"Mark Zuckerberg this week reiterated his view that Facebook Inc.’s mission is to bring people together. But a Thursday speech, in which he positioned the social-media platform as a bastion of free speech, fueled more disagreement over how the tech giant handles content and influences public discourse.
The Facebook chief executive invoked Martin Luther King Jr. and abolitionist Frederick Douglass in a roughly 37-minute speech at Georgetown University, casting his company’s efforts to foster free and inclusive expression as a digital-age extension of the ideals behind the First Amendment and the U.S. civil-rights movement.
That message resonated with some, particularly on the right, with some supporting citing free speech in support of Mr. Zuckerberg. But others, including some on the left, accused the company of allowing false and misleading information that distorts public discourse, and of having fluid rules around the types of speech that are permissible.”
