Hillary Clinton Says She Wants To Take Over Facebook
Former Secretary of State and demoralized/bitter 2016 Presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton, has, alongside her former staffers and current party of affiliation, blamed social media and “fake news” for her stunning loss to now President Donald Trump.
Clinton apparently wants to seek her revenge over the stale matter by taking over Facebook as CEO. On Friday, Clinton was receiving the Radcliffe Medal, a medal which serves to honor those who “had a transformative impact on society.”
When asked by Massachusetts Attorney General, Maura Healey, if there is any company she’d enjoy being CEO of, Clinton replied “Facebook.”

Her reasoning for wanting to take the helm was obvious and transparent and, well, peppered with more bitter.

“It’s the biggest news platform in the world,” she said. “Most people in our country get their news — true or not — from Facebook.”
Following the Cambridge Analytica scandal as well as today’s onslaught of issues regarding the EU’s GDPA start date, Facebook has struggled to regain consumer trust. I’m not sure that hiring Clinton to run their operation, a former politician who kept secure emails on her own internal server, would be a move in the appropriate direction. Furthermore, it is difficult to imagine the great lengths Clinton would go to in order to subvert free speech in a network that’s already proved troubling in such regards.
Clinton says that Facebook is trying to resolve some “unexpected consequences of their business model” and that “it really is critical to our democracy that people get accurate information on which to make decisions.”
In other words, Clinton wants to tighten the grips on limited speech as much as possible and exact her revenge.
