The call kicked off with the operator's suggestion that Facebook is "happy to take a couple of questions on yesterday's news" but would prefer to focus on what it wants to talk about — namely anything but The New York Times story. Amidst the strategic fluff, Zuckerberg did come out strongly on one thing — denying any knowledge of or involvement in Facebook's hiring of Definers Public Affairs, a Washington, D.C.-based Republican opposition research firm. "I learned about this reading it in The New York Times yesterday," Zuckerberg said.

The New York Times recently published a bruising Facebook report saying, among other things, that the social network knew about Russian interference well before it said, feared Trump supporters and lobbied against critics. The nature of the article stunned even jaded tech observers, but now Facebook has issued a point-by-point rebuttal. It denied that it knew about Russian activity as early as spring of 2016, prevented security chief Alex Stamos from looking into it and that it discouraged employees from using iPhones out of spite for Tim Cook's comments.
Facebook Inc (FB.O) Chairman and Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg on Thursday defended his response to Russian election meddling on the world's largest social media network and issued a new plan aimed at stifling misbehaviour while maintaining a vibrant hub for online speech. Many U.S. lawmakers said after the report that the government must regulate or investigate Facebook, which has become a daily source of information for more than 2 billion people globally. "I've increasingly come to believe that Facebook should not make so many important decisions about free expression and safety on our own," Zuckerberg wrote.

Philanthropist and former hedge-fund executive David Magerman -- not George Soros -- was the initial donor behind an effort urging regulators to break up Facebook Inc. , Axios reported Thursday. On Wednesday, a New York Times report said Facebook hired a Republican-linked public-relations firm that tried to tie billionaire Soros to funding the "Freedom from Facebook" campaign. Magerman confirmed to Axios that he was behind the campaign. He told Axios that Facebook had a "huge financial disincentive to protect users' data," and his goal was to get users to rethink their reliance on the social-media giant. Magerman said he's given $425,000 to the campaign.
The night before, the New York Times had reported that Sheryl Sandberg, Facebook’s chief operating officer, worked behind the scenes to prevent the company’s board and the public from understanding the full extent of Russia’s misinformation campaign on the social network. The employees were used to the public microscope.
NEW YORK (AP) — Facebook said it's making progress on detecting hate speech, graphic violence and other violations of its rules, even before users see and report them.
Facebook Inc. Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg and the company’s board of directors took issue with a report suggesting the social-media giant deliberately played down the impact of Russian interference on the platform. An article in the New York Times on Wednesday said top executives at Facebook overlooked warning signs and at times sought to conceal the scope of the problem from lawmakers and the public. Mr. Zuckerberg testified before Congress in April and took responsibility for the company’s response to the problem.
Regarding Elliot Kaufman’s “Even the Libertarians Get Luckey Sometimes” (op-ed, Nov. 13): Wise leaders surround themselves with talented supporters and staff. Instead, the Silicon Valley elite, like the folks at Facebook, Google and Twitter, appear to surround themselves with sameness, resulting in groupthink and an increasingly tone-deaf echo chamber. Facebook’s business culture appears to more closely resemble a sorority house than a Fortune 500 business.
Mark Zuckerberg has denied any knowledge of the "dark arts" public relations firm accused of leading an aggressive lobbying campaign against Facebook's critics in order to distract from its scandals.
