WASHINGTON (Reuters) – A year-long review by a former Republican U.S. senator says Facebook Inc has “significant work to be done to satisfy” concerns from conservatives that believe the social media website to be biased against conservatives.
The report released Tuesday from former Senator Jon Kyl said Facebook has hired staff dedicated to “working with right-of-center organizations and leaders.” U.S. President Donald Trump and many Republicans in Congress accuse various social media firms of bias, while tech companies have rejected the charge.
