Facebook Ad Exec Forced to Apologize for Correcting Russia Conspiracy Theory

American Pravda will not have its conspiracy theories, lies and narratives questioned.

Rob Goldman, Facebook’s VP of Ad Product, fired off two important tweets, ”Most of the coverage of Russian meddling involves their attempt to effect the outcome of the 2016 US election. I have seen all of the Russian ads and I can say very definitively that swaying the election was *NOT* the main goal.”

“The majority of the Russian ad spend happened AFTER the election. We shared that fact, but very few outlets have covered it because it doesn’t align with the main media narrative of Tump and the election.“ 

Facebook has been under fire and defending itself ever since the election when it became the scapegoat for Hillary’s defeat. This shouldn’t have made too much news, but then Trump picked it up.

And the mob descended. And by mob, I mean the lefty media.

America. This is what it looks like now.

So a mandatory apology for disagreeing with the leftist Russian conspiracy meme was required.

Facebook’s vice president of advertising has apologized to colleagues for his comments about Russian election meddling that were retweeted by President Trump over the weekend, Wired reported.

“I wanted to apologize for having tweeted my own view about Russian interference without having it reviewed by anyone internally. The tweets were my own personal view and not Facebook‘s. I conveyed my view poorly,” Rob Goldman wrote Monday in a message shared internally at Facebook.

“The Special Counsel has far more information about what happened [than] I do — so seeming to contradict his statements was a serious mistake on my part,” Mr. Goldman wrote, according to Wired.

Goldman hadn’t actually contradicted Mueller, but we are in the post-fact era and the Mueller thing became the tip of the narrative spear for the assault on Goldman. And in our honor-shame society, Goldman had to apologize for telling the truth.
