Hartwig explains how they have made massive strides and why it may finally go to the Supreme Court as an emergency case.
