The Daily Beast reports:
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) ripped Facebook chief Mark Zuckerberg for saying he didn’t believe social media platforms should be the “arbiters of truth” and fact-check political speech. “I think Mark Zuckerberg’s statement was a disgrace,” Pelosi told MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell on Thursday.
“And Twitter, they’re not taking off any accusations the president is making about Joe Scarborough,” she exclaimed.
“They know that’s not true. They do a token thing and think it’s okay. Again, I don’t know if there’s honor among thieves but they only have a business model to make money, not to convey facts. That’s what they’re about.”
Speaker Nancy Pelosi says Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg “panders” to the White House to avoid taxes and regulations, and suggests Pres. Trump’s expected executive order targeting social media platforms may be a case of “no honor among thieves.” https://t.co/TQyMmY8yNZ pic.twitter.com/gpGnquKZIu
