Obama's use of FB api and datamining called genius and foward thinking while Trump use of it is called a scandal. Seems like the only scandal is one resulted in an outcome the left liked and the other the left hated.

Andrew,

What are you leaving out of your story here? Why?

Obama used Facebook data, in the same way, to win in 2012 - you did not mention this at all, only targeting Trump.
(https://www.investors.com/politics/editorials/facebook-data-scandal-trump-election-obama-2012/ )

Quoting, "But keep in mind that it wasn't the Trump campaign that solicited the collection of the data. And, as we said, it didn't use the data in the general election campaign.

Obama, in contrast, was collecting live data on active users right up until Election Day, and at a scale that dwarfed anything the Trump campaign could access."

Here's more: Both Zuck and Sandberg demonstrated their clear biases in the 2016 election, as opposed to their claims otherwise. You failed to report that as well.

I don't care about your personal biases - that is not what you are a hired journalist to report on. But, if you are going to be a journalist for news stories, do a better job or have Tom's admit their own official bias to all rather than this passive-aggressive behavior. I don't like it.


I like Tom's Guide too much to let this slide.
