Facebook Says Probe Found No Evidence Of Bias

Facebook announced today that it has completed a thorough investigation of itself and found no evidence of wrongdoing. Ever. For anything. Why is the letter written by Facebook's lawyer? Who cares?

Our investigation has revealed no evidence of systematic political bias in the selection or prominence of stories included in the Trending Topics feature. Our data analysis indicated that conservative and liberal topics are approved as trending topics at virtually identical rates. We were also unable to substantiate any of the specific allegations of politically-motivated suppression of particular subjects or sources. In fact, we confirmed that most of the subjects mentioned in media reports were included as trending topics on multiple occasions.
