Biden: Zuckerberg Is a ‘Real Problem’ and He May Have Broken the Law

7
Joe Biden offered some strong words against Mark Zuckerberg in an interview with The New York Times published Friday.
The former vice president said he sees the Facebook founder as a “real problem” and said it’s possible that his role in “propagating falsehoods” against Biden and other public figures may have broken the law. Biden was asked what he thought of Facebook after his campaign complained to the social-media giant last year about an ad that falsely claimed he blackmailed Ukrainian officials to help his son. Biden responded: “I’ve never been a fan of Facebook, as you probably know. I’ve never been a big Zuckerberg fan. I think he’s a real problem.”
Biden said his issue with Facebook is that it can host false information with no consequences, whereas a newspaper would be sued. Asked if Zuckerberg should face criminal penalties for false information on Facebook, Biden responded that he should face “civil liability” and added: “Whether he engaged in something and amounted to collusion that in fact caused harm that would in fact be equal to a criminal offense, that’s a different issue. That’s possible. That’s possible it could happen.

  1. A newspaper (or TV program) chooses the material and speakers. Social media lets (or use to let) anyone say anything freely – similar to a phone company when someone speaks on the phone. The problem starts when the social media starts censoring this or that – which now may put the social media into the category of “choosing” the material it displays.

  2. What kind of garbage is this? You can’t sue a newspaper for publishing an advertisement that contains false information. A publication does not have to verify the veracity of information in an advertisement before publishing it. Mr. Biden is completely ignorant of US law. Mr Zuckerberg should now sue him for defamation and alleging he committed a crime, to teach him about what’s legal and what’s not.

  3. Biden responded: “I’ve never been a fan of Facebook, as you probably know. I’ve never been a big Zuckerberg fan. I think he’s a real problem.”

    When even a liberal politician like Biden has issues with Facebook you know its really a website to stay away from

  4. Biden knows what a criminal looks like he sees one everytime he looks in the mirror . Quid pro quo Joe helped his son Hunter become a member of the criminal ranks as well . Joe should not throw stones from his glass house .

  5. Joe knows what a real criminal looks like , he sees one in the mirror every day . Quid pro quo Joe helped Hunter become a member of the criminal ranks as well . Joe should not throw stones at Mark from his glass house .
