Joe Biden's campaign declared war on Facebook, accusing it of failing to live up to its promises to rein in Trump
Summary List Placement Presidential candidate Joe Biden attacked Facebook over its handling of posts by his rival, President Donald Trump, and claimed that the platform is not keeping its own promises to fight misinformation. Axios published a three-page later by campaign manager Jen O'Malley Dillon to Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg. It said the platform had failed to stop misinformation about the election, and had actually gotten worse since making public commitments. "Earlier this month, Facebook committed to finally acting on its 'responsibility to protect our democracy' by 'clearing up confusion about how this election will work' and by 'fight[ing] misinformation about how to participate," the email said. "On the same day, Mr.Trump took to your platform to spread falsehoods about mail voting, and Facebook took no meaningful action. "We were told then that Facebook was working to determine how best to apply its new, more aggressive approach. "Three weeks have now passed. Rather than seeing progress, we have seen regression." Facebook has come under huge pressure to prevent the spread of misinformation during the coronavirus pandemic and in the run up to the November presidential election.
