CNN’s Jake Tapper on Tuesday called on the meme industry to “be ashamed” of the “very ugly” images it is producing.
“You know, this isn’t going to help the meme business.
You should be embarrassed,” he said.
“The problem is, you have a culture that is going to do anything it can to make money and that’s not going to be good for the country, that’s going to make a lot of money.”
“It is a horrible way to look at the meme. “
It’s an ugly, ugly business,” Tapper said. “
It is a horrible way to look at the meme.
It’s an ugly, ugly business,” Tapper said.
Facebook’s CEO Mark Zuckerberg is currently in India.
“I don’t think there’s anything that is more harmful to our democracy than an industry that relies on abuse and misdirection and deception for profit,” he told reporters last week.
Facebook has been criticized for a series of questionable and even illegal actions, including the use of fake accounts and deceptive advertising on its network.
“We’ve had people who have come forward saying they were harassed on Facebook because of their political views or their political beliefs.
And the company has tried to fight back,” Tappers said.
Broder said Facebook has changed its policies and will no longer be “a tool of misinformation and abuse.”
“Facebook has had a tough week, but we’re going to stay focused on building the best product and service we can for our community, which is our core values,” he added.
“This is an industry we need to be concerned about, and we need it to be strong, so we don’t go through another week like this.”
“I’m going to tell you this, Mark Zuckerberg.
I know you are worried about the negative publicity that this is going have, and I know this is an important time to protect our community,” he continued.
“And you’re going, ‘No, I can’t do that, I have to keep doing this because we’re losing.'”
Tapper called Facebook “the poster child of the meme.”
“You are the poster child for what is wrong with this meme business,” he concluded.
