Zuckerberg: If Anyone Gets Fired For Data Abuse ‘It Should Be Me’

The Infinite Brief
During an interview with Recode’s Kara Swisher published Wednesday, the Facebook CEO touched on Russians interfering with US elections, misinformation, data breaches, the company’s business model and more.

When asked by Swisher who’s to blame for the Cambridge Analytica scandal and related data misuse, Zuckerberg said he “designed the platform, so if someone’s going to get fired for this, it should be me.”

Swisher followed up by asking if he was going to fire himself. “Not on this podcast right now,” he said.

He also sparked outrage across the internet with a comment during the interview regarding Holocaust deniers. “I don’t think that they’re intentionally getting it wrong,” said Zuckerberg.

Facebook has dealt with several scandals this year, including the Cambridge Analytica controversy, and has been criticized for how it’s handling fake news and misinformation on the site.
