The Biden campaign criticized Facebook for not censuring posts from President Trump that they believe are inaccurate.
The story: The campaign send a three-page letter to Facebook, blasting the company for what it described as a failure to enforce its policies about misinformation. The letter, signed by Biden’s campaign manager Jen O’Malley Dillon, accuses Facebook of making empty promises about keeping election misinformation in check, pointing to President Trump’s post about mail-in-voting, which, according to the Biden campaign, meet the criteria for censorship on the platform because they show “illegal behavior.”
The letter comes in response to the president’s repeated warnings that mail-in-voting is flawed and possibly fraudulent.
In detail: The letter called Facebook “the nation’s foremost propagator of disinformation about the voting process” and called on the platform to censor posts both from the president and his son, Donald Trump Jr. “Facebook’s continued promise of future action is serving as nothing more than an excuse for inaction,” O’Malley said.
