WH 'not surprised' Facebook knew of misinformation issues

White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki told reporters during a briefing on Wednesday that US President Joe Biden's administration was "not surprised" by the reporting that Facebook social media company allegedly was having a harder time handling COVID-19 misinformation than it was publicly revealed.

"We've seen the reporting, of course, and it is unfortunately not surprising fos us to hear that Facebook had known of the issue possibly from the beginning of the pandemic," Psaki said.

She added that the government considers misinformation a public health issue and is currently concerned with the platforms that regularly amplify anti-vaccine content over accurate information.
