Facebook admits Sheryl Sandberg asked staff to dig up intel on Soros after he called the site a ‘menace to society’

Daily Mail-

Facebook has admitted that Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg requested research on billionaire George Soros, despite previous insistence that she was not directly involved in the controversial matter.

In a statement on Thursday, Facebook said that Sandberg had sent an email asking whether Soros had shorted the company’s stock after he called Facebook a ‘menace to society’ in January 2018.

In previous statements, Sandberg had distanced herself from the hiring of conservative PR firm Definers and related efforts to dig dirt on Soros, which the liberal billionaire’s allies have called anti-Semitic smears.

Facebook’s admission came in a statement first reported by Buzzfeed and confirmed by DailyMail.com.

It follows a controversy in which Facebook’s Head of Communications and Policy Elliot Schrage published a blog post last week detailing the company’s decision to hire Definers Public Affairs, a Republican-affiliated firm, to research Soros.

Sandberg also added a statement to Schrange’s post, saying she didn’t recall Definers but noting: ‘Some of their work was incorporated into materials presented to me and I received a small number of emails where Definers was referenced.’   more here

  1. Wow! I even agree with Soros on that one.
    I’ve never ever gotten into Facebook or any of the other socialized networks.
    I don’t care when people go to the mall or Walmart, what they are eating,etc.
    I may not have any friends, but doubt the participants in the Zuckerberg scam have real friends either.

  3. Soros would be just fine with Facebook if he controlled it, and he would do nothing differently. They’re all megalomaniacs lusting after each other’s power.
