Is Facebook Thwarting Democracy and Can it Be Stopped?

Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg is under fire for a meeting recently with conservative political figures in private including Fox News’ Tucker Carlsen and right-wing radio shock jock Hugh Hewitt. In the face of pushback under the hashtag #DeleteFacebook, Zuckerberg defended the meetings saying he meets with people from across the political spectrum.

Meanwhile, Democratic Presidential frontrunner Elizabeth Warren has been in a feud with Zuckerberg over his platform promoting and profiting off of fake news and violent content. Warren recently launched a series of provocative ads on Facebook taking on the issue.
