The media is outraged that a Republican linked outfit harvested Facebook data. Of course, they ignore the fact that they themselves praised Barack Obama for doing this very thing. Well, turns out Hillary did it too!
From Fox News:
"The social networking giant banned the practice of acquiring users’ friends lists in 2014 after former President Barack Obama’s campaign weaponized the method and got access to the data of millions of potential voters.
But Clinton’s application took advantage of special iPhone and Facebook integration, asking every user to pair their friends list on Facebook with their phone contacts – and give the campaign permission to access that info.
People who didn’t download the application weren’t able to stop friends from pairing their phone numbers with Facebook accounts if their friends decided to do so.
Once the friends list was paired with the app, people had to swipe through their Facebook friends and dismiss those who, in their view, would never vote for Clinton. Once that was done, the remaining friends were sorted by location and the users could send a pre-written text message to convince them to back Clinton in numerous ways."
It's funny to watch the media try to make hay out of their own barnyard waste. If they want to keep pushing this they will likely wind up hurting the Democrats, who rely on this sort of data to push their candidates and agenda. They Donkeys struggle to get their spin out, because it IS spin and requires a lot of carefully phrased buzzwords and memes repeated endlessly. Our side is in much better shape in that regard as we only need get the truth out. If the Democrats can't use this cyber technique they are going to be hard pressed.
This is going to be fun to watch as the Left eats it's own foot.
