Weird how if Donald Trump ridicules the media he’s suddenly a threat to press freedom, but when this idiot vomits up nonsense like this nobody bats an eyelash.
Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton pushed on Thursday for Facebook to “own up” to its role in allowing fake news to spread after the platform revealed it had published thousands of political ads over the past two years that were linked to fake Russia-based accounts.
“We may have our disagreements among Americans, we’re not going to let the Russians come in and divide us. And so we’re going to make Facebook own up to everything. They’ve just begun to own up. They have a long way to go before they get to where they need to be, in my opinion,” Clinton told MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow.
Um, who is this “we” and how are they going to make Facebook do anything?
“Other tech companies, we’re going to go after these provocateurs, these Russians posing as Americans, these content farms in Macedonia, these thousand trolls, these tens of thousands of bots, because you know what, we have every right to have a rigorous debate in America, but we don’t want it being interfered with and suborned by Putin and his allies,” she continued.
So how do they plan to “go after” them? This she doesn’t elaborate on, because it’s all just bluster from someone desperately clinging to relevance.
Trump, meanwhile, criticizes some slob who called him a white supremacist and he’s a threat to media freedom, or something.
