- Facebook AD VP: MSM Ignoring Facts About Russian AD Spending for Election
‘Very few outlets have covered it because it doesn’t align with main media narrative of Trump and the election,’ he says.
Most of Russia’s ad spending happened after the election, but that fact doesn’t support the mainstream media’s narrative of collusion with Trump, says Facebook’s Vice President of Ad Products Rob Goldman.
“The majority of the Russian ad spend happened AFTER the election,” Goldman tweeted Friday. “We shared that fact, but very few outlets have covered it because it doesn’t align with the main media narrative of Trump and the election.”
“Most of the coverage of the 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.”
