    Not at all. This is the latest.

    Facebook says Russia-linked ads that reached millions of Americans continued to 'sow division' and undermine Trump – not Hillary – even AFTER the 2016 election
    • Facebook General Counsel Colin Stretch said in a Senate hearing that Russia-linked political ads kept running on the giant platform after the 2016 election
    • After Trump won the White House, Stretch said, 'we saw a lot of activity targeted at fomenting discord about the validity of his election'
    • Sean Edgett, Twitter's acting general counsel, said his company 'saw similar activity'
    • 'The same is true for Google,' added Richard Salgado, the search engine behemoth's senior counsel

    I seriously do not recall the fake news on Trump as much as Hillary..but will research .

    Facebook disclosed in September that more than 3,000 ads were bought by 470 fake accounts and pages run by the Internet Research Agency in St. Petersburg. Those accounts have been shut down. Some of those ads were released Wednesday, showing Russian operatives had targeted users on subjects including gun rights, gay rights, religion and Presidential candidates Trump and Clinton..

    Facebook's Zuckerberg says he's 'dead serious' about Russia, warns security spending will hurt profits

    That is a UK paper, not the LATEST in the US. Here is the latest from the US:

    While the examples of some ads had leaked previously, Wednesday's release was the broadest publication of these falsified campaigns since this issue emerged. They also included the meta-data, or information the buyer used to obtain the ad through Facebook's automated ad system, from age of the targeted viewer to content they like, and how successful the ads were in getting users to click on them.

    Here's a look at some of the ads and their divisive nature:

    See the fake Facebook ads Russians ran on Clinton, guns, race, Christianity

    A few were anti Trump, they were just released TODAY.

    Really. Well, then, what do the words in your post, ''heavy lifting for America in the east'' mean in your alternate universe? Hm?

    My point stands, scooter. America should mind their business and get out of the middle east. It's costing trillions of dollars that we don't have. We're broke.

    Another pro Trump ad purchased by Russia:

    Any pro Clinton the Republican Congress will rush to release, I am sure researchers are dredging. Why wouldn't Russia want Trump? He is both wealthy and deemed by foreign nations as a lightweight in experience. Today's Russians admired WEALTH, and the strength of the odious KGB Vlad.

    It's the US edition for crying out loud. With US writers. Covering the Senate hearings. Their testimony is on freaking record.

    Well bless their little hearts for thinking about Jesus and the battle between good and evil. How much did they actually spend? Those facebook ads seemed pretty reasonable to me when I looked at their rates.

    No surprise that the Dems are pushing for meme's to be banned after the Pepe incident; couldn't possibly be that a US presidential candidate (Clinton) and her lap dog fans got offended as fuck by a cartoon frog - so they trolled the fucking shit out of them... Nooo that couldn't have anything to do with this "ads" argument could it?
