Facebook and Russia


Facebook Inc. cut references to Russia from a public report in April about manipulation of its platform around the presidential election because of concerns among the company’s lawyers and members of its policy team, according to people familiar with the matter.

I wonder whether this will come up at the Nov. 1 House Intelligence Committee hearing.

UPDATE: More from Recode about what Facebook has disclosed to investigators and what they have not.

FURTHER UPDATE: A fascinating CNN story about a Houston protest sponsored by “Heart of Texas,” a group organizing the Houston rally via a Facebook page originating in St. Petersburg, Russia.
