The leaked Facebook recording was mostly boring but I wrote about how it will help at least one person: Elizabeth Warren.  https://onezero.medium.com/the-real-winner-in-the-facebook-leak-is-elizabeth-warren-bc2f182a7d93 

The narrative that Facebook was biased against Trump has played into Trump's hands for four years. Zuck saying that a Warren presidency would "suck for us" is a wakeup call: Facebook isn't anti-Trump, it's pro-profit.  https://onezero.medium.com/the-real-winner-in-the-facebook-leak-is-elizabeth-warren-bc2f182a7d93 

The idea that Facebook will systematically sabotage Warren is no more realistic than the idea that it would do the same to Trump. But it's healthy that her supporters will now be as vigilant about its handling of the election as Trump's always have been.  https://onezero.medium.com/the-real-winner-in-the-facebook-leak-is-elizabeth-warren-bc2f182a7d93
