BuzzFeed News: Facebook Said It Removed A Militia Event Page Threatening Violence In Kenosha. It Didn’t.

BuzzFeed News: Facebook Said It Removed A Militia Event Page Threatening Violence In Kenosha. It Didn’t.. “[Sandra] Fiehrer’s complaint was one of the 455 sent to Facebook warning of a militia event violating the company’s policies. Together, they inspired four manual and numerous automated reviews of the event page by Facebook’s content moderators, which all concluded it did not violate the company’s rules. CEO Mark Zuckerberg would later tell employees it was ‘an operational mistake.’ In those same remarks, which were made public after being reported by BuzzFeed News, Zuckerberg suggested to employees that the company had removed the event and militia page from the platform the next day. But internal company discussions obtained by BuzzFeed News show that’s not true. The event was actually deleted the day after the shooting, not by Facebook, but by a page administrator for the Kenosha Guard.”
