Harry Reid to Facebook and Google: Do More to Crack Down on Fake News



Outgoing Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid has called on Facebook and Google to do more to stop the proliferation of fake news stories. The two companies have been criticized for allowing fake news to be posted and to come up on organic searches during the 2016 Presidential elections.

Did all the fake news help to swing the election in favor of Donald Trump? This is a question which historians will be asking for years, but certainly Hillary Clinton supporters feel that they did.

Democratic Senator Harry Reid told The Huffington Post that tech titans like Facebook and Google have a social responsibility to do more to provide their users with accurate and true news, even if to do so means earning a little less money. “Take Facebook for example. They’re doing well and make a lot of dough, ” said Reid. “But maybe they can forgo a few advertisements and spend a little more time looking at some of the junk that comes out on [their sites].”


Harry Reid also made the explosive accusation that the Trump campaign knew about the Russian hacks and even colluded with the hackers. He said, “Someone in the Trump campaign organization was in on the deal. I have no doubt. Now, whether they told [Donald Trump] or not, I don’t know. I assume they did. But there is no question about that. So there is collusion there, clearly.”
