Zuckerberg has to answer for this

Apparently, Facebook was going above and beyond in helping the trump campaign digital operations.

1. This is SOP for any massive series of buys

Whether you're MSNBC, GM, Ford, or running a big ass campaign.

What will you say when you learn that Democrats received the same kind of assistance?

Burn them at the stake too, I hope.

2. Combined with the fact they denied selling ads to Russians, yeah it's worth answering

And if something is standard operating procedure that makes it ok? You can justify a lot with that approach can't you? Or did you just get your feelings hurt because you're a fan of Markie? Your over the top response certainly indicates that as I never said anything about burning them at the stake. All I said is he has to answer for it, along with the false denials.

3. Wow, you just went off the deep end quickly.

"Fan of Markie?"

Right to trying to insult someone. My ignore list grows!

At this point there's just so many people that don't quite grasp how so many things work and operate, as evidenced by all the "GET OUT OF FLORIDA NOW" posts and the like. And having watched reactions to anything tech oriented in the slightest here over the years there's also a flavor of luddite to be had.

5. Burn the at the stake wasn't off the deep end?

Not an insult just trying to figure out why your response was so over the top. Then you let fly with insults. It's probably good you put me on ignore.

7. I enjoy how you hold others to a higher standard than you hold yourself to.

"You can justify a lot with that approach can't you? Or did you just get your feelings hurt because you're a fan of Markie? Your over the top response certainly..."

Followed by:

"Then you let fly with insults...."

seems rather incongruous; but I imagine the discrepancy will be rationalized most creatively.

4. The denials concerned me,

Seems they were determined to save face instead of coming clean earlier.

It would have been difficult for them to know at the time though because buying ads on FB is an automated process. Hard to pin point who is doing what at the moment of transaction - although when the Clinton campaign touched base with them about the possibly that the proliferation of trolls were Kremlin funded operations , I would have thought they'd thoroughly investigate it then and nip it in the bud. I don't know if they wondered how that would conflict with their fiduciary duty to customers at the time.

Stil, the denials are curious.

6. So by doing this interview, does this woman leave herself vulnerable to

any sort of allegations of participating in treason?
