Searches for the Buffalo shooting video on Facebook surface posts with the full uploaded video and various links to sites promising the footage. In some cases, Facebook is also serving ads next to those posts. nytimes.com/2022/05/19/techn…

Some tech companies, like Google, prevent searches around sensitive events from being monetized. Facebook is not doing this for users searching for the Buffalo footage. In some cases, the top Facebook search result are posts with or links to the footage. nytimes.com/2022/05/19/techn…

Facebook is far from the only platform surfacing the Buffalo video in searches. It's been on Twitter, Truth Social, Parler, Reddit, and others. But Facebook is the only place I've seen showing ads next to those posts. nytimes.com/2022/05/19/techn…

As an update here: it appears that Facebook may have demonetized some of the search results around the Buffalo gunman video following this story.

Musk may be hiring more lawyers at Tesla, but it's worth noting that he's run the company's legal department into the ground in recent years. The company has cycled thru multiple general counsels and lower level lawyers.

If you want to know the state of moderation about the Buffalo gunman video on major platforms, someone just replied to a tweet of mine with a graphic clip of it, hosted on Twitter, that autoplays. Good job everyone.

NEW: In New Orleans, a group of Black doctors risked their careers to accuse their medical school of institutional racism. The year was 2020. What would it take to prove that there was a problem β€” and fix it? This is an anatomy of a racial reckoning. buzzfeednews.com/article/ste…
