[News Punch] Billionaire globalist George Soros is gunning for Mark Zuckerberg again, saying he should not be in control of the social media giant Facebook.
Just as Mark Zuckerberg vowed to allow free speech on his social media platform, some leftists are now trashing Facebook as a would-be enforcement arm of all things evil.
Soros now wants the Facebook CEO and his COO to be deposed and has accused them of seeking to “maximize profits” without regard for consequences.
RT reports: Zuckerberg and Facebook Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg “follow only one guiding principle: maximize profits irrespective of the consequences,” Soros snarled on Friday in a New York Times op-ed. While his detractors might have used those exact words to describe the financier’s own “guiding principle,” Soros meant it as a scathing condemnation.
One way or another, they should not be left in control of Facebook.
Soros doesn’t just want Zuckerberg and Sandberg removed from power – he wants “those who spread false information” punished more severely. Lest one think he’s merely referring to users who circulate viral hoaxes, the iron-fisted philanthropist made it clear he had set his sights on Section 230, the now-well-known US law that protects social media platforms from liability for content their users post. Facebook, he said, should be treated as a publisher, not a platform, and “held accountable for the content that appears on its site.”
Accusing the Menlo Park behemoth of maintaining an “informal mutual assistance operation or agreement” with US President Donald Trump “in which Facebook will help President Trump to get reelected and Trump will, in turn, defend Facebook against attacks from regulators and the media,” Soros sounded for all the world like one of the ‘conspiracy theorists’ that the fact-checking NGOs he funds have tried to muscle off Facebook.
