Zuckerberg: That Facebook influenced election is 'crazy'
NEW YORK - Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg says the idea that Facebook influenced the outcome of the U.S. election is a "crazy idea."
During an interview Thursday with "The Facebook Effect" author David Kirkpatrick, Zuckerberg responded to criticisms that Facebook helped spread misinformation by allowing for the sharing and re-sharing of fake news stories.
Zuckerberg says the idea that people voted the way they did because they saw a fake news story shows "profound lack of empathy" for people who voted for Donald Trump.
