Facebook is far from perfect, but Mark Zuckerberg’s willingness to withstand pressure from Democrats to police speech on his platform is refreshing:

“I just believe strongly that Facebook shouldn’t be the arbiter of truth of everything that people say online. In general, private companies probably shouldn’t be, especially these platform companies, shouldn’t be in the position of doing that,” Zuckerberg added.

Perino said that Zuckerberg told her that Facebook refuses to intervene in censoring public posts unless there’s a threat of imminent harm. She added that Facebook is “hands off” when it comes to political speech.

He is.

But Zuckerberg’s inclination to let Facebook users make decisions for themselves doesn’t sit well with a lot of lefty authoritarian wannabes.
