Mark Zuckerberg Responds To Ari Melber And Maria Ressa’s Attack On Facebook

630BBF8A-A737-4A70-972E-B050D2E742CCSAN JOSE, California (The Adobo Chronicles, San Jose Bureau) – In an MSNBC commentary by Ari Melber, Facebook came under fire for allegedly allowing the proliferation of fake news in the U.S. and elsewhere. The piece focused on what Melber says is the social media giant’s support for ‘authoritarian’ governments like that of Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte.

In that piece, Melber used quotes from Maria Ressa, CEO of the Philippine online news source, Rappler.

Ressa, who has been desperately campaigning to “take back the Internet,” said that:

Facebook needs to moderate its greed, clean up the toxic waste, and be accountable for its role as the new gatekeeper to information.

Today, Facebook Founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg finally responded to both Melber and Ressa.  His response was short and sweet: “GO FACT YOURSELVES!”

End of story.
