Every time you think Facebook's Sheryl Sandberg can't look any worse, more news comes out. nytimes.com/2018/11/14/tec…
Here’s the twist: Facebook’s anti-Soros line of defense was led by the firm run by that “Pod Save America” guy.
Good time to remind everyone that Facebook (unlike Twitter) has still never released the names of the fake Russian accounts it took down.
Despite multiple reports to the contrary, Facebook claims no one ever "discouraged @alexstamos from looking into Russian activity" newsroom.fb.com/news/2018/11/n…
Facebook 'hired a firm that “in this moment would throw gasoline on anti-Semitic flames around Soros and the idea that this Jewish donor controls the world.”' qz.com/1464453/just-l…
Statement from Color of Change, which FB tried to tar as Soros-backed:

Facebook is now “part of the same ecosystem that fed fever dreams of Cesar Sayoc, accused of targeting Soros and others with pipe bombs, and Robert Bowers, who massacred 11 Jews in a Pittsburgh synagogue.”
Color of Change is demanding that Facebook fire Kaplan, release opposition research (“so that we can understand the full extent Facebook went to undermine civil rights work”), and release data on voter suppression attempts on the platform:
We've known for months that Sheryl Sandberg wasn't happy with Facebook's attempts to uproot fake Russian pages. This was from March:
'Self-regulation has failed, and Facebook can no longer be trusted with it.' washingtonpost.com/news/democracy…
‘Facebook appears less a company outside the bounds of big-money P.R. and politics than one operating squarely within them’ newyorker.com/news/daily-com…
“Why does our company suck at having a moral compass?” bloomberg.com/news/articles/…
More details on how Facebook’s PR team pushed anti-Soros rhetoric: nytimes.com/2018/11/15/tec…
Maybe @crookedmedia isn’t going to part ways with Tim Miller after all. (Note the retweet.)
The phrase "digging your own grave" comes to mind in this brutal interview with Sheryl Sandberg. Yeesh. cbsnews.com/news/sheryl-sa…
Facebook has 'what can only be described as an astonishing cluelessness and moral rot in the company’s top executive leadership.' washingtonpost.com/blogs/post-par…
Might be a good time to just publish that "background document" that tried to link Soros to Facebook critics. medium.com/@Timodc/settin…
‘This spring, Mr. Zuckerberg told Ms. Sandberg, 49, that he blamed her and her teams for the public fallout over Cambridge Analytica’ wsj.com/articles/with-…
‘Have tech share prices already discounted the worsening backlash in full? For Facebook, even at a depressed 20 times forward earnings, the answer has to be No.’ ft.com/content/f18735…
‘“Did we ask them to do work on George Soros?” Mr. Schrage wrote in the memo, a draft of which had circulated online earlier in the week. “Yes.”’ nytimes.com/2018/11/22/bus…
And here’s Facebook’s admission that it specifically looked for evidence that opposition to Facebook was funded by Soros: newsroom.fb.com/news/2018/11/e…
“Tim will no longer be a contributor to Crooked Media.”
'The possibility of a duty to leave Facebook arises once one recognizes that Facebook has played a significant role in undermining democratic values around the world.' nytimes.com/2018/11/24/opi…
'[Sheryl Sandberg] would sooner downplay Facebook’s involvement in a national security crisis than compromise the integrity of her reputation.' nytimes.com/2018/11/23/opi…
Facebook 'was incorrectly promising advertisers that it could reach more 18-34-year-olds in America than actually exist there.' economist.com/business/2018/…
