1. Disagree with him in part

He could invite the Rohingya in Myanmar how facecrook not fact-checking worked for them
How about, in the name of protecting free speech we did not shut down RTLM in Rwanda, even though the commanders on the ground in Rwanda said it needed to be shut down.
For those unfamiliar with RTLM, they were the station that helped to ignite the Genocide in Rwanda and was the base for information during the genocide. RTLM provided locations, names, etc of Tutsis, of Hutus married to Tutsis, and so on.The US military drafted a plan to jam the radio station that was denied.

Before you say extreme examples, let us all remember that facecrook was used by the extremists in Myanmar to spread anti-Rohingya propaganda
It was used in the Philippines to spread hatred and ferment violence and in Sri Lanka (Human Rights Watch)
In Assam, India suckerburgs neutral cite has done next to nothing to fully address posts that accuse the Bengali Muslims of being “parasites,” “rats” and “rapists,” and calling for them to be exterminated.
HRW flagged 213 instances of hate speech, similar to what was posted above, and the site only removed 96.
They did not close down all the accounts of those spreading hate speech and even when they do, they don't monitor to make sure that individual doesn't set up a new account -- which they often do

It appears facebook does not carefully monitor hot spots, unless it will get suckerberg hauled before congress.

Bill is full of it, has been and always will be full of it

2. Bill should like Facebook. They help promote the vaccine/autism myth and anti-vaxers.
