It's in response to the political firestorm when Facebook was accused of censoring conservative stories on its trending news section.

Facebook found itself at the center of a political firestorm a few months ago – it was accused of censoring conservative stories on its trending news section.

But COO Sheryl Sandberg revealed last week that the company will offer classes to employees on how to manage their political biases.

That's in addition to the classes it already has on race bias, age bias, gender bias and more.
