Corrupt Republicans Ignore Russia Scandal But Go After Online Anti-Fracking Ads

Obama warned Zuckerberg about fake news

Obama warned Zuckerberg about fake news

Facebook was not "anti-Trump", Facebook is a platform.

"Facebook was always anti-Trump.The Networks were always anti-Trump hence, Fake News, New York Times (apologized) & Washington Post were anti-Trump".

It's just the latest evidence of Russia's attempts to meddle in the election and rile up opposition to Hillary Clinton on Facebook, a campaign that has already been revealed to include ads seen by 70 million people and creating pro-Trump flash mobs in swing states.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg initially said it was "crazy" to think false information spread on the social platform had an effect on the election's outcome, but his company has now turned over 3,000 Russia-linked ads to committees charged with investigating Moscow's meddling in USA politics.

Trump, however, put a positive spin on his time in office so far in a follow-up tweet.

Reports of Shooting at Tennessee Church
Metropolitan Nashville police spokesman Don Aaron identified the suspect as 25-year-old Emanuel Kidega Samson of Murfreesboro. Please join me in praying for the victims of today's church shooting in Antioch, victims' families and their community.

It is also important to note that he is the person in charge of investigating Russia's involvement in the elections from past year.

"In light of Facebook's disclosure of over $100,000 in social media advertising associated with Russian accounts focused on the disruption and influence of USA politics through social media, it is likely that Russia undertook a similar effort using social media to influence the US energy market", Smith wrote.

A House committee asked the chief executive officers of Facebook Inc. Russia's communications watchdog has threatened to block access to Facebook next year if the company does not store its data locally.

Trump himself has previously praised Facebook and credited it with helping him win the November election.

Facebook also found about 2,000 ads run by accounts that were registered through American internet addresses.
