Facebook busts Israel-based campaign to disrupt elections

Facebook says it has identified a private Israel-based influence campaign aimed at disrupting elections in various countries and has deleted dozens of accounts engaged in spreading disinformation. The tech giant said it had purged 65 accounts, 161 pages and dozens of groups. The accounts primarily posed as political candidates and peddled fake news about elections, mostly in Sub-Saharan Africa.

Does this mean Facebook will end it's own election meddling then? You know, the one where they silence their political opposition? Unlikely.

This was a private Co. Good job (Zionist-owned, some say) FB for busting it. Remember when BHO's administration meddled in foreign elections: https://spectator.org/obamas-meddling-in-foreign-elections-six-examples/
