Facebook, Instagram: Disingenuous Disinformation

Both Democrats and Republicans recognize that the misinformation on social media is hurting Americans, but making sure the Securities and Exchange Commission or SEC can develop strong regulatory policies, will require the political class working together.  

Whistleblower Frances Haugen says that Facebook and Instagram’s social network’s algorithm “sows division and undermines democracy in pursuit of breakneck growth and ‘astronomical profits.’”

But all those “astronomical profits” will be working to make sure that doesn’t happen thanks to the unproven danger of unregulated money in politics unleashed in 2010 with Citizens United v FEC.
