This another example Democrats calling for people to do as I say and not as I do?
Fox News reported:
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi called on advertisers to boycott social media networks unless the outlets agree to restrict “dangerous” political speech, even as her campaign spent over $180,000 on Facebook ads over the past week.
“Advertisers are in a position, they have power to discourage platforms from amplifying dangerous and even life-threatening disinformation,” said Pelosi at an online conference on social media hosted by George Washington University on Tuesday.
Pelosi said advertisers should use “a combination” of tactics to pressure social media companies to change their policies, including pulling ad revenue.
In January Nancy Pelosi accused Facebook of being “accomplices for misleading the American people with money from God knows where.” She believes the company hasn’t done enough to root out falsehoods on its platform.
She criticized Mark Zuckerberg for using a “business model is strictly to make money. They don’t care about the impact on children. They don’t care about truth. They don’t care about where this all is coming from. And they have said that even if it is not true they will print it.” She also called the company’s behavior “shameful.”
Although Facebook has been criticized by both Conservatives and Democrats both see there is still a huge value in using the social media platform.
But if Nancy Pelosi is such a Facebook hater, maybe she should lead by example and leave it. Maybe she should follow her own advice and stop giving them ad revenue.
