A Facebook executive has blamed society, not the social network, for political disinformation and COVID-19. In an interview on Sunday, Andrew Bosworth denied blaming the spread of disinformation on social media and insisted people are exposed to misinformation because they want to.

When asked if vaccine hesitancy would be the same with or without social media, Bosworth said people would believe whatever they wanted regardless of what they were seeing on social media.

“Individuals are people who choose to believe or not believe a thing, they are people who choose to share or not share something,” the Facebook executive stated. “…Our ability to know what is misinformation is being laid out by itself, I think. I am very upset with the idea that we have enough fundamental correctness, even in our most scientific research centers, to exercise that kind of power over one citizen, another human being. . “

His comments come after the Biden administration blamed Facebook in July for spreading disinformation about COVID-19.
