article imageHillary Clinton said she'd like to run Facebook

By Lisa Cumming     May 28, 2018 in Technology
Perhaps alluding to Facebook's role in the 2016 election, Hillary Clinton told an audience that the company she'd like to run, if she had to pick, would be Facebook and that people need to "get accurate information on which to make decisions."
The former Secretary of State and 2016 presidential candidate was at Harvard University on Friday to receive the Radcliffe Medal from the the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study at Harvard during the university's commencement week. The medal is given to "individuals whose life and work have had a transformative impact on society."
During the ceremony Maura Healey, the Massachusetts Attorney General, asked Clinton, if she could be the CEO of any company, which company would she pick. Clinton replied, swiftly, "Facebook," then paused for laughter from the audience.
Clinton called the social media giant "the biggest news company in the world", according to The Washington Post.
"We can listen to really brilliant experienced writers like David Ignatius and try to keep up with the news, but most people in our country get their news — true or not — from Facebook," said Clinton. "Now Facebook is trying, you know, to take on some of the unexpected consequences of their business model and I, for one, hope that they get it right because it really is critical to our democracy that people get accurate information on which to make decisions."
Perhaps alluding to the 2016 election, Clinton, earlier this month, warned Australia of interference in their domestic politics by China and Russia.
"I think Australians need to be for Australians, Americans need to be for Americans," she told broadcaster ABC while on a speaking tour of the country...and whether it's Russia in a secret way interfering with our election and producing more than 3,500 ads to try to confuse our electorate, to try to damage me, or the Chinese looking to try to influence policy, we should say no." — Clinton to broadcaster ABC.
Clinton also recently spoke at Yale University's 'Class Day.'
