Facebook Rejects Biden Camp's Request To Take Down Trump's False Ad About Ukraine

.

In a letter obtained by TPM (and first reported by the New York Times), Facebook Global Politics and Government Outreach Director Katie Harbath explained the social media giant’s decision to the Biden campaign.

“Our approach is grounded in Facebook’s fundamental belief in free expression, respect for the democratic process, and the belief that, in mature democracies with a free press, political speech is already arguably the most scrutinized speech there is,” Harbath wrote. “Thus, when a politician speaks or makes an ad, we do not send it to third party fact checkers.”

Harbath said the exception would be if a politician shares a “viral hoax” in the form of an article, video, or photo “that has previously been debunked.”

“That is different from a politician’s own claim or statement–even if the substance of that claim has been debunked elsewhere,” she wrote.

3. And thus Facebook becomes a division of Fox News.

"Facts? We don't need your stinkin' facts!"

4. Fuck Facebook!

Mark Zuckerburg is the world's biggest dork. I have a theory that he is getting revenge on the rest of us by enabling Trump. He has always been a dork and always will be, no matter how much money he has. I hate that creepy little motherfucker with a passion. Sorry for the language, but I really, really hate him.

6. Zuck the Facebook Fuck is raking it in

From these anonymous advertisers. His loyalty is to the Golden Calf. And he is happy paying the 10% or so tax rate Republicans gave him.

8. Facebook may suck, but are they getting singled out for this?

People lie in political commercials on TV all the time.

10. Around the same time Zuck made those comments about Warren, FB changed their political ad policies.

12. Facebook makes money from selling data

So they are going to be fully aware of what data is given or not given because data = money. So does anyone seriously believe that Facebook made a mistake by giving Cambridge Analytica all that data?

Zuck is a neonazi fuck.
