    These companies do not care where the money comes from, they don’t care who is in power, just take the money & buy the politicians to de-regulate! Let the american middle class pay the bill.

    Regardless of who buys ads on their platforms, these companies need to be regulated and potentially broken up under ant-trust laws

    People underestimate how stunning this is. Facebook is loyal to money, not the country. They are an american business that let a foreign country manipulate us, for money. This is capitalism destroying a country because they have no loyalty to the country. If America is destroyed, Facebook will just shrug and move to another country.

      Do you support Facebook “manipulating” us by taking down “offensive” posts? Remember saying something bad about Islam is “offensive” but calling a white man (who’s ancestor’s were killed by nazis) a Nazi is not.

      that is not “manipulation”?

    Trump has huge money laundering deals with Russia. I can’t wait for evidence of that being uncovered. Patience is a virtue…

    Disappointed to see Cenk making excuses for fb and Google’s sloppy and reckless election ad handling. It would be trivial to fix this issue on a technical level. It will just cost them ad revenue so they’ll fight it till the end.

    an american national can also pay by foreign currency, so starting an investigation after foreign currency is used could be the practice but i get that they don’t want to miss out on the money

    I think what they’re doing is self protective and understandable PR during the questioning here, and understandably so. They’re a multinational company, and it may just be that they’re trying to suggest that they have international revenue and they may not be super prepared to prevent this… meaning its complicated.

    Sell Outs. Looked embarrassed following the Party Line of their New Masters. SAD Won’t be back. Have been gradually losing their credibility lately. Money rules everything in the USA

    There is a story from every person who interacted with Papadopoulos & others. Going back to 2015. It’s worth journalists finding these people and asking them hard questions.. Before Mueller gets to them! And the shoe drops.. Because then they would already have the scoop!

    google isn’t an americans-only company, if they have to obey to your laws, they have to do the same for all others in the world.
    besides the problem that google is playing judge then, it also costs a lot to maintain it for every country they’re active in

    What? Like Obama left DNC? So much so they sold out to Hillary? Who Bernie endorsed? After having the democratic primaries stolen off him?

    You people are shmucks.

    Nonetheless, your gracious President loves you Cenk and Ana.

    Trump 2020 MAGA!!!!!
