Good lord. There were a total of zero voices who thought to say, “Um, wait a second …”?
"The Colonel" in this case refers to Colonel Klink.

Horribly, you're undoubtedly right, but how can there not be even one human being as some kind of quality control? I mean, evil corporations like this know full well the importance of avoiding shitstorms. Brand rep matters to an unhealthy degree in our social media dystopia.

I kinda can't stop myself from thinking that saving/making money takes precedence over everything, even preventative measures. The short-term moneymaking is all that matters.

I fully believe that profit > indoctrination in normal business practice—I'm not lefty conspiracist—but when these companies spending millions on advertising annually, the notion of not having quality control for their social media feeds just seems too unlikely to me.
