Zuckerberg Allegedly Let False Anti-Abortion Video Back On Facebook To Placate Republicans
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg intervened to reinstate a false anti-abortion video to assuage conservative Republican politicians, according to internal company documents Facebook whistleblower Frances Haugen provided to Congress that The Financial Times examined.The incident was reportedly one of several instances of Facebook senior executives countermanding company policy to allow American politicians and celebrities to post whatever they wanted despite pleas from employees to moderate the content, according to the documents.Facebook particularly made exceptions for right-wing misinformation in the wake of relentless criticism from people such as former President Donald Trump that Facebook is biased against conservative views, the documents indicate.In one such instance, Zuckerberg was “personally involved” in a 2019 decision to reinstate an anti-abortion video that a moderator had removed from Facebook because of notable — and potentially dangerous — misinformation, according to the documents.Zuckerberg intervened after Republican politicians including Texas Senator Ted Cruz and Missouri Senator Josh Hawley wrote to accuse Facebook of censorship regarding the video, the Financial Times and Business Insider reported.The video falsely insisted that abortion is “never medically necessary,” the Financial Times recounted. There are multiple situations in which abortions are medically necessary to save the life or health of someone who is pregnant.In fact, Ireland eased its abortion laws in 2018 following outrage over one such case: the fatal septic miscarriage of 31-year-old Savita Halappanavar after doctors refused to perform an abortion on her because of legal constraints. The American College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists, as well as Physicians for Reproductive Health, issued a statement in response to the anti-abortion video saying that “without question, abortion can be medically necessary.”“The science of medicine is not subjective, and a strongly held personal belief should never outweigh scientific evidence, override standards of medical care, or drive policy that puts a person’s health and life at risk,” the joint statement read.Facebook did not immediately respond to requests for comment on Zuckerberg’s role in reinstating the anti-abortion video.Haugen, a former Facebook employee who worked on the company’s civic misinformation team, has provided copies of thousands of pages of internal Facebook documents that supported her testimony against Facebook earlier this month before the Senate Commerce Subcommittee on Consumer Protection.Haugen and many of the so-called “Facebook Papers” have revealed that company executives are well aware of how polarising Facebook’s content is. They also know that polarisation results in more customer engagement that increases company profits at the expense of social safety, Haugen testified.Zuckerberg has disputed that characterisation of the company.In testimony Monday before a U.K. Parliament committee, Haugen said Facebook “lionises growth” over all else and called for an overhaul of the company.She advocated for greater transparency and said that an outside regulator should insist that Facebook provide solutions to a litany of harms.“Instead of investing in 10,000 engineers to make the metaverse, invest in 10,000 engineers to make our world safer,” she urged. Related...Facebook Is Reportedly Planning A Name Change.

Minister Unable To Guarantee Workers Will Be Better Off Despite Pay Increase
A minister has been unable to guarantee that people will be better off next year despite promising millions of public sector pay workers a pay rise.Another Budget leak on Tuesday night revealed that over five million public sector workers, including teachers, police officers and the armed forces, are in line for a pay rise due to a hike in the national living wage.Chancellor Rishi Sunak is poised to increase the national living wage by 6.6% from £8.91 an hour to £9.50, following last year’s pay freeze for some public sector workers — bar those working in the NHS.But business minister Paul Scully could not say whether such workers would feel better off this year, due to fears that inflation could outstrip any rise and taking into account the cut to Universal Credit.If inflation outstrips any pay rise then in real terms, workers will actually get a pay cut in real terms.Asked by Sky News whether the pay rise would at least match inflation, Scully said: “Well I can’t tell you, because as I say, that’s what the payroll review bodies will do.“I can’t pre-empt what they’re going to do, I can’t predict what the chancellor isgoing to say.”Pressed on whether people would be better off this year, Scully said: “Well I can’t make those assumptions in terms of inflation and other costs at this moment in time, what I’m going to say is that pay packets are going to go up by 6.6% if they are on the national living wage at the moment.”Bridget Phillipson MP, Labour’s shadow chief secretary to the Treasury, called the offer “underwhelming”.“This underwhelming offer works out at £1,000 a year less than Labour’s existing plans for a minimum wage of at least £10 per hour for people working full-time,” she said.“Much of it will be swallowed up by the government’s tax rises, Universal Credit cuts and failure to get a grip on energy bills.”Liberal Democrat Treasury spokesperson Christine Jardine added: “Our public sector workers have been on the frontline of the pandemic and deserve a fair pay rise.“But under Conservative plans their incomes will be squeezed by tax hikes and the cost of living crisis, which risks wiping out this pay rise before it even reaches people’s pockets.“Our NHS and care home heroes face a £900 million tax grab due to Boris Johnson’s broken promise on raising national insurance.“It shows that on public sector pay, the Conservatives are giving with one hand and snatching away with the other.”
