Zuckerberg says Facebook will not ban Holocaust deniers and other extreme conspiracy theorists

Original interview: Holocaust deniers are “deeply offensive”, but “I don’t believe that our platform should take that down because I think there are things that different people get wrong. I don’t think that they’re intentionally getting it wrong … It’s hard to impugn intent and to understand the intent. I just think, as abhorrent as some of those examples are, I think the reality is also that I get things wrong when I speak publicly.”

His subsequent statement of “clarification”: “Our goal with fake news is not to prevent anyone from saying something untrue, but to stop fake news and misinformation spreading.”
