Facebook Ads VP Criticizes Media Narrative, Says Swaying Election ‘Not Main Goal’ of Russians

Belgian court orders Facebook to stop tracking web users

 Facebook’s Vice President of Ads, Rob Goldman, has poured more cold water on the theory that Russian propaganda somehow swayed the 2016 election following the recent Mueller indictments, calling it a “media narrative.”

In a series of tweets, one of which was retweeted by President Trump, Goldman categorically stated that the goal of Russian-bought ads on Facebook was not to sway the election, but to “divide America.”

In a particularly severe blow for the media narrative, Goldman also revealed that the majority of Russian ad spending took place after the election.
