Meta (Facebook) CEO Mark Zuckerberg claimed recently that the scientific “establishment” asked his platform to “censor” posts about COVID-19 that ended up being “debatable or true.”

In his comments during Thursday’s episode of the “Lex Fridman Podcast,” Zuckerberg discussed the “issues and challenges” of executing his platform’s policies on removing “misinformation.”

He said it can be “really tricky” when some content is false, “but may not be harmful, so it’s like, alright, are you going to censor someone for just being wrong, if there’s no kind of harm implication of what they’re doing?’”

“Just take some of the stuff around COVID earlier in the pandemic where there were real health implications, but there hadn’t been time to fully vet a bunch of the scientific assumptions. Unfortunately, I think a lot of the kind of establishment on that kind of waffled on a bunch of facts and asked for a bunch of things to be censored that, in retrospect, ended up being more debatable or true. That stuff is really tough, right? It really undermines trust,” Zuckerberg said.

Christina Pushaw, rapid response director for Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’ campaign, responded to Zuckerberg’s admission, tweeting, “I mean, this is true, but Zuckerberg gets no credit for saying this 3 YEARS too late. Back in 2020, Zuckerberg and other tech oligarchs had the power to stand up to the government’s censorship pressure, but they chose to be complicit instead.”

Jay Bhattacharya, professor at Stanford School of Medicine, tweeted, “Zuckerberg’s served as an enforcer for government propaganda during the pandemic. His regime of censorship on Facebook — in which falsehoods were allowed and truth censored — enabled school closures, vax mandates, toddler masking, and much else. Glad to see some humility here.”
