When AOC took the floor, she SCORCHED Zuckerberg...

10/24 Doomstead Daily:Ocasio-Cortez stumps Zuckerberg with questions on far right and Cambridge Analytica

AOC did a very nice number on 🐘 Zuckerberg.

When AOC took the floor, she SCORCHED Zuckerberg... forcing him many times to admit that Facebook would allow lies to be published by politicians in their ads.

You announced recently that the official policy of Facebook now allows politicians to pay to spread disinformation in 2020 election asks in the future. So I just want to know how far I can push this in the next year. Under your policy using census data as well, could I pay to target black zip codes and advertise them the incorrect election date?

Zuckerberg: No, Congresswoman, you couldn't. We have even for these policies around the newsworthiness of content that politicians say and the general principle that I believe --

AOC: But you said you're not going to fact check my ads?

Zuckerberg: If anyone including a politician is saying things that can cause violence or could risk imminent physical harm or voter or census suppression, we roll out the census suppression policy.  We will take that content down.

AOC: So you will -- there is some threshold you will fact check political advertisements. Is that what you're telling me?

Zuckerberg: Congresswoman, yes, for specific things like that, where there's risk of harm.

AOC: Would I be able to run advertisements on Facebook targeting Republicans in primaries saying they voted for the Green New Deal? If you're not fact checking political advertisements? I’m trying to understand the bounds here of what's fair game.

I don't know the answer to that off the top of my head.

AOC: You don't know if I'll be able to do that. Do you see a potential problem here with a complete lack of fact checking on political advertisements?

Zuckerberg: Congresswoman, I think lying is bad. I think if you were to run an ad that had a lie that would be bad. That's different from it being -- in our position, the right thing to prevent your constituents or people in an election from seeing that you had lied.

By the way, I figured out why Kochroach Pompeo picked Taylor to replace his predecessor, Marie Yovanovitch. Taylor is a West Pointer. He (1965 - Class of 69') came in a year after I flunked out. Pompeo was much later (1986), but West Pointers generally 'West Pointer RHIP' each other as a matter of habit.

No wonder Trump, who doesn't have a clue what West Point Esprit De Corps means, is bent out of shape at Pompeo. Pompeo is corrupt like Trump, but Taylor isn't. Pompeo will try to show Taylor the door quietly but it will not do anything but accelerate the fall of Trump AND his Wrecking Crew.

Right now I can tell you that, among the West Point alumni, a very close knit group, Pompeo AND Trump's names are MUD. That won't make the papers, but I can tell you that it means that Trump has lost any lingering support he had from the United States Army.
