Mark Zuckerberg: It’s “just wrong” to call Facebook a right-wing echo chamber

/ / News

Facebook Inc. Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg is pushing back on a growing political season narrative that his company has devolved into a right-wing echo chamber. In an interview with “Axios on HBO,” Zuckerberg dismissed such talk as “just wrong.” “I think sometimes there is a fine line between an important level of high energy around an important issue and something that can kind of tilt over into causing harm,” he said. During the wide-ranging, hour-long interview, Zuckerberg suggested an investigation of Apple Inc.’s App Store. “I do think that there are questions that people should be looking into about that control of the App Store and whether that is enabling as robust of a competitive dynamic,” he said.
