Facebook takes down Conservative ad that featured BBC content | #TheCube

Facebook bans Tory ad that used footage of BBC's Laura Kuenssberg

Even more specifically, Zuckerberg was speaking to Facebook's decision to not fact-check advertising from politicians on the massive social network he runs. "I think people should be able to judge the character of politicians themselves".

The party had spent $48,310 on Facebook ads in the week up to November 30, but details of how much it spent since Saturday were not immediately available.

In October, an entire number of Fb employees contacted Zuckerberg and also various company policemans to sentence the insurance coverage.

The Facebook co-founder was unmoved.

Requested in regards to the letter through the CBS interview, Zuckerberg stated "this is clearly a very complex issue". When asked by CBS whether he'd been lobbied, Zuckerberg equivocated.

"Quite a whole lot of other folk occupy pretty hundreds of utterly different opinions", he acknowledged, repeating his stand that folk must "take into chronicle for themselves what politicians are announcing". Some of the most intense exchanges the CEO had during the 6-hour-long hearing were with Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), who questioned him if she could buy Facebook ads with lies about her political opponents.

The video featured Ms Kuenssberg, the BBC's political editor, saying "pointless delay to Brexit", while newsreader Huw Edwards says: "Another Brexit delay". Facebook acquiesced, however, due to "intellectual property" concerns.

Federal appeals court sides with Congress in battle for Trump's bank records
The court noted that the president had not disputed that the bank loaned him at least $130 million when no other bank would do so. That process may not take place if Trump appeals the decision to the Supreme Court.

King also pressed Zuckerberg on his formerly secret private dinner with President and Melania Trump and Facebook board member Peter Thiel.

"We talked about a number of things that were on his mind, and some of the topics that you read about in the news around our work", Zuckerberg told the cohost Gayle King.

NBC News reporter Ben Collins pointed out that the transparency Zuckerberg was celebrating apparently didn't extend to his refusal to reveal what the president said during their dinner.

"No better example of Facebook's power than Zuckerberg being asked here whether Trump lobbied him, rather than whether he lobbied Trump", Shubber tweeted.

Facebook says it has removed a Conservative Party ad that used BBC news footage on the grounds that it infringed on intellectual property rights. "I mean, I don't think that that's. that. ehhhh".

"There is no doubt that there are real issues we need to continue working on", he said, adding, "I think it's important not only to lose sight of the huge good that can be done by bringing people together and build a community".
