In a disappointing, but not surprising, move, Facebook Said It Won’t Change Its Policies On Allowing Lies In Political Ads: “Ultimately, we don’t think decisions about political ads should be made by private companies, which is why we are arguing for regulation that would apply across the industry. In the absence of regulation, Facebook and other companies are left to design their own policies. We have based ours on the principle that people should be able to hear from those who wish to lead them, warts and all, and that what they say should be scrutinized and debated in public.” (Here’s an idea. Lawmakers should tell Facebook to either regulate their platform or get broken up. In the meantime, maybe the rest of us should break up with Facebook.)
