244: Facebook Cleans Up Political Ads...But that's Not the Problem

Robert and Joe break down Facebook's political ad decision, but calls for more to be done on the organic side. LEGO leverages product development and Mattress Firm goes all content.


Facebook makes an announcement about curbing political ads, but still has a major problem with false organic content, as Russia again infiltrates the site.

LEGO leverages user-generated content as new product development, while CVS launches a new media network.

In rants and raves, Adweek buys Target Marketing and Publishing Executive, Facebook's CMO resigns to create more diversity, and Mattress Firm launches Sleep.com.
