Watch Panic Consume Zuckerberg When Senator Asks About Illicitly Obtained Facebook Data Swaying ’12 Election For Obama

Kirsters Baish| If you use the internet at all, you are aware that social media giant, Facebook, is in the middle of a scandal, and it’s a big one.  Founder and CEO, Mark Zuckerberg, is the head of a technology empire that cannot seem to explain itself.  This isn’t good news for the multibillionaire, who was expected to do a lot of explaining during his two days of testimony in front of Congress. One of the biggest topics on the table was data security.

It wasn’t very long ago that it was released to the public that information broker Cambridge Analytica had “mined” personal data of roughly 87 million people. Some of the information that they gathered was used during the 2016 presidential campaign.

The mainstream media is desperately grasping at straws to tie the scandal to President Trump, and recent reports have shown that Trump’s campaign team was, in fact, aided by the information broker in their efforts to target voters. But, there is more to the story that the left doesn’t want you to hear. Barack Obama’s campaign did the same thing during the 2012 election.  The only difference was Obama’s campaign was able to scrape the ‘entire social graph’ according to Carol Davidsen, an Obama 2012 campaign official.   He even bragged about it, calling it an “accomplishment.”

Tillis, who has a background in technology, claimed, “I think that timeline needs to be updated.”

“I’ve read a series of three articles that were published in the MIT technology review back in 2012,” he went on. “And it talks about how proud the Obama campaign was of exploiting data on Facebook.”

Tillis used the words of Obama’s own team to prove that this has been happening since long before the 2016 presidential election.

“I think you should probably be equally mad when a former campaign director of the Obama campaign proudly tweeted: ‘Facebook was surprised. We were able to suck out the whole social graph, but they didn’t stop us once they realized that was what we were doing,’” he explained.

Facebook was surprised we were able to suck out the whole social graph, but they didn’t stop us once they realized that was what we were doing.

This tweet came from Carol Davidsen, Obama’s former media director. She then tweeted again, suggesting that the social media giant granted the Democratic candidate with special privileges because the company agreed with his policies.

Conservative Tribune reported:

“They (Facebook) came to office in the days following election recruiting & were very candid that they allowed us to do things they wouldn’t have allowed someone else to do because they were on our side,” Davidsen wrote.

Senator Tillis firmly suggested that Zuckerberg not ignore this fact. “When you go back and do your research on Cambridge Analytica, I would personally appreciate it if you would start back from the first high-profile national campaign that exploited Facebook data.”

As Tillis went into detail about how a 2012 Obama app had mined users’ Facebook data to help the Democrats, Mark Zuckerberg seemed visibly uncomfortable on camera. On a split-screen broadcast by C-SPAN, he could be seen glancing around and making a face that looked particularly nervous.

“I also believe that that person who may have looked the other way when the whole social graph was extracted for the Obama campaign, if they are still working for you, they probably should not,” Tillis pushed.

“At least there should be a business code of conduct that says that you do not play favorites. You are trying to create a fair place for people to share ideas,” he finished.

Social media networks are always playing favorites, and this is a huge part of the problem. Americans aren’t stupid, and they are onto you, Zuckerberg.

    Today, I went to the beach with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!
