Facebook have rebuked Hillary Clinton for spreading fake news about their platform on social media, slapping down the twice-failed presidential candidate for making demonstrably false claims about why she lost the election.
On Monday, Crooked Hillary reached a new low when she called for censorship of critical voices before the midterm elections, and then blamed social media advertising costs for her election loss.
Proving that she has no shame, Hillary tried to play the victim, alleging that Facebook charged her more than Trump for advertising on the platform during the 2016 election.
The debacle began when Tech Cruch writer demonstrated her Democratic Party PR credentials by creating some fake news that would appeal to Hillary:
I can’t believe this tweet isn’t going viral. Do people not really care that Facebook may have systematically charged the Clinton campaign an order of magnitude or two more than it was charging Trump to reach American voters? (Which is not allowed in other mediums by law.) https://t.co/S2OgxfgcGq

Hillary never misses an opportunity to demand changes to the Democratic system that ensured she didn’t get anywhere near the highest office in the land. She also loves finding new excuses for her huge loss.
She replied to Kim-Mai Cutler:
We should all care about how social media platforms play a part in our democratic process. Because unless it’s addressed it will happen again. The midterms are in 8 months. We owe it to our democracy to get this right, and fast. https://t.co/aM3pRrZW4J

But Facebook have had enough of Hillary Clinton’s lies about their platform and on Wednesday they demonstrated that if mainstream media won’t fact check America’s most notorious liar, they will do it themselves.
Responding to Hillary’s bare-faced lie with a report proving that they didn’t charge her more for advertising (in fact Donald Trump paid slightly more per view), Facebook dismantled Hillary’s latest excuse for her heavy 2016 defeat.
Vice President of Facebook advertising, Andrew “Boz” Bosworth responded to the report with a chart showing Trump indeed paid more.
After some discussion we've decided to share the CPM comparison on Trump campaign ads vs. Clinton campaign ads. This chart shows that during general election period, Trump campaign paid slightly higher CPM prices on most days rather than lower as has been reported. pic.twitter.com/u0qgUQ02qM

Poor Crooked Hillary. Her fake news keeps getting debunked.
