Facebook’s Zuckerberg To Give Congress 3,000 Ads Bought By Russian Agency

Facebook says the company will provide the contents of 3,000 ads bought by a Russian agency to congressional investigators.

The move Thursday comes as the company has faced growing pressure from members of Congress to release the content of the ads. Facebook had already released the ads to federal authorities investigating Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

The leaders of the Senate Intelligence Committee have been seeking to bring Facebook executives before their committee since the company first revealed the existence of the ads two weeks ago.

But critics say Facebook should go further. They say the company should tell its users how they might have been influenced by outside meddlers.

    Can they tell us why Hillary and Bill Clinton and Obama and all the people who worked for him such as Eric Holder and the woman who is married to the wiener are not in prison??

    Get him to release Hillary e-mails that will be a great start.

    There are certain pitfalls to capitalism that can be determined to be necessary evils. Selling your product, especially when your product is advertising, must be one of the trickiest. Zuckerberg is basically a liberal guy, so he is being caught between the proverbial rock and hard place in this situation. It seems to me that Zuckerberg is doing the right things as are needed.

    Seems to me that all adds are meant to influence their users. Facebook is no different than any other company money is the bottom line. It is still up to the users if they want to be influenced by any add not Facebook.

    Did they ever investigate the “team” of people Obama sent to Israel to sway the voters against Netanyahu? Just wondering.

    What could a facebook listing tell any American something different than what President Trump himself stated during the Political campaign? The only question i have: Who is authorized to buy political ads from any media in this country?
