CNET: Facebook fallout: Civil rights groups call for firing of executive. “In a press conference Tuesday, three civil rights groups, Color of Change, Bend the Arc: Jewish Action, and Public Citizen called on the world’s largest social network to fire Joel Kaplan, vice president of global public policy for Facebook. The groups also want Facebook to release a civil rights audit and any opposition research done on them by Definers Public Affairs, a firm that Facebook ended its contract with after an investigation by The New York Times.”
