It added that it never discouraged Stamos from investigating Russian activity, but rather, "Mark and Sheryl expanded Alex's work." However, the NYT never actually said that Zuckerberg prevented Stamos from investigating the Russian leaks, only that Sheryl Sandberg was angry that he did it without permission.Mark and Sheryl have been deeply involved in the fight against false news and information … [Read more...] about Facebook responds to the New York Times’ blockbuster exposé
