Zuckerberg: It's hard to impugn intent and to understand the intent. They do this because they are anti-Semites, and denying the Holocaust is part of a strategy of making Jewish people less sympathetic and delegitimizing Jewish identity.
But there are indeed people who naively share Holocaust denial-related content on Facebook without being in on the scam, just as there are gullible people who fall for every other kind of hoax-vaccines causing autism, 9/11 being an inside job, NASA faking the moon landing, etc. Zuckerberg is correct that it's not always easy to differentiate hucksters from kooks.
In the wide-ranging Q&A, Swisher took Zuckerberg to task for allowing outlets like Infowars to spread made-up stories about how "Sandy Hook didn't happen" and asked why Facebook didn't just remove stories that are undeniably false.

When asked about who was to blame for the Cambridge Analytica scandal and subsequent data misuse, the 34-year-old entrepreneur and philanthropist took responsibility, saying he "designed the platform, so if someone's going to get fired for this, it should be me".
"The reality is also that I get things wrong when I speak publicly", Zuckerberg said.
That's an awfully forgiving stance, and after his muddled justification of Holocaust deniers prompted public outcry, Zuckerberg exercised it immediately. By Zuckerberg's rationale, it's incumbent on users to factcheck willfully erroneous material distributed on his company's channels. "These issues are very challenging but I believe that often the best way to fight offensive bad speech is with good speech".
The Facebook chief's comments were slammed online.
When asked about evidence that has surfaced regarding Russia's interference in the 2016 USA presidential election, Zuckerberg stated that Facebook has identified Russian hacking group APT28 trying traditional methods like "phishing people's accounts" in the middle of 2015 and notified the Federal Bureau of Investigation. "Facebook has a moral and ethical obligation not to allow its dissemination". She did not explain what that threshold looks like. The creators of Infowars, Bickert testified, "have not reached the threshold".
