"It's time to hold Mark Zuckerberg accountable".
However, Facebook and other outlets such as Youtube, Twitter, Fox, and MSNBC, have aired the advertisements which are now racking up millions of views.

While Democrats have repeatedly expressed outrage over Facebook's failure to stem the flow of disinformation on its site, Republicans, including President Donald Trump, have long claimed social media companies are censoring conservative speech. Also, I absolutely either do not understand that right-wingers are just trying to game me into making policy changes favourable to them, or am otherwise fine with it so long as it takes some of the heat off of me. Responses to the tweet were largely critical of Facebook.
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has been hosting private dinners and off-the-record dinners with conservative leaders, pundits, and journalists since July, Politico reported Monday.
