  1. Deleting Facebook is the only way Zuckerberg will stop profiting off misinformation. Everyone has the right to say what they believe in, but giving political entities a worldwide platform to INTENTIONALLY spread falsehood is just plain wrong.

  2. Zuckerberg is a creepy middle aged man who believes wearing black pyjamas in public is a social statement. His excessive use of Botox means he has no expression or tells whatsoever. Facebook needs to be broken up, made 100% responsible for all political messages, videos, scams and false news, stop being allowed to take any paid ads for any politician messages from anyone anywhere, paid proper taxes, not be allowed to share and sell data to anyone without paying royalties to each individual that contributes their data voluntarily.

  3. You can see why Facebook would bring Clegg in (formally deputy Prime Minister of the UK) in to take these interviews and look responsible and human in a way Zuckerberg isn't capable.

  4. He's not defending the right to free speech, he is defending the right to lie and cheat. he defends his right to distribute these lies without consequence. He is not very honorable.

  5. 3 years off FB and don't miss it…it was trying to bat down the misinformation that made me quit…I could simply not keep up with the BS…

  6. Thankful I always lied to Facebook about any of my personal information. My stupid brother loved to think he was some computer expert yet wanted to tag me as a relative in Facebook. I dumped Facebook quite a while ago and don't miss it.

  7. Zuckerberg: "We are for freedom of speech"

    Student journalists: …. (Not freely allowed to ask follow-up questions of the prearranged questions)

  8. Political ads should be held to the same legal standard as cat food ads – you cant lie in a cat food ad. The standards you have to adhere to if you are selling products to consumers are light years from what political ads get away with. It shouldnt matter if you are selling cars or politicians.

  9. State sponsored propaganda is not free speech. You can't have your cake and eat it too the rules that constrain traditional media should also apply to Facebook.

  10. FB is a propaganda machine available to the highest bidder regardless of morals or ethical considerations. It's always about money – YOU are the product on Facebook, like it or not.

  11. Facebook care about the money. Whether it is mis-information or not it is not relevant. As long as you have the $$ they will give you what you want. They have grown to a size that makes any user-driven protest unimportant. The ONLY way to motivate these organisations to change is to regulate.

  12. W OW and yet Zuckerberg, the non-human he claimed to be, has placed me in FB jail a few times for my freedom of speech. What a little pos and so is this guy defending him. I hate Facebook!

  13. Cause Facebook stole your business
    Now your competitors with social media
    Trumps comes along
    Breaking news permanently on your monitor for 3 plus years .
    Yeah of course you hate Facebook.

  14. This guy can do all the talking he wants. But in the end Facebook is nothing more than a publisher and they must comply to the same laws that every publisher adhere to period end of discussion.

    Here is a link to section 230 for all of us to learn about and come up with our own comments: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Section_230_of_the_Communications_Decency_Act

  15. nick clegg….what about fact checking?!?!?!? we want the ability to target and delete FALSE INFORMATION get it? obvious lies!

  16. I'm American. I believe in the First Amendment. The GOVERNMENT must not block speech, especially political speech, BUT private companies MUST block hate speech, propaganda, misinformation, disinformation, and flat out lies, because this type of speech not only poisons minds but changes behaviors. Facebook is betraying freedom by giving bad actors with bad intentions access to the minds of billions of people. It's objectively wrong and is directly responsible for a whole lot of bad in this country and the world at large.

  17. Zuckerberg provides half answers telling what we want to hear and leaving out the part he knows will violate our sensibilities. He never clearly answered the Nov'17 news that personal data of 20M was shared with Cambridge Analytica who targetted them with select messages in the 2016 election. I deleted fb on the spot, much to the chagrin of my friends. We are in contact other ways.

  18. NICK CLEGG????? WTF??? Dude, retire with dignity. You look about as home in that "corporate casual" polo shirt as Winston Churchill would.
