Lol well then please do tell me what makes this a garbage response!?

Was your favorite part of Fakebook when they admitted to running psychological studies on their users by feeding them negative vs positive feeds?

Or is it the mass collection of data used to sell people s*** to the highest bidder?

Are you really in favor of them deciding for their sheep what is and is not real news?

Let me guess, you are so terrified of those Russian trolls you need big brother Zuckerberg to help you understand the world around you, that way your cries of "garbage" responses shall encapsulate you in a nice bubble of cognitive dissonance, one in which there is no need to critically think!

The idea that somehow Facebook are being "arbiters of reality," which apparently gives you an excuse to pretend like what they're telling you isn't true.

Garbage.

EDIT: I just noticed you used the term "cognitive dissonance." F'ing irony.

Facebook are at the "we decide fact and fiction" game again. You're too stupid to think for yourself, so just believe what we say.

Any narrative that contradicts Facebook's is wrong because Facebook says so.

Also Russians are evil and you should hate all of them. Why? I dunno. But that's the progressive stance now.

You'd have to visit non-USA sites to see that, as the CIA doesn't operate domestically.



Your ignorance on the above subject is unbelievable. They aren't supposed too, yes, but it's quite empirical and well-documented that they have/do.

You can cure that ignorance by yourself very easily. Not even a difficult Google. You won't even have to go Boolean. No, I won't Google for you. Speaking of Google, take a good look at Alphabet, Inc. if you decide to self-educate.

Or you can continue to be ignorant and parade it here. Wear it loud, wear it proud, sir.


And the Las Vegas shooter was liberal because he drank Pepsi. Because... Alex Jones, the new ATS "denying ignorance" hero:



"He drank Pepsi!" Jones chimed in. "And yet liberals. I mean literally, conservatives do not drink — especially in the Obama era — conservatives drink Coca-Cola, if you drink soft drinks, liberals drink Pepsi. Now that's a big clue!"

Alex Jones says he knows that the Las Vegas shooter was a liberal because he drank Pepsi

i'll check this out whenever they release it... i understand the russians did some left-wing propaganda too. i try to be careful but if i've been fooled i definitely want to know. i'd rather be wrong, know it, and change than just keep on being wrong.

When the MSM is claiming that fakebook will be flagging fake news and informing people they fell for "Russian propaganda" how are they not being rolled out as the arbiters of truth for their users?

Further more, the proof of them psychologic ally manipulating their users, puts them in a category of a deceptive entity not to be trusted.

If that fact makes you cringe because you want them to be a reliable source of "truth" aka informing you of "propaganda" then I believe you to be a victim of cognitive dissonance.

Are you sure you understand the definition of irony?

...and there you have it.

If Facebook was so altruistic, why did they allow it on in the first place?

Not much more needs to be said, really...

Now if you want opinion, then you're in the right place, or so I surmise, since the next time I'm on FB will be the first.

So first you attack people's character and try to make them feel rejected. Then you try to dismantle their understanding of themselves by instilling doubt about their decisions. Well it's not long before these people are swayable or ruined. Look, I'm not saying this is what's happening. I hated Trump. I believe Russia was somehow involved in trying to at least destabilize our political system, or at most to get Trump elected. I also think none of this has to be intentional. BUT if some authority somewhere wanted to psychologically get into the heads of people, there's ample knowledge available to do that. Not only does this make the Russian interference believable, but it also brings into suspicion every other power structure on Earth. Does power corrupt? Then we should worry.

I personally feel people who voted for Turmp should be taken at face value. They voted for him. Don't blame it on Russia. I think by doing this we respect them and make our country stronger.

The focus should be on Trump's administration and its plans. They're the ones in the position of power now.

Yes, they did.

The Russians are past masters at this. They were when it was Imperial Russia. When it was the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. ...and it hasn't changed a bit.

Of course, they were playing both sides... It would be more shocking if they didn't, imnsho.

So many garbage responses like this. You guys are in denial.
a reply to: Dudemo5

Coming from the guy with the one liner post with no real input.

Whose in denial? Trump won the election without the help of the Russians, or Fakebook.

It is the left that refuses to accept that simple fact.

Is that you Hillary is this just another example of one of the many reasons that you lost the election.

"What happened" ? I'll tell you what happened Trump won and you suck! That's what happened!

You, apparently.

Nice Strawman. That's not what this is about. It's about a foriegn adversary attempting to hijack our democracy by targeting U.S. citizens with propaganda. Did you fall for any of it? Are you afraid to look and find out?



It is the left that refuses to accept that simple fact.

Well, I'll be sure to let them know if I see them. Although it seems to me you're the one in denial, as you apparently think Facebook is lying to you about the origin and content of the stuff posted on their own servers.




Is that you Hillary is this just another example of one of the many reasons that you lost the election.

Hillary sucks. She is the worst presidential candidate of my lifetime. That is why she lost. So again, you might want to get your head out of your butt.



The hattery of asses is at an all time high with you jokers.

I don't even use Facebook. I do, however, trust that they know the origin and content of the things posted on their servers, and that they weren't lying to Congress.

Actually no thanks. I do not have and never have had a fakebook account. So I wasn't propagandized by the Russians on Fakebook.

I got all of my fake-news from CNN and WaPo.

Hillary was the worst thing for the dems. Bernie would have been better.

In the end Trump was the only option!
