Facebook Caves, Targets Trump

Facebook Caves, Targets Trump

(NewsReady.com) – In May, after Twitter added fact checks to two of President Donald Trump’s tweets, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg weighed in on the controversy. Zuckerberg said his company wouldn’t take the same actions because he didn’t want to be the “arbiter of truth.” Fast forward to now, and the company has caved into filling that role.

On July 21, Facebook added information to one of Trump’s posts after the president discussed mail-in voting. The commander-in-chief said this alternative to physically going to the polling stations to cast a vote will lead to corruption. Zuckerberg’s company attached a message that prompts users to get voting information on usa.gov.

It seems as if social media companies, in their quest to be “fair,” are just muddying the waters more. There’s no reason why either social media giant should do anything to posts from the president of the United States.
