In an interview with Recode, Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg defended the site’s decision to not remove accounts that post false information, saying that some Holocaust deniers aren’t “intentionally getting it wrong.” “I don’t believe that our platform should take that down because I think there are things that different people get wrong,” he said. Zuckerberg went on to assert that he didn’t feel it was “right” to kick “someone off the platform if they get things wrong, even multiple times.” “What we will do is we’ll say, ‘Okay, you have your page, and if you’re not trying to organize harm against someone, or attacking someone, then you can put up that content on your page, even if people might disagree with it or find it offensive,’” he explained. Regarding factually inaccurate posts about the Holocaust and Sandy Hook, Zuckerberg said he would “move them down” on the News Feed. This comes as the platform has been in the hot seat for its role in hosting fake news that was widely disseminated in the 2016 election and the Rohingya crisis in Myanmar.
