Posted on 02/18/2018 3:59:36 AM PST by smileyface
Facebook has come under intense scrutiny as more information has surfaced about how Russian actors used those platforms to spread misinformation online. Facebook VP of ads Rob Goldman said Russian meddling was more to sow distrust and chaos in the U.S. political system than to specifically elect Trump.

To prove his point, he referenced an anti-Islam protest in Houston in November 2017. Russian trolls were later shown to have organized both sides of the protest.
How does any of what these Russian trolls did not amount to nothing more than free speech?
Before Hillary lost everyone knew Russia was doing this to divide America.
After she lost they needed a special prosecutor to enact their coup so they said trump colluded with Russians.
Regardless of whether the intent was to sow distrust or to influence the election, isn’t either justification for implementing the sanctions that Congress passed?
Why should anyone believe the “facts” as presented by Rosenstein/Mueller?
These people sought to overthrow Article II Section 1 of the Constitution.
Whatever they say, count on truth being elsewhere.
NEED TO KNOW: Mueller says he indicted the 13 Ruskis b/c they made "disparaging remarks" about candidate Hillary?
<><> when did Hillary's campaign report this criminality?
<><> who did they report it to?
<><> did the campaign notify voters about the plot?
Wouldn't that make them moderates? THAT should be a crime.
So according to Mueller, Russia tried to create divisions in America along class, religious, gender, and race.
I guess they didn’t realize the political left has been working that side of the street for awhile.
Why would they screw with Hillary she is already selling us out, uranium one and Im sure a host of others we don’t know about yet and she believe like they do a communist dictator is what America needs
So, FACEBOOK colluded with the Russians to influence a U.S. presidential election..??
Muelller thinks we weren’t divded before the Russians came along?
What a stupid man. This is the IQ of the Deep State.
All the way back to the schemers at the Frankfurt School.
If that is all they did, possibly. But what they did amounts to more than free speech. Sedition and likely breaking of other federal law.
comment #2 has broken link for Goldman’s tweet, try
16 Feb: Twitter: Rob Goldman, Facebook
The majority of the Russian ad spend happened AFTER the election. We shared that fact, but very few outlets have covered it because it doesnt align with the main media narrative of Tump and the election.
mind u, the whole story is ridiculous. DNC/Dossier, CTR trolls, Soros-funded activists etc etc.
how does all that compare with a few so-called Russian trolls?
Trump’s on a roll with tweets!
CNBC are a disgrace for no reporting Goldman’s “The majority of the Russian ad spend happened AFTER the election. We shared that fact, but very few outlets have covered it because it doesnt align with the main media narrative of Tump and the election”
the more he FakeNewsMSM are exposed, the digger the hold they dig for themselves.
I guess thats just more of The News We (CNN) Kept To Ourselves [must read]
The point is to spoil it, to create the atmosphere of hate, to make it so stinky that normal people wont want to touch it,
The internet agency was well known and exposed by buzzdeed in 2014, and other media outlets like The NY Times (above link) in 2015 and 2016.
Everybody knew they were trolls, even as far back as 2014.
