Pelosi Is Giving Mark Zuckerberg the Silent Treatment Over a Video On Facebook

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is really trying to get a hold of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for a video that popped up on his social media platform, but she’s reportedly not calling him back due to her anger over it.

According to the Washington Post, Zuck has reached out to Pelosi in recent weeks but hasn’t received a reply of any kind over her frustration of a video released by a political group that showed Pelosi looking drunk and slow during her speech at the Center for American Progress last month. Facebook had refused to take the video down as it did not violate any of its rules.

According to WaPo, sources familiar say she doesn’t want to hear an explanation from Facebook as to why they didn’t take it down:

According to the people familiar the matter, Pelosi has not been eager to hear Zuckerberg’s explanation for the company’s actions.

The impasse between the nation’s most powerful Democratic lawmaker and the social media titan highlights broader tensions within the Democratic Party about Facebook and the company’s efforts to counter both foreign interference in elections and the spread of viral lies and blatant falsehoods.

A spokesperson for Pelosi declined to comment. Facebook declined to comment on Zuckerberg’s private communications.

While this may seem like a case of hurt feelings, knowing Pelosi and her subliminal way of communicating her intent, this looks to me like Pelosi looking to gin up hard feelings against Facebook, which may grease the wheels for better manipulation of social networks like his.

Calls have increased to break Facebook apart and turn the social network in a government utility, and Pelosi is likely only too happy to do it. The fake video would work well to become one more example of how platforms like Facebook disseminate false information and one more bullet in the Democrat’s gun in its quest to censor the internet.

Facebook itself has a long-standing “policy that stipulates that the information you post on Facebook must be true” according to WaPo. Censoring things like the video would increase accusations of censorship and bias, which is what Zuckerberg reportedly fears.

He rightly should, too.

Whether the video is doctored or not is irrelevant. People can release footage disproving the video’s claims. Pelosi is angry because Zuck didn’t censor the attack against her right off the bat, which says a lot of about Pelosi and how she thinks the private sector should cater to her and her whims.

It also works in Pelosi’s favor that she not know the reason Facebook didn’t censor it so that when the question is asked in a more public atmosphere, say a committee hearing, the question itself can elicit more distrust from the public.

That distrust turns into more calls for a government takeover.
