Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg spoke with CNBC’s Andrew Ross Sorkin about what he thought of Twitter’s move to fact check President Trump’s tweets and the role social media platforms play in regulating misinformation online. “Political speech is one of the most sensitive parts in a democracy, and people should be able to see what politicians say,” Zuckerberg said. “I don’t think that Facebook or internet platforms in general should be arbiters of truth,” he said. “Political speech is one of the most sensitive parts in a democracy, and people should be able to see what politicians say.”
Big Tech is doing everything in their very considerable power to CENSOR in advance of the 2020 Election. If that happens, we no longer have our freedom. I will never let it happen! They tried hard in 2016, and lost. Now they are going absolutely CRAZY. Stay Tuned!!!

This does not make us an arbiter of truth. Our intention is to connect the dots of conflicting statements and show the information in dispute so people can judge for themselves. More transparency from us is critical so folks can clearly see the why behind our actions.
