On Russia, Facebook Sends a Message It Wishes It Hadn’t

Tuesday 07:02 GMT

(Trust me, I’ve tried.) But it’s deeply troubling that eight months before the 2018 midterms, as malicious forces continue to use social media to sow discord and meddle in elections all over the world, some at Facebook seem more interested in defending themselves from criticism than owning their mistakes, fixing their platform’s problems and protecting our democracy.

Why should it reassure us that most of Russia’s Facebook advertising was purchased after the election, rather than telling us that Facebook continued to drop the ball even after it knew it had a Russia problem?
