Zuckerberg Announces Investigation into Claims of Anti-Conservative Bias on Facebook
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg says his company is conducting an investigation in response to allegations of bias in its "Trending Topics" section.
"This week, there was a report suggesting that Facebook contractors working on Trending Topics suppressed stories with conservative viewpoints," he wrote in a Facebook post tonight. "We take this report very seriously and are conducting a full investigation to ensure our teams upheld the integrity of this product.
"We have found no evidence that this report is true. If we find anything against our principles, you have my commitment that we will take additional steps to address it."
Zuckerberg also said he wants to meet with "leading conservatives and people from across the political spectrum" to get their thoughts on the issue.
"I want to have a direct conversation about what Facebook stands for and how we can be sure our platform stays as open as possible. ... Every tool we build is designed to give more people a voice and bring our global community together."
