Facebook shoots the messenger

It is in the news that Facebook is in the business of shooting the messengers of massive data abuse connected to the Brexit vote. This is a interesting move since the person in question was acting on the orders of Steve Bannon and others connected to the company called Cambridge Analytica. It doesn’t appear that Facebook has suspended Steve Bannon Facebook account or connected pages. It is clear that Facebook is going for the most easy and low hanging fruit they can find. I hope that Facebook gets sued over this case along with Cambridge Analytica and others connected to this case.
