The former Chief Security Officer at Facebook said on Sunday that social media companies need to collaborate in an effort to “turn-down the capability” of conservative influencers.
Alex Stamos appeared on CNN’s “Reliable Sources” where he blasted conservative influencers, comparing them to violent ISIS extremists. He argued that companies like Facebook and YouTube need to “be brave” in working to “turn down the capability of these conservative influencers to reach these huge audiences,” citing that some YouTubers have larger audiences than “daytime CNN.”
“They are extremely radical, and pushing extremely radical views,” Stamos claimed.
Stamos also stated that telecommunication companies such as Comcast, AT&T, and Verizon need to remove conservative news channels from their lineup.
“And then we have to figure out the OANN and Newsmax problem that these companies have freedom of speech, but I’m not sure we need Verizon, AT&T, Comcast, and such to be bringing them into tens of millions of homes. This is allowing people to seek out information if they really want to, but not pushing it into their faces I think is really where we’re going to have to go here,” the former Facebook security chief said in the interview.
