Facebook Employees Take the Rare Step to Call Out Mark Zuckerberg | WIRED

in hive-116221 •  last month 


WHAT HAPPENS WHEN an immovable object meets a disgruntled workforce? We're about to find out at Facebook. CEO Mark Zuckerberg has consistently refused to budge from allowing politicians—most conspicuously, Donald J. Trump—to post content that would violate the company's rules against harm and misinformation.

 In dealing with recent Trump pronouncements promoting misinformation about voting and using the language of racism to encourage the shooting of protesters, Zuckerberg has chosen to leave posts (mostly cross-posted tweets) unfettered. Even Twitter, which previously gave Trump similar leeway, now warns users before they can see those Trump misrepresentations.
