    Facebook CEO Zuckerberg defends PayPal co-founder for supporting Trump

    Facebook CEO Zuckerberg reportedly defends PayPal co-founder for supporting Trump

    Published October 20, 2016 FoxNews.com

    Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg reportedly defended PayPal co-founder Peter Thiel after his support for Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump drew criticism.

    Thiel, a Facebook board member, donated $1.25 million to Trump’s campaign this week after several woman accused him of sexual assault.


    Zuckerberg commented on Thiel’s decision to support Trump and the importance of having diversity. A leaked screen shot was reported by Hacker News in what appears to be a staff memo to Facebook employees. CBS News reported they had confirmed the authenticity of the screen shot.


    “We care deeply about diversity. That’s easy to say when it means standing up for ideas you agree with. It’s a lot harder when it means standing up for the rights of people with different viewpoints to say what they care about. That’s even more important.” Zuckerberg wrote.


    He added, “We can’t create a culture that says it cares about diversity and then excludes almost half of the country because they back a political candidate.”


    Zuckerberg noted there could be many reasons one would vote for Trump that “do not involve racism, sexism, xenophobia or accepting sexual assault.” He went on to say that, “It may be because they believe strongly in smaller government, a different tax policy, health care system, religious issues, gun rights or any other issue where he disagrees with Hillary.”

    Wow. Well, gee, thank you Mark Zuckerberg, that's the first thing you've said in years that I agree with.

    Mark Zuckerberg had to fend off Facebook staff over censoring Donald Trump: Report

    By Douglas Ernst - The Washington Times - Friday, October 21, 2016

    Facebook
    CEO Mark Zuckerberg had to fend off employees during the U.S. presidential campaign who wanted to censor billionaire Donald Trump’s posts due to alleged hate speech.


    Controversial statements by Mr. Trump’s presidential campaign in December forced Mr. Zuckerberg to quash a mini-mutiny of staffers who threatened to quit if they could not delete the candidate’s posts.

    Sources close to the matter told The Wall Street Journal on that some of the comments in question involved a plan to ban Muslim immigrants while the U.S. determines how to best combat the Islamic State group.


    A Facebook spokeswoman did not address the specifics of the newspaper’s story, but did speak on the guidelines used to moderate posts, saying the “context” of a quote is considered before posts are removed.


    “That context can include the value of political discourse,” the spokeswoman said, The Journal reported Friday. “Many people are voicing opinions about this particular content and it has become an important part of the conversation around who the next U.S. president will be.”

    The Journal’s story coincides with another ideological brush fire Mr. Zuckerberg had to extinguish over Facebook board member and Trump supporter Peter Thiel.


    “I want to quickly address the questions and concerns about Peter Thiel as a board member and Trump supporter,” Mr. Zuckerberg wrote in an internal message to employees, Forbes reported Wednesday.

    “We can’t create a culture that says it cares about diversity and then excludes almost half the country because they back a political candidate. There are many reasons a person might support Trump that do not involve racism, sexism, xenophobia or accepting sexual assault.”
