Rogan How do you ░░░░░░░░ handle things when they ░░░░░░░░ a big news item ░░░░░░░░ s controversial Like there ░░░░░░░░ a lot of attention ░░░░░░░░ Twitter during the election ░░░░░░░░ of the Hunter Biden ░░░░░░░░ story Zuckerberg Yeah we ░░░░░░░░ that too Rogan The ░░░░░░░░ York Post so you ░░░░░░░░ censored that as well ░░░░░░░░ So we took a ░░░░░░░░ path than Twitter Basically ░░░░░░░░ background here is the ░░░░░░░░ I think basically came ░░░░░░░░ us some folks on ░░░░░░░░ team and was like ░░░░░░░░ um just so you ░░░░░░░░ like you should be ░░░░░░░░ high alert There was ░░░░░░░░ we thought that there ░░░░░░░░ a lot of Russian ░░░░░░░░ in the 2016 election ░░░░░░░░ have it on notice ░░░░░░░░ basically there s about ░░░░░░░░ be some kind of ░░░░░░░░ of that s similar ░░░░░░░░ that So just be ░░░░░░░░ So our protocol is ░░░░░░░░ from Twitter s What ░░░░░░░░ did is they said ░░░░░░░░ can t share this ░░░░░░░░ all We didn t ░░░░░░░░ that What we do ░░░░░░░░ we have if something ░░░░░░░░ reported to us as ░░░░░░░░ misinformation important misinformation we ░░░░░░░░ use this third party ░░░░░░░░ checking program cause we ░░░░░░░░ t want to be ░░░░░░░░ what s true and ░░░░░░░░ And for the I ░░░░░░░░ it was five or ░░░░░░░░ days when it was ░░░░░░░░ being being determined whether ░░░░░░░░ was false The distribution ░░░░░░░░ Facebook was decreased but ░░░░░░░░ were still allowed to ░░░░░░░░ it So you could ░░░░░░░░ share it You could ░░░░░░░░ consume it Rogan When ░░░░░░░░ say the distribution is ░░░░░░░░ Zuckerberg It got shared ░░░░░░░░ how does that work ░░░░░░░░ It basically the ranking ░░░░░░░░ News Feed was a ░░░░░░░░ bit less so fewer ░░░░░░░░ saw it than would ░░░░░░░░ otherwise So it definitely ░░░░░░░░ By what percentage Zuckerberg ░░░░░░░░ don t know off ░░░░░░░░ top of my head ░░░░░░░░ it s it s ░░░░░░░░ But I mean but ░░░░░░░░ a lot of people ░░░░░░░░ still able to share ░░░░░░░░ We got a lot ░░░░░░░░ complaints that that was ░░░░░░░░ case Obviously this is ░░░░░░░░ hyper political issue so ░░░░░░░░ on what side of ░░░░░░░░ political spectrum you either ░░░░░░░░ we didn t censor ░░░░░░░░ or censored it way ░░░░░░░░ much Rogan Right Zuckerberg ░░░░░░░░ we weren t sort ░░░░░░░░ as black and white ░░░░░░░░ it as Twitter We ░░░░░░░░ kind of thought hey ░░░░░░░░ if the FBI which ░░░░░░░░ know I still view ░░░░░░░░ a legitimate institution in ░░░░░░░░ country it s a ░░░░░░░░ professional law enforcement They ░░░░░░░░ to us and tell ░░░░░░░░ that we need to ░░░░░░░░ on guard about something ░░░░░░░░ I want to take ░░░░░░░░ seriously Rogan Did they ░░░░░░░░ say you need to ░░░░░░░░ on guard about that ░░░░░░░░ Zuckerberg No I don ░░░░░░░░ remember if it was ░░░░░░░░ specifically but it was ░░░░░░░░ basically fit the pattern ░░░░░░░░ When something like that ░░░░░░░░ out to be real ░░░░░░░░ there regret for not ░░░░░░░░ it evenly distributed and ░░░░░░░░ throttling the distribution of ░░░░░░░░ story Zuckerberg What you ░░░░░░░░ evenly distributed Rogan I ░░░░░░░░ evenly in that it ░░░░░░░░ not suppressed It s ░░░░░░░░ Zuckerberg Yeah yeah I ░░░░░░░░ it s it sucks ░░░░░░░░ mean because it turned ░░░░░░░░ after the fact I ░░░░░░░░ the fact checkers looked ░░░░░░░░ it no one was ░░░░░░░░ to say it was ░░░░░░░░ right So basically it ░░░░░░░░ this period where it ░░░░░░░░ getting less distribution So ░░░░░░░░ I mean but I ░░░░░░░░ like I think it ░░░░░░░░ it sucks though I ░░░░░░░░ in the same way ░░░░░░░░ probably having to go ░░░░░░░░ like a criminal trial ░░░░░░░░ being proven innocent in ░░░░░░░░ end sucks Like it ░░░░░░░░ sucks that you had ░░░░░░░░ go through a criminal ░░░░░░░░ but at the end ░░░░░░░░ re free I don ░░░░░░░░ know if the answer ░░░░░░░░ ve been don t ░░░░░░░░ anything or don t ░░░░░░░░ any process I think ░░░░░░░░ process was pretty reasonable ░░░░░░░░ know it s we ░░░░░░░░ let people share it ░░░░░░░░ obviously you don t ░░░░░░░░ situations like that Rogan ░░░░░░░░ s certainly much more ░░░░░░░░ than Twitter s stance ░░░░░░░░ it s probably also ░░░░░░░░ case of armchair quarterbacking ░░░░░░░░ or at least Monday ░░░░░░░░ quarterbacking I should say ░░░░░░░░ in the moment you ░░░░░░░░ reason to believe based ░░░░░░░░ the FBI talking to ░░░░░░░░ it wasn t real ░░░░░░░░ that there was going ░░░░░░░░ be some propaganda So ░░░░░░░░ do you do Zuckerberg ░░░░░░░░ Rogan And then if ░░░░░░░░ just let it get ░░░░░░░░ there and what if ░░░░░░░░ changes the election and ░░░░░░░░ turns out to be ░░░░░░░░ That s a real ░░░░░░░░ And I would imagine ░░░░░░░░ those kind of decisions ░░░░░░░░ the most difficult.”
