Facebook, Thune continue the gaslighting of America

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is appearing before a joint meeting of the Senate Judiciary and Commerce committees Tuesday chaired by Senator John Thune (earth hater-SD).

Thune is saying Facebook has allowed itself to be manipulated but so far has failed to acknowledge his manipulation of the social media giant.

9 May, 2016: former Facebook workers allegedly told Gizmodo they routinely suppressed news from conservative sources.

10 May, 2016: Senator John Thune (earth hater-SD) or somebody hoisted upon his staff wrote a letter to Facebook then he, other earth haters and Republican National Committee chair Reince Priebus teamed up to threaten Facebook. "Senator Thune (R) once opposed the FCC's Fairness Doctrine now wants Q&A with Facebook about its trending topics."
But the bad press wasn’t what really rattled Facebook—it was the letter from John Thune, a Republican US senator from South Dakota, that followed the story’s publication. Thune chairs the Senate Commerce Committee, which in turn oversees the Federal Trade Commission, an agency that has been especially active in investigating Facebook. The senator wanted Facebook’s answers to the allegations of bias, and he wanted them promptly. The Thune letter put Facebook on high alert. The company promptly dispatched senior Washington staffers to meet with Thune’s team. Then it sent him a 12-page single-spaced letter explaining that it had conducted a thorough review of Trending Topics and determined that the allegations in the Gizmodo story were largely false. [WIRED]
Facebook is malware. It gives overwhelmingly to earth hater candidates and has given at least $10k to John Thune.

3,000 ads with Russian links and a virtual “tip of the iceberg,” supported Sanders, Stein and Trump. Some 87,000,000 users were hacked.

The paper trail is clear: John Thune made Congress look the other way as Russia infiltrated Facebook.

Now he's simultaneously saying he's not rushing to slap Facebook with regulation and it's time for congressional oversight of the Zuckerberg empire.

He's the perfect stooge to pull this off.
