Is Facebook trying to steal the 2018 Election?
Members of Congress grilled CEO Mark Zuckerberg this week over the company’s data privacy issues and also for the network’s alleged bias against conservatives.
During one of the hearings, Zuckerberg said combating election interference was one of his top priorities this year and that he has more confidence that Facebook’s going to “get this right this year.”
So what exactly does Mark Zuckerberg mean by right? He means the public was wrong when it chose Trump in 2016, that Trump supporters should be punished, and that Zuckerberg will do everything in his power to prevent politically incorrect election choices from happening again. That’s what he means.
So Democrats are still dwelling over the $100,000 Russians spent on Facebook ads during the 2016 election. They use this paltry number as proof that Trump’s election win wasn’t fair or democratic. But they forget to mention that the ads purchased promoted causes from both side. The purpose was clearly to amplify discord.
But the left doesn’t want to talk about that because it doesn’t fit their narrative.
