Corporate behemoth Unilever is threatening to stop advertising on digital platforms like Facebook and Google, blasting them for spreading fake news and divisive content, CNN reports, citing a copy of a speech that Unilever chief marketing officer Keith Weed will deliver Monday.

Quote"We cannot continue to prop up a digital supply chain ... which at times is little better than a swamp in terms of its transparency."
