You reasonable folks on the left... disconnect from these hyperpartisan tools like Spambot. Its plain as day that this practice was begun in the 2012 election by the Obama team.

There is no debate about it. It is factual. The Obama team was proud of it. Hillary had it and used it too.

moRon doesn't understand the difference between a data breach and data that has been solicited and voluntarily provided.

Go figure.

Hopefully we can come together now at the precipice and reevaluate the society we really want to live in.

How do they always manage to get things back-ass-wards around here?

A Facebook mining op was pro Trump? Not a chance.

Yeah, because everybody knows Robert Mercer and Steve Bannon are liberals who are in the tank with Hillary.

How do you manage to function while living in a state of such pathological denial and delusion?

I see no evidence that der gaffo can function. He's just a paid mouthpiece for Putin.

Douthat pouring out some hard truths...

https://www.nytimes.com/2018/03/21/o...ica-media.html

Quote:
But the liberal establishment’s fixation on Facebook’s 2016 sins — first the transmission of fake news and now the exploitation of its data by the Trump campaign or its appendages — still feels like a classic example of blaming something new because it’s new when it’s the old thing that mattered more. Or of blaming something new because you thought that “new” meant “good,” that the use of social-media data by campaigns would always help tech-savvy liberals and not their troglodytic rivals — and the shock of discovering otherwise obscures the more important role that older forms of media played in making the Trump era a reality.

No doubt all the activity on Facebook and the apparent use of Facebook’s data had some impact, somewhere, on Trump’s surprise victory. But the media format that really made him president, the one whose weaknesses and perversities and polarizing tendencies he brilliantly exploited, wasn’t Zuckerberg’s unreal kingdom; it wasn’t even the Twitter platform where Trump struts and frets and rages daily. It was that old pre-internet standby, broadcast and cable television, and especially TV news.

...

Nothing that Cambridge Analytica did to help the Trump campaign target swing voters (and there’s reason to think it didn’t do as much as it claimed) had anything remotely like the impact of this #alwaysTrump tsunami, which probably added up to more than $2 billion in effective advertising for his campaign during the primary season, a flood that drowned all of his rivals’ pathetic tens of millions. And as cynical as I believe the lords of Silicon Valley to be, the more important cynicism in 2016 belonged to those television execs who were fine with enabling the wild Trumpian takeover of the G.O.P., because after all Republicans deserved it and Hillary was sure to beat him in the end.

Except that she didn’t beat him, in part because he also exploited the polarization that cable news, in particular, is designed to feed. In 2016 this polarization didn’t just mean that Fox became steadily more pro-Trump as he dispatched his G.O.P. rivals; it also meant that a network like CNN, which thrives on Team Red vs. Team Blue conflict, felt compelled to turn airtime over to Trump surrogates like Jeffrey Lord and Corey Lewandowski and Kayleigh McEnany because their regular stable of conservative commentators (I was one of them) simply wasn’t pro-Trump enough.

L0L.

Leave it to Beaver to attempt to equate a data breach (to say nothing of the concomitant bribery and extortion) with data which has been solicited and voluntarily provided.

Anything to cover for the Dear Leader and his accomplices, eh?

Says the fluffer for the most divisive POTUS in U.S. history.

A POTUS who owes 100% of his electoral success to appeals to racism, bigotry, xenophobia and misogyny.
