House Speaker Nancy Pelosi told reporters Thursday that Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg “panders to the White House” to avoid federal taxes and regulations. Earlier on Thursday, Zuckerberg said that Facebook and other online platforms shouldn’t be ‘arbiters of truth’ explaining that there’s a fine line between deciding what’s true and what isn’t as President Donald Trump prepares to sign an executive order to address big tech censorship.
“The fact is is that what they are is somebody who’s avoiding taxes and regulation,” Pelosi said. And that’s what they’re about. And, so, when you see all they want is to not pay taxes, which they got their tax break in 2017. The tax scam that gave all those advantages to the high end.”

She added, “And they don’t want to be regulated. So they pander to the White House. You see what Facebook’s Zuckerberg is saying today about all of this. They’re just pandering. Tax cuts, no regulation, our business model is to misrepresent the facts and be a platform to do that, and to try to hide under freedom of speech, which is, of course, a complete violation of everything freedom of speech stands for.”
