The proliferation of fake news through Facebook and other social media has had a profoundly damaging impact on our elections. Now Mark Zuckerberg has announced that he intends to hire Campbell Brown to lead the news team at Facebook. Campbell Brown has received funding from billionaires to relentlessly promote charter schools and vouchers, and attack public schools and public school teachers at every turn, through spreading disinformation and misinformation.
She has also received funding from Betsy Devos, the pro-privatization billionaire appointed by Trump to head the Department of Education, who herself has wreaked havoc on the public schools in her state of Michigan. In short, Campbell Brown is the last person in the world who should be hired to try to inject more objectivity and truth into Facebook.
