Mark Zuckerberg contacts Nancy Pelosi after Facebook refused to take down manipulated video; still waiting on response


Facebook chief executive Mark Zuckerberg reached out to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., in recent weeks to discuss how his company handles viral misinformation, but she has not called him back or personally replied, according to two people familiar with the exchanges.

Pelosi's decision not to engage with Zuckerberg, one of the most powerful technology executives in the world, reflects her frustration with how Facebook handled a manipulated video clip of remarks by the speaker, said the people, who were not authorized to speak publicly.

The video of Pelosi's onstage speech last month at a Center for American Progress event, in which she said President Donald Trump's refusal to cooperate with congressional investigations was tantamount to a "coverup," was edited to make her voice sound garbled and warped. The video circulated on several social platforms, including Facebook, which refused to take it down.

According to the people familiar with the matter, Pelosi has not been eager to hear Zuckerberg's explanation for the company's actions.

He values profits over decency.

3. Yeah, he's an executive of a vaporware social media fad.

However, Nancy Pelosi is the Speaker of the United States House of Representatives. Y'know, an actual physical country with people, property, and assets.

12. Worse. He's the ethically-void lost boy running a social engineering platform

selling his disinformation machine to anyone who will pay, including foreign governments and homegrown tyrants.

Facebook must be heavily regulated and/or broken up.

4. Good. Zuck will just mansplain the little lady on how bots & trolls & slander & lies are protected--

And how surely letting all this sewage run rampant on his moneymaking machine had nothing to do with Trump getting the White House.

15. Zuckerberg: The Recode interview

By Kara Swisher
Updated Oct 8, 2018, 2:21pm EDT

... Iím Jewish, and thereís a set of people who deny that the Holocaust happened. I find that deeply offensive. But at the end of the day, I donít believe that our platform should take that down because I think there are things that different people get wrong. I donít think that theyíre intentionally getting it wrong ...

22. What??????

An uber rich capitalist king calls a powerful gov't official who let a fake derogatory video go wild on his platform and she doesn't grovel and kiss his ass? What is the value of capital if you can't buy off a powerful gov't official? What is the world coming to.
