Tell Mark Zuckerberg: Donald Trump cannot rejoin Facebook with a free pass to lie.
Donald Trump cannot rejoin Facebook with a free pass to lie and incite violence.
Facebook needs to actually enforce their policies against disinformation and violent rhetoric, especially against political candidates.
Why is this important?
Donald Trump could be back on Facebook as soon as Saturday. And, believe it or not, because he’s running for President again Facebook has already declared they’ll give him a free pass from their fact-checking policy!
I don’t need to tell you how dangerous this is – the last time Trump’s election lies went unchecked, he abused his massive online megaphone to incite the violent January 6th insurrection – which led to the ban that may now be lifted.
Since that deadly day, bipartisan investigators in Congress have uncovered a mountain of evidence showing how Trump’s social media vitriol was like “rocket fuel for extremists” – which means holding his statements to the same factual standards as every other user is the absolute least companies like Facebook and Twitter can do.
