Facebook’s Heading Toward a Bruising Run-In With the Russia Probe

Quote
The Facebook campaign also seems to include the first evidence of Russian operatives attempting to organize actual political events on American soil, as opposed to just spreading memes and fake news on the web...

Facebook has said that it can’t release its findings because that would violate its own ‘internal policies’ which protect user privacy. That’s rich...

Quote
Facebook is so accustomed to treating its ‘internal policies’ as though they were something like laws that they appear to have a sort of blind spot that prevents them from seeing how ridiculous their resistance sounds. To use the cliche, it feels like a real shark jumping moment. As someone recently observed, Facebook’s ‘internal policies’ are crafted to create the appearance of civic concerns for privacy, free speech, and other similar concerns. But they’re actually just a business model. Facebook’s ‘internal policies’ amount to a kind of Stepford Wives version of civic liberalism and speech and privacy rights...

That's not going to wash.

The embarrassing part of the story is that Zuckerberg sold out America so cheaply.

Never look at the conductor. You just encourage them.

I suspect, and think I heard in passing, that a lot of the ads involved were handled as strictly electronic transactions with little, if any, human oversight after the original programs were written. Search warrants will get much deeper into this than the Congressional subpeons did, and FB is going to have to do a much better job of self examination. They may have commited Criminal Negligence.
