Mark Zuckerberg: Facebook’s ‘Partnership’ With Rappler is (Fake) News To Me

0084F74A-027D-4366-BE53-F9AA9ECC3FCE.jpegDENVER, Colorado (The Adobo Chronicles, San Francisco Bureau) – The Adobo Chronicles caught up with Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg as he arrived in Denver for a much-needed R&R after being grilled in the U.S. Senate this week.

We asked him about Rappler’s announcement that Facebook was partnering with the online news source as well as with Vera Files to fact-check news on social media.

”That’s news to me.  I don’t remember signing a Memorandum of Agreement with either organization for a partnership in fact-checking news on social media.

Zuckerberg added:

654B6113-FE78-43AC-BBB8-C229FD109AA3”How can I partner with Rappler when its CEO Maria Ressa blamed Facebook for political division and the proliferation of fake news in the Philippines? I also know tht Rappler is also guilty of publishing fake news, so there’s no way I would allow Facebook to partner with them.”
