Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg
Facebook CEO and founder Mark Zuckerberg will meet three Irish members of an international committee targetting the spread of online misinformation in Dublin.
TDs Hildegarde Naughton, James Lawless, and Eamon Ryan of the International Grand Committee on Disinformation and Fake News will meet with the social media site’s founder tomorrow.
The Irish politicians will raise a number of concerns, including; the regulation of social media, transparency in political advertising and the safety of young people and vulnerable adults.
Why are so many newspapers giving Mark Zuckerberg the platform for a self-serving piece? Interview him by all means but don’t facilitate his propaganda when Facebook has done so much damage to news and real journalism. That’s just giving him an unchallenged PR platform.
