The new reporter of Fox New, Dana Perino, interviewed with the CEO of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg. The conversation went on air at two o’clock in the afternoon on Friday. The news was premiered on the Fox News Channel.
Perino dug in and asked him about his opinions on Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA). She asked him about his take on the Twitter issue, which wanted to shut down the American President’s Twitter account.
Zuckerberg said that since it is a democratic country, he didn’t believe that private companies should talk about censoring any politician. He said that he firmly believed that at the end of the day, it is the people who should take their stand on what they think to be credible and should vote for the person they have a firm belief in. He also added that he didn’t want any tech companies passing judgment as to such on politicians.
Perino also asked Zuckerberg about his opinion on Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s (D-MA) frustration on the topic that Facebook will not take any steps to police the political ads.
Mark said that since it is a democracy, people have the right to decide the best for themselves and it is firmly their choice to believe in the politicians’ words
Perino went on to ask Zuckerberg about his opinion on the Silicon Valley conflict on which he said that ninety percent of the donations made by the tech companies are in favor of Democrats, and hence, he understands why people are asking him whether his opinions get a fair share or not.
He signed off on the interview by saying that conventional news does very well on social media, not just Facebook.
