Howard Kurtz: Many Companies Consider Facebook, Twitter ‘a Toxic Environment for Advertisement’

‘It’s become a huge black eye for Mark Zuckerberg and his company’


KURTZ: "Yeah, and it’s become a huge black eye for Mark Zuckerberg and his company. Look, I’ve heard him tell you and others in interviews he doesn’t want to police political content, but now that he’s done this about-face that Susan Li just described, where he’s going to slap warning levels — warning labels even if they’re posted by the president or other political leaders, I think it shows how much pressure he is under, and this stock hit shows that as well. Look, what’s happening is that Facebook, Twitter, other sites have become so polarizing that many companies now consider them a toxic environment for advertisers."
