CNN’s Stelter Worries Facebook Board’s ‘Free Speech Advocates, First Amendment Absolutists’ Will Unban Trump

‘If Trump is brought back on Facebook, it will likely be for those reasons’


STELTER: "I think it's that they have this board, which is a group of outsiders that they can then say, it's not our call anymore. It's not Mark Zuckerberg making the decision. It's this outside board, and they are the ones reviewing the evidence. And, of course, whatever they do with Trump, it's going to set a precedent for other world leaders and former world leaders and potential future world leaders. So, there's an immense amount of pressure on this board, even though it's ultimately Facebook that is deciding to shove this content moderation problem over to the board. It ultimately is still Facebook's call.”
