Twitter’s Jack Dorsey fires back at Zuckerberg, defends fact-checking Trump tweets

by Joseph A. Wulfsohn | Fox News  |  Published on May 28, 2020

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey fired back at Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, who criticized the tech giant’s decision to fact-check President Trump’s tweets about mail-in voting.

In a preview clip of his interview with Fox News’ Dana Perino, Zuckerberg weighed in on the escalating dustup between Trump and Twitter. The issue at hand was the labeling of the president’s tweets sounding the alarm on potential voter fraud in the upcoming election, pointing to “fact checkers” that say there is “no evidence” that expanded, nationwide mail-in voting would increase fraud risks. Twitter’s own analysis was later scrutinized by critics.

“We have a different policy than, I think, Twitter on this,” Zuckerberg told “The Daily Briefing” in an interview scheduled to air in full on Thursday.

“I just believe strongly that Facebook shouldn’t be the arbiter of truth of everything that people say online,” he added. “Private companies probably shouldn’t be, especially these platform companies, shouldn’t be in the position of doing that.”
