BUSINESS INSIDER: Nancy Pelosi wonders how top Facebook employees can 'look themselves in the mirror' because they 'make money off poison'
Avery Hartmans 14 hours ago
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi blasted Facebook executives and employees as "totally disreputable" over the prevalence of posts touting the right-wing conspiracy movement QAnon.
Pelosi made these comments in an interview with Kara Swisher on the first episode of Swisher's new podcast with The New York Times, called "Sway," which premiered Monday. During the course of the interview, Swisher brought up QAnon, the far-right conspiracy movement popular among some of President Donald Trump's supporters that claims a group of society's elite, including leaders in the Democratic party, are conspiring to commit a variety of heinous crimes, including child sex trafficking.
While QAnon is said to have originated on the anonymous online messaging board 4chan, in recent months, QAnon posts have become more widespread on mainstream social media sites like Twitter and Facebook. Both companies have announced plans to crack down on QAnon accounts.
Swisher asked Pelosi how much she holds Facebook accountable for QAnon content appearing on the site, to which Pelosi responded, "I hold them very accountable."
Pelosi also blamed Facebook for its role in the 2016 election, another time the company came under fire for insufficient moderation ahead of an election. Special counsel Robert Mueller found that Russian operatives significantly used Facebook in its campaign to interfere with the election.
