What Everyone Gets Wrong About Facebook
Don't fight free speech; fight surveillance.
Facebook is changing its name.
The reason? They’re not just a social media platform anymore. They’re so much more!
Definitely not the reason? Distract and distance from a whistleblower scandal, rampant fake news issues, and an evil reputation. No, really, it has nothing to do with those things…
Activist and writer Evan Greer, director of Fight for the Future, joins the Useful Idiots to discuss The Company Soon to Be Known As The Company Formerly Known As Facebook. We delve deep into the whistleblower’s findings, how Facebook has made free speech litigious, and its most recent laundry list of crimes against humanity. Plus what whistle blower Frances Haugen gets right and what she gets wrong.
We think we found a guest more “absolutist” (whatever that means) about the First Amendment than Matt is.
Evan asks the question: Can we see a world without Facebook? If the answer is yes, then it’s time to abolish it.
Plus, a final word on Colin Powell and Joe Manchin obstructs the Carbon Offset Consideration Kickoff. Yeah, he’s a real COCK block.
It’s all this, and more, on this week’s episode of Useful Idiots. Check it out. And stand by for the Substack-only episode in which Katie and Matt discuss potato chips and Evan discusses sex workers and the internet, which drops Monday.
