    CNN Reliable Sources just mentioned Facebook employees that say they were instructed to filter out conservative stories from FB news feed.

    This is going on in many different places. Tyson falsely portrayed Bush's post 9-11 as an attempt to sow devision between Christians and Muslims. Bush's actual speech was a call for tolerance and inclusion. Exactly the opposite of the opportunistic xenophobe Tyson imagined.

    Sean Davis called out Tyson and he eventually admitted the false story came from him conflating the Space Shuttle Columbia disaster with 9-11. He apologized to Bush for misrepresenting his message.

    This Tyson gaffe has been systematically censored from Wikipedia by Wikipedia's editors. See Adler's column in the Washington Post: https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/volokh-conspiracy/wp/2014/09/24/what-makes-an-accusation-wiki-worthy/
