In a Tuesday interview with CNN, Mark Zuckerberg defended Facebook’s handling of recent scandals and his own leadership of the company. He flatly rejected calls to give up his position as the chairman of Facebook’s board and said he had no plans to fire his top deputy, Sheryl Sandberg.
He argued that despite Facebook’s recent problems, the site “is a positive force because it gives more people a voice.”
It’s not surprising that Zuckerberg would defend his own company. But Zuckerberg is wrong: there’s no reason to think Facebook is a “positive force” and a lot of reasons to think the opposite.
