Zuckerberg admits mistake in flagging fake Pelosi video

Facebook chief Mark Zuckerberg said the firm took too long to flag a doctored video of US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. Facebook faced criticism for not taking down the altered clip which made Pelosi appear incoherent. Zuckerberg, speaking at a conference in Aspen, Colorado, said the slow response was ’an execution mistake on our side’.

When I first read the headline I thought maybe he sees the idiocy of his ways. Nope, he just regrets that they didn't act fast enough to get rid of it. Too many people saw it and that's just terrible for some reason. All those other videos manipulating the words of politicians are a-ok, but not this one. We can't simply allow the plebes to have a negative impression of Pelosi. Election meddling is okay when it isn't being done by imaginary Russian operatives.

They need to break up Facebook and Google the way AT&T was. Separate the the ads unit from the hardware and browser units, and change FCC article 230 the way Josh Hawley is calling for!

Allow me to translate for those of us that prefer simpler terms: Zuckerberg: I’m sorry we took too long to remove that video of drunk Pelosi, we’ll work on new algorithms that censor undesirable content faster.

Meanwhile anti-Trump memes flow with abandon in case you doubted their bias.
