Chuck Todd Goes Off on Facebook: Too Many Americans ‘Seeking Out Misinformation’ on Untrustworthy Platform

‘Facebook is certainly not a trustworthy platform’

EXCERPT:

TODD: “We now have a chunk of the electorate that has said 'no, no, no, don't tell me your facts. I don’t like your facts.' And even when they hear the facts from an on-again off-again news organization that does actually publish a fact, they run away from it. And they’re seeking out misinformation. We’re in a whole new world. And you ask me how to undo it? Look, I buy into the theory that the death of the local newspaper is basically was the beginning of this that shoved everybody to Facebook. And there’s just way too many people that use Facebook as their — and cable news as their information, as their information vehicles, and certainly Facebook is certainly not a trustworthy platform. I’m sorry. I'm yet to have anybody prove to me that Facebook can be a trustworthy platform for information right now."
