US oligarchs unite: Facebook announces new election propaganda partnership with Atlantic Council war lobby to fight fake news at election time. Atlantic Council will spot geographic areas requiring "education" during election season-Facebook Newsroom, 5/17/18...(Atlantic Council is a massive war lobby which exists to extract cash from US taxpayers by inciting Endless Unwinnable Wars especially against Russia)

"Two weeks after the Atlantic Council explained to us that we need to be propagandized for our own good, Facebook announces a new partnership with the Atlantic Council to make sure we're getting the right kinds of information."..."Facebook used to be a social media tool, albeit briefly. Now it is a Deep State tool, allowing it to spy on the people and brainwash them into submission."..."When you look at who bankrolls the Atlantic Council (the military industrial complex), it becomes abundantly clear why this is so sinister." Atlantic Council Donors.

May 17, 2018, "Announcing New Election Partnership with the Atlantic Council," Facebook Newsroom, by Katie Harbath, Global Politics and Government Outreach Director

"Facebook is investing heavily to prevent our service from being abused during elections. We’re doubling the number of people who work on safety and security and using technology like artificial intelligence to more effectively block fake accounts – the source of many bad ads and a lot of misinformation. In addition, we’re more actively working with outside experts, governments and other companies because we know that we can’t solve these challenges on our own. For example, last month we announced an independent commission to help fund and organize research into the impact of social media on society — starting with elections.

Today, we’re excited to launch a new partnership with the Atlantic Council, which has a stellar reputation looking at innovative solutions to hard problems. Experts from their Digital Forensic Research Lab will work closely with our security, policy and product teams to get Facebook real-time insights and updates on emerging threats and disinformation campaigns from around the world. This will help increase the number of “eyes and ears” we have working to spot potential abuse on our service — enabling us to more effectively identify gaps in our systems, preempt obstacles, and ensure that Facebook plays a positive role during elections all around the world.

Facebook will also use the Atlantic Council’s Digital Research Unit Monitoring Missions during elections and other highly sensitive moments. This will allow us to focus on a particular geographic area — monitoring for misinformation and foreign interference and also working to help educate citizens as well as civil society.

Finally, we know that tackling these problems effectively also requires the right policies and regulatory structures so that governments and companies can help prevent abuse while also ensuring people have a voice during elections. The Atlantic Council’s network of leaders is uniquely situated to help all of us think through the challenges we will face in the near and long-term.

This effort is part of an broader initiative to help provide credible and independent research about the role of social media in elections, as well as democracy more generally. We look forward to working together to protect free and fair elections across the world."


Atlantic Council 2016 donors include US taxpayers via NATO, the US State Dept., US Air Force, US Army, US Marine Corps, US Navy....Honorable mention in $10,000-$24,999 group: Law firm Perkins Coie. They hired Fusion GPS which assembled and marketed the Russia-Gate Anti-Trump dossier.
