Facebook insider confessions

What he wrote in his book Zucked: Waking Up to the Facebook Catastrophe, McNamee, 2019 can be accepted as a testimony against the interest. In part, he discloses some of the aid provided by Facebook and Google to Obama campaigns and hints at reciprocate relationships between the Obama administration and Big Tech, which became pervasive entwinement between the government and Big Tech behemoths. Consequently, Big Tech could not accept the Democrats loss in the 2016 elections. Quotes:

Facebook … cofounder Chris Hughes’s role in President Obama’s reelection campaign in 2012, when Hughes ran digital operations.  (p. 166)
