Facebook's Big Fail - Inside PR 528

By Joseph Thornley

Facebook: Still Delaying. Still Denying. Still Deflecting. Two hours after we recorded last week's Inside PR, the New York Times posted a bombshell report - Delay, Deny, Deflect - about Facebook's management of legislators and manipulation of the truth.  And in this report, they answered the question that Gini Dietrich has been asking since the whole Cambridge Analytica fiasco broke - where are Facebook's communications team and what are they advising. Well, as it turns out, the real question should have been, what communications playbook are they using? Making the world more open and connected? Maybe for you and me. But for Facebook, definitely not more open.
