@drwho Of course they did. 🤦‍♀️

I'm just glad there are journalists reporting on this stuff. Facebook, misinformation, digital influence, all of it. Bless them for the work they do.

@drwho This misguided attempt at balancing this story with a generous helping of bothsideism did not age well:

"It appears Facebook is addressing the criticisms as the site recently removed posts on the Team Trump page that spread misinformation about COVID-19. It also removed pages from a troll farm in Romania that posed as African-American support for Trump."

FAO anonymous CBS copywriter: balancing facts with bullshit is not objectivity, it's incompetence.
