You Need to Watch the Facebook Whistleblower

October 4, 2021

Since, with Facebook down, you probably have some time on your hands.
You really should listen to these, since for those of us that deal with misinformation, Facebook is Public Enemy Number One.

A good example of the intersection between climate denial, misinformation, attacks on clean energy, and instigating violence on Facebook would be Kevon Martis, a well known operative of the Fossil Fuel lobbying group E&E Legal, who is active across the midwest opposing clean energy with intimidation, misinformation, and bullying tactics. Below, his Facebook feed featured this piece right around the time that insurrectionists invaded the Michigan Capitol to threaten legislators, and months before insurrectionists murderously broke in to the US capitol.

    Wait a minute. This lobbyist wrote 𝘯𝘪𝘤𝘦 𝘤𝘢𝘱𝘪𝘵𝘰𝘭 𝘺𝘰𝘶 𝘩𝘢𝘷𝘦 𝘵𝘩𝘦𝘳𝘦, 𝘴𝘩𝘢𝘮𝘦 𝘪𝘧 𝘮𝘺 𝘴𝘶𝘱𝘱𝘰𝘳𝘵𝘦𝘳𝘴 𝘥𝘦𝘴𝘵𝘳𝘰𝘺𝘦𝘥 𝘪𝘵. And accompanied that with a picture of a truck his supporters had destroyed.

    Shouldn’t this be actionable somehow?
