He's not the only show in town. In fact, he's really a minor player with all the other social media options out there. Advertiser have a big pie to chose from and it's a buyers market. Companies that size spend money on advertising on dozens and dozens of different sources. X is just one of a long list they chose to run ads on. If they drop one or two those platforms, it's no big deal to them. However, It IS A BIG DEAL FOR X to lose that account.

How on earth can on "manipulate" ad placement? Regardless, I don't see what difference it makes where an ad is placed. If it's on a site, and a company advertisers on that site, then it appears that the company pays money to a white supremacist site. No way to spin it.
