Within the 18th of December's Facebook reportage on the pages of the New York Times, Gabriel J.X. Dance, Michael LaForgia and Nicholas Confessore have written a classic piece dé resistance of investigative journalism. In which, we learn the bitter truth of machinations and shenanigans committed by Facebook executives in their efforts to satiate their founder's greed, and the executive ranks desperate need to wrest the power of the interwebs and make of it a monster fed by the Facebaggery of the company's Mark 'I-Didn't-Do-It' Zuckerberg. Just shameful, and worthy of an opportune long sentence in the hoosegow, eh?
