Facebook Hires News Liaison With Deep Ties to Trump Admin

Campbell Brown, Former CNN and NBC host with close ties to Betsy DeVos, Trump’s pick for secretary of education, will lead Facebook’s news partnership division.

On Friday Facebook announced that it has hired former journalist and ardent school privatization advocate Campbell Brown, who has deep ties to Donald Trump’s pick for secretary of education, as head of its news partnership division, raising a series of concerns about how Facebook could help mainstream media shift even further to the right at the dawn of the Trump administration.

After leaving CNN in 2010, Brown founded several anti-union, pro-school privatization organizations, most recently the education news website The 74, which is partially bankrolled by billionaire heiress Betsy DeVos, Donald Trump’s pick for education secretary who has been widely blamed for the destruction of the Detroit public school system.
