@KruegerLawyer @ismhInstagram is 100% owned by Facebook and is governed by the same people with the same philosophy and business model. People who think they’re fleeing Facebook by spending more time on Instagram are fooling themselves. It’s just another iteration of Facebook.

@Kanegroup Oh, this has nothing to do with which party you favor. Facebook promotes lies and falsehoods of all kinds. Every minute you spend there or on Instagram (which Facebook owns) checking out a friend’s photos, you are enriching people who harm societies.

Never trust Facebook to do the right thing. The company has shown time and time again that its guiding policy is greed, pure and simple. Not adherence to the truth, certainly not upholding privacy, and not even enforcing its own rules.

Even if you’re not interested in space, I recommend this new podcast from the ⁦BBC. It’s⁩ a fascinating audio documentary that shows how a mostly united country pulled off a massive engineering and foreign policy feat in peacetime.

An apology to George R.R. Martin: ending Game of Thrones is really hard. Interesting essay on the distinct, but related, dilemmas of wrapping up the novels and the TV series.

@Fox5Teresa Jon didn’t want to be King of Westeros. And, while he was honest, honorable, and brave in combat, he showed zero propensity for Southern politics and governance. I believe his final scene indicates that he will be the “King Beyond the Wall”.

1/ Some personal news: I've decided to quit Facebook around the end of the year. I am doing this - after being on Facebook for nearly 12 years - because my own values and the policies and actions of Facebook have diverged to the point where I’m no longer comfortable there.

Dear . You don’t enforce your “rules”. You don’t penalize the deliberate and repeated promulgation of hoaxes, false news and conspiracy theories. Your only “rule” is growth at all costs. I’m sure your safety team means well and tries, but your corporate commitment is absent.

For those too young to recall, was once a real news network which would never have hired a partisan operative as a political editor. For years, I covered the Secretary of State with CNN’s Ralph Begleiter, a real journalist, widely respected and nonpartisan. Cc .

This entitled, tone-deaf attitude by Zuckerberg (and Sandberg) is nothing new. They built massive fortunes by duping people into giving up vast amounts of private information. Their greed is wearing thin and the long con they’ve been running is in danger.
