Alec MacGillis
Can't overstate how many of the swing-state voters I spoke with who had the wildest anti-Hillary notions relied on Facebook for their news.

Spoke with multiple people in Ohio who's first go-to explanation of the election was "WikiLeaks" which they'd seen on Facebook

It's not just Facebook though, the 3 decades of wild tabloid stories and political smear jobs helped make anything about her believable

I find this true of anti-Trump views this year as well. Otherwise sensible people under the impression Louise Mensch ravings are "news"

I literally deleted my account last year because of the non-stop sharing of ridiculous anti-Clinton news stories. It was nuts.

Are you suggesting the WikiLeaks stories should have been censored? Bc the hacked docs were legit, not fake. Let ppl make up their own minds

Had friends who bought into fake Hillary stories on Facebook; hook line & sinker. Would not be budged by any debunking, either.

My family in the FL panhandle told me as fact that HRC was dying. I had to show photos with her the week before. Not sure they believed me

Can't speak for Alec, but that's certainly not what I'm suggesting. I'm not sure what the best policy response is at this point.

I think we need to figure out how to make sure current American law designed to protect our elections from foreign interference are upheld.

Russian government was clearly boosting Trump and attacking Clinton in a way that, iiuc, subverts intention of our election law.

Cambridge Analytica helped target the timelines for these ads to show up. They were spoon fed based on a propensity to believe

People who do not think critically getting their news off FB is a really good reason to shut it down! Fox News is bad enough!
