Today Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Facebook was a “willing enabler of the Russian interference in our elections.”
“Facebook is taking extraordinary steps to protect our democracy. This type of hyperbole makes it hard to identify the real bad actors,” said Carl Szabo, Vice President of NetChoice. “Speaker Pelosi’s accusation that Facebook is a “willing enabler” of Russian interference in our elections is false and over-the-top. It’s obvious that Facebook is hugely invested in ensuring that its platform won’t be misused to aid election interference,” continued Szabo.
“Hyperbolic attacks on platforms won’t help solve the tech issues of today,” said Szabo.
