COO Sheryl Sandberg: We Use Alternative Facts and DNC Lies to Combat
COO Sheryl Sandberg said her company would present
“alternative facts” to combat what she described as “misinformation”
spread on Facebook’s digital platform. She offered her remarks during
a Wednesday Senate Intelligence Committee hearing ostensibly examining
interference in U.S. elections” in Washington, DC.
Sandberg’s comments below:
transcript below [emphasis added].
Finding a line between what is hate speech and what is
misinformation is very, very difficult, especially if you’re
dedicated to expressing free expression, and sometime free
expressing is expressing things you strongly disagree with. In the
case of misinformation, what we do is we refer it to third-party
fact-checkers. We don’t think we should be the arbiter of what’s
true what’s false, and we think that’s really important.Third-party
fact-checkers then mark it as false. If it’s marked as false, we
dramatically decrease the distribution on our site, we warn you if
you’re about to share it, we warn you if you have shared it, and
importantly, we show related articles next to that so people can
see alternative facts. The fundamental view is that, bad
speech can often be countered by good speech, and if someone says
something not true and they say it incorrectly, someone else has the
opportunity to say, ‘Actually, you are wrong. This is true,’ and
that’s what we’re working on through our systems.
also spoke of Facebook’s claimed efforts to combat what she described
as “fake news” in an ostensible effort to protect the digital
making progress on fake news. We’re getting rid of the economic
incentives to create it, and we’re limiting the distribution it gets
on Facebook. We demote articles rated by third-party fact-checkers as
false, we warn people who have shared them or are about to share them,
and we show them elated articles to give them more facts.
