Facebook employees ’strongly object’ to company’s political ad policy

More than 250 Facebook employees wrote a letter addressed to CEO Mark Zuckerberg and top Facebook officials calling Facebook’s political ad policies ’a threat to what FB stands for.’ In the letter, the employees reportedly argue that allowing misinformation to run could increase distrust in Facebook and undermine Facebook’s integrity.

Idiots. What they're saying is that they would like to be the ones who decide what politicians win elections. When they cry about misinformation what they mean is that they are not the ones who get decide what the truth is. The amount of disdainin Silicon Valley for the average American is breathtaking.

Why not just avoid political ads entirely... This isn't good for their business whatsoever. It's in no way worth the revenue.
