Accuracy in Media

Conservatives have said for years that Facebook favors liberal viewpoints — and now they have more ammunition thanks to an Obama campaign media director, who tweeted Sunday that the social media giant was “on our side” during his reelection bid.

“They came to office in the days following election recruiting & were very candid that they allowed us to do things they wouldn’t have allowed someone else to do because they were on our side,” Carol Davidsen, director of data integration and media analytics for Obama for America, tweeted Sunday.

Davidsen said Facebook allowed her team to gather massive amounts of personal information from its users and their friends because they were supportive of the Obama campaign.
