    No. If you want "dee-moo-crazy to reegoolate fece-book", take your square ass head to china or somewhere else. Nobody wants you here. Get lost.

    Facebook not wanting to "cencor" political ads has nothing to do with free speech and everything to do with their business model. You can be a politician (or pundit) on twitter and be quite successful at it regardless of whether you spend money on ads or not. That's just not the case for Facebook.
    FB used to be a great platform for creatives, semi-professionals and content creators back in the day. If your content was good, your reach would be good. Today you'll typically have an organic reach of about ~2-3% of your follower count with any given post. Going viral is pretty much impossible unless you dig into your bank account. What people need to understand is that this is how Facebook has been monetizing its user base.

    If Facebook were to say no to political ads without altering their algorithm you'd never see a political message in your feed. Even Donald Trump with his 20+ million followers would only reach a few hundred thousand of them no matter how outrageous he gets, because it's NOT about engagement, it's about how willing you are to pay for reach.

    Without changing their algorithm, Facebook would effectively be giving up on the political discourse. If they change the algorithm, they'll not only feel it directly on the bottom line, but the Facebook stock will most likely plummet as well. Zuckerberg knows this, the Facebook board knows this, and that's why they want to keep running political ads – not some bulls*it argument about free speech.

    Remember when they bragged about Obama being internet savvy. Now they are worried about President Trump being savvy. 🤔

    Start with eliminating multiple accounts for individual users. One man, one vote…

    Yet CNN is lying about actual poles about Bernie Sanders, and putting Joe at the top, when Bernie wins these polls ahead of Joe and Warren. So yeah, not really comfortable with people lying either.

    If only people would realize the garbage that are on Facebook they would all close their accounts and preserve their minds and good judgement.

    Many of us don't feel comfortable with major "news" organizations like CNN masquerading as news while serving as nothing but propaganda outlets for the Democratic Party. You're the basic equivalent that Pravda was to the USSR. You are not the free press that our Founders intended or established protections for under the Constitution, and hopefully the day will come when those protections are removed from you and you're forced to reclassify yourselves for what you are. The DNC channel.

    You should run for office. Love listening to you anytime. It is so refreshing NOT to hear dirt or mudslinging and such an intelligent even keel individual. You certainly know a lot more than some of those politicians.

    CNN ABC CBS and NBC should be shut down for covering up child pedo’s in government and Hollywood. And Epstein didn’t kill himself.

    False equivalency. A fact is a fact, as a falsehood is false. We'd be attacking Fox and MySpace if it were on the other foot.
