Facebook Was Complicit In What Happened, Says Writer After Oversight Ruling | Morning Joe | MSNBC

Facebook was justified in banning then-President Donald Trump from its platform the day after the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol, but it needs to reassess how long the ban will remain in effect, the social network’s quasi-independent Oversight Board said Wednesday. Journalist Carole Cadwalladr joins Morning Joe to discuss.

Facebook Was Complicit In What Happened, Says Writer After Oversight Ruling | Morning Joe | MSNBC


    1. Roy, keep ignoring the fact that Biden did/is doing exactly what you’re vilifying Trump for. You’re hypocritical clowns and you’re too pretentious to even realize it.

    2. @Tēōdēdē You can send me your government checks, I will donate them to PETA or Planned Parenthood, which do you prefer?

    3. @Tēōdēdē And you have no links to back up facts,LOL unless you have evidence, never happened.

    1. @GreenKrickett That would be contempt of Congress, it would be nice to see him punished for something.

  1. I bailed on Facebook in 2012. It seemed like a platform where bad actors will eventually have their way with our data. I didn’t trust it.

    1. I bailed on it when I heard what Cam Analytica did with brexit.. crimes occur on Facebook..

      Throughout the decade there’s been loads of things affecting political influence and in-turn society around the world.. all through fb..

      Stand for something, stop investing in it..

    2. @R YouTube owned by Google not Zuckerberg (FB) So there’s no comparison between the two & YouTube comments are not personal information ℹ️ it’s called DIGITAL FOOTPRINT. FYI google offer us the option to ERASE it ! (FB) never did & never will .

    3. Facebook is a billion dollar version of individuals on Facebook or YouTube, do and say just about anything for a click. Facebook doesn’t care how their platform is used the click are what are important and big wells of clicks can’t ever be wrong (unless Congress or the FBI is getting involved) with that philosophy.

    4. @myko freder I’ve been in FB jail for over 190 days so far for not breaking their rules…

    1. @New Usurname Hes just another example of someone who have no clue of what goes on around him/her.

    2. No. Mark Zuckerberg is complicit. Not Facebook. Allowing Trump to continue posting was Zuckerberg’s decision because Trump paid him.

      Let’s go after Zuckerberg.

  2. Baby Cheesus will join MyPillowSpace and start pillowing… when it actually opens. 🤣

  3. Facebook & the Rep party, were much too slow in dealing with little donnie….
    Now that it’s too late: what do we do?!?!

    1. I sometimes think it would be good to let all the GOP states form their own country. All the economic powerhouse states like Mississippi, Louisiana, Alabama, Missouri, Oklahoma etc. Texas could be the leader of all the basket case states. Would be great to watch them starve.

    2. @mdo686
      Sounds like a great idea. As long as they stay in their area, and don’t ask any help from us.

    3. @mdo686 I would rather round up the terrorists and rebuild. The US can stand to lose 20% of the rural deadweight. Folks in the cities will sober up immediately if we do that. And then the John Birch Society can be slaughtered.

  4. Twitter permanently banned rump and never looked back. That’s all the proof you need that FB is complicit.

    1. If his lies were just something for the election they might reverse it, he is still doing what he did before the election nothing has changed. If they put him back on the next day they would get valid complaints. Bidens got an account where he puts out his policy and accomplishments, opinion at times but no lies or campaign to have corrupt Putin type control of the country.

    2. @myko freder LOL and we’re supposed to take your word for it, what’s next if people see their shadow it means it trying to eat you LOL.

    3. Twiiter and youtube dont play u banned u banned. But FB is a little wishy washy, glad he is still banned” ban him for life and lock him up

    4. No. Mark Zuckerberg is complicit. Not Facebook. Allowing Trump to continue posting was Zuckerberg’s decision because Trump paid him.

      Let’s go after Zuckerberg.

    1. Social media isn’t my thing. But, they have the right too control their own business model. If you don’t like it. Then go somewhere else. There are plenty of other options..
      Like the GOP has always said. Let the consumer decide who wins or loses.

  5. Facebook better get your s*** together they had a long enough time to evaluate and judge what they need to do if not I feel sorry for Facebook

    1. @Richard Flores
      “FACEBOOK” 👀is at the forefront and there’s a lot of members worldwide 🌍 observing their behavior.

  6. I was going to bail on FB if they allowed him back on but now thinking it’s just the right thing to do regardless, their integrity level leaves a bit to be desired.

    1. @Blue Crow Yes, I know it can be a real struggle to communicate in English when English is not your first language. I applaud your valiant, albeit clumsy, first baby steps toward mastering the language. Keep trying. Eventually you may be able to write a sentence that includes a subject, a verb, and a predicate. What a great day that will be for you. Good luck, Mr. Crow.

    2. @Jon Stone oh look your Back usually it’s your Knees you’re on ⚫clean yourself up a little and get back out there and get some on that federal unemployment wage💥and enjoy arizona

    3. @Blue Crow By the way, junior, there’s a newfangled thing called *”punctuation.”* Maybe you’ve heard of it. Or maybe not. Maybe you were asleep that day in junior high school. Or do they call it middle school where you’re from?

  7. I have family members that have been brainwashed by the garbage on Facebook. I`m old enough to remember when everyone formed their own opinion’s based on the same facts. Now we have “alternate facts” Some people have created their own reality bubble and they won’t even accept information unless it confirms their world view. I don’t know what the solution is.

    1. Every citizen must understand the mechanics of propaganda, the process for verifying emprical validity, implicit biases, and of course have reliable information. That could take years, perhaps decades.
      Platforms like Facebook inherently oppose the healthy functioning of Democracy because such corporations function as machines to deliver and maximize wealth to whoever owns these, in spite of the consequences.

    2. Nothing has changed. We’re simply aware of it now. You think folks live in a bubble today? Go back to the 1970s.

    1. But you haven’t. And no one I know who has bleated about deleting Facebook has actually done so. They’re just liars.

  8. Thank you SWEET JESUS! I know it is just 6 months band.. Please DEAR GOD, let it be 4ever when they debate over in 6 months

  9. When Facebook, Twitter, and all the other social media platforms, when they were founded and in their early years could never have imagined they’d have to be making “corporate” policies regarding these LIARS.

  10. “FACEBOOK” 👀is at the forefront and there’s a lot of members worldwide 🌍 observing their behavior.

    1. Facebook is becoming to hard to handle.
      You looking good that I couldn’t resist to say hi
