This is funny as hell. Soros, the New York Times, and Facebook are all on the same leftwing side of the political spectrum , but they’re at each other’s throats. Liberal cannibalism is very entertaining.
From Fox News
Facebook slammed a blockbuster New York Times report for “inaccuracies” and cut ties with a GOP-opposition firm after the newspaper painted a scathing portrait of Mark Zuckerberg and Sheryl Sandberg, the company’s top leaders.
In a 6,100-word story, the Times reports that over a two-year period, the social network’s tactics were to delay, deflect and deny as it faced increasing scrutiny over Russian disinformation and the corrosive spread of hate speech.
In a Thursday blog post, the Menlo Park, Calif.-based social media giant took issue with numerous aspects of the Times piece, which claimed that Facebook was too slow to investigate Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election and questioned the company’s handling of comments made in 2015 by then-Presidential candidate Donald Trump regarding a Muslim ban. The report also claims that the company’s leadership was not quick enough to combat the growing menace of fake news on its platform.
The only Russian interference in the 2016 election occurred between the DNC lobbyists, Russia, and the Obama cabal.
The leftwing Deep State really didn’t believe Trump would win the election. As an ‘insurance policy‘ during the campaign, the FBI, James Comey, the Hillary campaign, a reprobate former MI6 agent, and the Obama regime all had a hand in producing and paying for a lurid, fabricated dossier which was then used to secure a warrant from the FISA court under fraudulent claims, to spy on the Trump campaign.
Former MI6 operative, Christopher Steele, was hired by Fusion GPS, a corporate espionage firm, to dig up dirt on Trump but came up with a fabricated smear instead. Not deterred by the total implausibility of the story described in the dossier, GPS shopped the dossier to the liberal media and paid journos to feed the fake story to the press with predictable results; the left wing morons at Buzzfeed and CNN jumped at the chance to print the fake news. The FBI even offered $50,000 to Steele for information.
The Obama regime paid almost one million dollars to the same law firm that funneled money to GPS. Somewhere in that mess is RINO John McCain, who received the dossier from a former British ambassador to Moscow.
The Mueller clusterfuck is two fold: The fake dossier was tried and failed, then they used the planted story about the Trump campaign having inside knowledge of the Russians possessing Hillary’s emails. They also inserted a mole into the Trump campaign.
Obama weaponized government agencies. to subvert and disrupt the election process.
Facebook never bothered to investigate any of that.
In its blog post, Facebook said that both Sandberg and Zuckerberg “have been deeply involved in the fight against false news.”
The social network also fired back over the company’s response to Russian election meddling. “The story asserts that we knew about Russian activity as early as the spring of 2016 but were slow to investigate it at every turn. This is not true,” it said.
With regard to its handling of Trump’s Muslim ban comments, the tech giant said “to suggest that the internal debate around this particular case was different from other important free speech issues on Facebook is wrong.”
However, in a statement to Fox News, a spokesperson for the Times did not retract any of the conclusions in the report, saying:
“Our story is accurate and we stand by it. The monthslong investigation by a team of reporters was based on interviews with more than 50 sources including current and former Facebook executives and other employees, lawmakers and government officials, lobbyists and congressional staff members.”
Facebook cut ties Wednesday evening with Definers Public Affairs amid the ongoing outcry over the Times story, but claimed the newspaper is “wrong to suggest that we ever asked Definers to pay for or write articles on Facebook’s behalf — or to spread misinformation.” Facebook acknowledges that Definers did “encourage members of the press to look into the funding of Freedom from Facebook,” an umbrella activist group that has called for the tech firm to be broken up on anti-trust grounds. However, Facebook says that encouragement was to demonstrate that Freedom from Facebook is “not a spontaneous grassroots campaign, but supported by a well-known critic of our company [George Soros].”
While it’s true that Soros, who made his fortune in hedge funds, has given money to one of the ten organizations supporting Freedom from Facebook’s efforts and once called the platform a “menace” to society, the financier and philanthropist has owned shares of Facebook this year through his investment fund.
Meanwhile, Open Society Foundations President Patrick Gaspard sent an open letter to Facebook’s executive leadership, board members and Congressional leaders denouncing the company’s efforts to “spread vile propaganda” about Soros — a frequent target of anti-Semitic conspiracy theories who saw a pipe bomb delivered to his home last month — as “astonishing” and “beyond the pale.” Founded by Soros, Open Society Foundations works in over 100 countries around the world to ensure that governments are accountable to their citizens.
“These efforts appear to have been part of a deliberate strategy to distract from the very real accountability problems your company continues to grapple with. This is reprehensible, and an offense to the core values Open Society seeks to advance,” Gaspard wrote, adding that he would like to meet with Facebook’s leadership in person to discuss the matter further. “But at bottom, this is not about George Soros or the foundations. Your methods threaten the very values underpinning our democracy.”
Background on Soros:
He’s wealthy because his hedge funds operate offshore in the Netherlands Antilles away from scrutiny of the Securities and Exchange Commission.
He facilitates various organizations, foundations, and financial sources as tools for an empire designed to mold the world to his own warped vision. His accomplishments include trying to silence media opponents, funding ACORN, financing his vision of a post-America New World Order, and spreading his malignant Fabian socialist ideology throughout economic and political infrastructures.
The New York Times editorial staff reads like the Who’s Who of the Fifth Column. One of their reporters was caught organizing for the ‘Occupy’ thugs. The rag performed fellatio on Obama for 8 years. They declared that any speech you dislike is ‘an act of violence’.
One of their hacks smeared military veterans as “KKK”, another contributor insisted that America should get rid of the Constitution, and at least one of their former editors admitted that their Prog world view ‘bleeds through the paper’s fabric’.
When the dust clears from this leftie lover’s spat, nothing will change.
