FACEBOOK CAUGHT WITH PANTS DOWN!!! Sept 6 FB Statement re Russian ads: “Ads did not reference particular candidate.” Sept 25 WaPo article: “Ads highlighted support for Democrat Hillary Clinton.” All Russian roads lead to DNC. MUELLER, WTF ARE YOU DOING???
These were ads, shown in public. Now, they won’t show them to the public. It is beyond a doubt who these ads supported.
Kicker is this”
“ad spending from June 2015 to May 2017”
So these “divisive” ads ran from a year before Trump was even the GOP candidate, to 7 months after he already won the election.
“ads took advantage of Facebook’s ability to send contrary messages to different groups of users based on their political and demographic characteristics”
These ads pandered to voters based on demographic characteristics that could be found on FB, such as race, sex, and religion.
Anyone who believes these ads were on behalf of Trump needs their head examined.
