In a question and answer setting held at Harvard University’s Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study, the host posed a question to Hillary Clinton, asking which company she would choose to be the chief executive officer of in place of their current management.
“One question I did want to ask you is, if you could be a CEO of any company right now, what would you choose and why,” the host asked Clinton.
Clinton looked at the host and replied with a one word answer, “Facebook.”
“I just want to add, it’s the biggest news platform in the world,” Hillary added. “I mean we can listen to really brilliant and experienced writers like David Ignatius and try to keep up with the news, but most people in our country get their news, true or not, from Facebook.”
“Now Facebook is trying to take on some of the unexpected consequences of their business model and I for one hope that they get it right.”
Clinton then veered into typical Russian conspiracy theory talking points that she has become known for, again attempting to excuse her poor performance in the 2016 general election due to “Russian Interference” with the news, aiming it directly at Facebook, “It really is critical to our democracy that people get accurate information on which to make decisions.”
