NAACP Calls For Facebook Boycott Today

Full disclosure: Like most news and politics websites, Crooks and Liars has an auto-feed to post our content to social media including Facebook. This post is to let people know what's going on and why the NAACP is calling for the boycott. I am personally staying off of Facebook today in support of the boycott. -- Frances Langum

NAACP is calling for a one-day boycott of Facebook today:

Facebook’s engagement with partisan firms, its targeting of political opponents, the spread misinformation and the utilization of Facebook for propaganda promoting disingenuous portrayals of the African American community is reprehensible.

We are calling on Congress to conduct further investigations, and calling on users to
log out of Facebook, Instagram, and What’sapp on Tuesday, December 18. #LogOutFacebook.

Can you help us out?

For 17 years we have been exposing Washington lies and untangling media deceit, but now Facebook is drowning us in an ocean of right wing lies. Please give a one-time or recurring donation, or buy a year's subscription for an ad-free experience. Thank you.
