Oversight Board slams Facebook, says tech giant withheld info in Trump case

NY Post

Facebook’s Oversight Board — which earlier this year upheld the company’s suspension of former President Donald Trump — slammed the social media behemoth on Thursday, saying it withheld information during the case about the uneven enforcement of the company’s content moderation system.

The board said Facebook withheld or provided incomplete information about its so-called cross-check program, which shields millions of high-profile and VIP users from the company’s standard content moderation rules.

The program was first exposed by the Wall Street Journal, which cited internal company documents.

Facebook did not inform the Oversight Board about the program, as it should have, when it referred the case of Trump’s suspension from the platform to the board.:snip:
