Posted on 11/07/2018 4:31:42 PM PST by NoLibZone
Parliamentary bodies from five countries are now calling on Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg to testify about the problem of fake news on Facebook.
And Zuckerberg is saying no to all of them.
The concept of an international grand committee is unprecedented, but it underscores the concern over the effect of disinformation on free elections.
Given Facebooks role in the spread of fake news during the 2016 U.S. elections, many nations have pressured the company to discuss the steps it is taking to prevent future spreads.

Parliamentary bodies from five countries also feel there is fake news.
I hope this android geek meets his financial end.
Zuckerberg is a democrat/marxist.
Zuckerberg and other leftists like those at Facebook,twitter, amazon , google etc have a monopoly on the internet.
Why doesn’t someone create a Facebook for conservatives and make a Billion dollars?
Stole his business idea
Stole all the shares from his BEST friend
Secretly sold users data
Stated in a confidential email to a friend that people who trust him are "dumb-f*cks".
Married in the community proprety state of California, the very day AFTER he took Facebook public.
Requested nude photos of users to protect them against the risk of revenge porn.
Secretly tried to get hospitals to release vast stores of patient data so I can help cure diseases.
Initially pursued total rights ownership of images uploaded to FB; if you'd been photoed as a happy youth with, say, a can of Coors then later got really famous, Zuck could be paid by Coors for zero work and YOUR old photo in a new ad while you, the centerpiece of the ad, would get NOTHING. Struck down after lengthy legal battles.
De-platformed numerous Conservatives because he didn't agree with their views, couldn't define hate-speech when asked by Congress.
Secretly requested banks give him his users' financial data, including transactions, so my users can check their balances on my site."
Digitally permitted his housing advertisers to filter out customers whose search histories were strongly associated with terms like "handicapped" , "mobility scooter" and "guidedog".
Admonished that people "build bridges instead of walls", all while building walls around his Palo Alto homes and around the huge Kauai Estate he bought and then threw the Hawaiians off of, an effort requiring 300 seperate lawsuits against local Hawaiian land claimants.
Established a "trustworthiness index" for ALL his facebook users while disclosing it to none of them.
Altered FB algorithms to flag content from conservative publications as spam.
Revered Augustus Caesar, leader of Rome who assured 200 years of peace via harsh rule, possibly arranging the execution of his own grandson. On a wedding anniversary trip to Rome, Zuck gushed so effusively over sculptures and monuments dedicated to Augustus that his wife joked that three people, not two, were on their trip.
For years, Zuck traditionally closed high-level Facebook executive meetings by shouting, "DOMINATION..!", perhaps half-jokingly.
Proposed installation in the homes of FB users special Facebook cameras that would follow and monitor users around as they went about their private lives inside their homes. But the cameras, Zuckerberg assured, would come with privacy settings which Facebook would, like, totally respect, or something.
Asked for user telephone numbers for 2 factor authentication but within weeks used that data for marketing purposes. If users chose to share their entire contact list, Facebook also shared that data with advertisers, even phone numbers of people who NEVER had a facebook account! After the Cambridge Analytica scandal FB pleged to reinvigorate user privacy but neither of these practices has stopped.
In the runup to the 2018 midterm elections, FB removed over 800 conservative political pages and accounts in a clamp down on what the social media company arbitrarily termed, inauthentic behavior. The ambitious political move affected 66 million FB users, most of them Conservative.
Wow, the Brits have reconstituted their empire, how could I have missed that?
“Why doesnt someone create a Facebook for conservatives and make a Billion dollars?”
People keep asking this but every time anything becomes successful, the left media moguls just buy it up. They will control or destroy opposition.
There already are conservative alternatives to Facebook.
But by their very nature they are going to be smaller operations and focused largely on politics.
If you want to find out what so and so from college or high school is up to now, you don't want to have to go through a variety of different facebook clones, all catered to this or that ideological group.
You want to have one place where that person and other people from back then are likely to be - and that's what Zuckerberg has tapped into.
He’s got too many billions to make that mistake again. Questions? Hillary didn’t have to genuinely answer questions...
in the spirit of the real ‘progressivists’....who created our anti-Trust laws,
a very serious application of our antiTrust laws is long, long overdue... vis a vis... google, Mr. Z, twitter, and while his service is pretty good....Amazon too
Well then someone should make a Facebook clone that “Is for freedom of speech unlike evil Zuckerberg owned sites that have a monopoly on the internet and who do censor what Zuckerberg doesn’t agree with”. And then that person can make a few billion dollars.
Put a bench warrant out for his arrest and stop his private plan when it lands in your country or flies over your airspace. Not that hard. Also, see Interpol Red Notice.
