On Wednesday Facebook gave a presentation to US media outlets about its efforts to combat misinformation. On Friday Business Insider reported that Facebook has drawn in scrutiny after allowing the conspiracy-theory site Infowars to have a page on its platform. At a press event in which it emphasized its crackdown, it was pressed by CNN why Infowars still had a presence. Facebook suggested Infowars published "analysis" and said banning pages would erode freedom of speech.
