“Facebook, Germany to Collaborate Against Election Interference,” The Wall Street Journal, January 22, 2019.  Collaboration is in advance of the upcoming elections in Germany.

After Facebook’s role in the 2016 Presidential Election in the US, I guess this makes sense.  Is this Governance?  Yes, the media should help the government run free and fair elections.  But is Facebook “media,” apart from media in the sense of a platform for “social media”?  Is it a publisher, or something else?
