FB not to be distracted by WH accusations - spox

A spokesperson for Facebook Inc. fired back at the White House after the tech giant was accused of spreading harmful misinformation about the coronavirus pandemic.

"We will not be distracted by accusations which aren't supported by the facts," the spokesperson told CNN. "The fact is that more than 2 billion people have viewed authoritative information about COVID-19 and vaccines on Facebook, which is more than any other place on the internet."

Earlier, United States President Joe Biden claimed that social media platforms, such as Facebook, are "killing people" by not removing incorrect information about the pandemic in time.
