U.S. congressman challenges Zuckerberg over response to Facebook’s handling of misinformation

U.S. Rep. David Cicilline challenged Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg on Wednesday over the platform’s response to content containing misinformation. The congressman cited several videos – including one that called studies finding hydroxychloroquine to be ineffective against COVID-19 as “fake science” – and asked whether the platform was so big “you can’t contain deadly content.” Zuckerberg said there were policies in place, and they have a “relatively good track record” removing COVID-19 misinformation.
