Hillary Clinton says if she could be the CEO of any company she wanted to right now, it would be social media giant Facebook.
"[It's] the biggest news platform in the world," the former secretary of State and Democratic presidential candidate said Friday at Harvard University, where she was presented with the Radcliffe Medal for her "transformative impact on society."
"Most people in our country get their news, true or not, from Facebook," she said. "It really is critical to our democracy that people get accurate information on which to make decisions."
Clinton answered during a conversation with Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey, NTK Network reports.
Right now, Facebook's CEO is Mark Zuckerberg who co-founded the social media giant which has 2.2 billion monthly active users. Its second in command, Sheryl Sandberg, serves as chief operating officer.
Clinton also argued the case during the speech that Fox News and Sinclair Broadcasting were "delivering propaganda," adding there was a need for "more outlets for reliable information," The Hill reported.
"It's not just Fox, it's now Sinclair. They are essentially delivering propaganda ... We need more outlets for reliable information," Clinton said.
"Waging a war on the rule of law and a free press, delegitimizing elections, perpetuating corruption, rejecting the idea that our leaders should be public servants, undermining our national unity and attacking truth and reason — these should alarm us all, whether we're Republicans, Democrats, Independents, vegetarians, whoever we might be.
"Attempting to erase the line between fact and fiction, truth and an alternative reality, is a core feature of authoritarianism. The goal is to make us question logic and reason and sow mistrust toward exactly the people I think we need to rely on: our leaders, the press, experts who seek to guide public policy based on evidence, ultimately, ourselves,” she continued.
"It means calling out actual fake news when we see it, and supporting brave journalism and reporting. And yes, subscribing to a newspaper. Remember those?"
