"I don't want to live in a world where people can only post things that tech companies judge to be true", Zuckerberg said.
Reuters reported in October 2018, citing sources, that Facebook executives briefly debated banning all political ads, which produce less than 5 per cent of the company's revenue.
It was against this backdrop that Zuckerberg took the stage Thursday morning for a speech he touted as his most comprehensive, unfiltered exploration of the content policy issues facing his company.
Buckle up for some snarky headlines later this night - Mark Zuckerberg is going to stream a speech about his views on free speech and expression. The only options for video were a livestream on Georgetown's social media site or footage made available by Facebook.
The social media network also rebuffed requests that it remove a misleading video ad from Trump's re-election campaign targeting Democrat Joe Biden.
In his talk, Zuckerberg tried to position Facebook as a company that is trying to embrace a middle ground: one that errs on the side of free speech, while protecting its users from some of its more extreme examples, including pornography and content promoting terrorism. "There's no guarantee these values will win out".
Mr Zuckerberg "is the antithesis of free expression", Mr Stanton said.

Zuckerberg called this power "a fifth estate alongside the other power structures in our society".
Zuckerberg was interviewed at Facebook's headquarters by The New York Times ahead of the speech. "Giving people a voice and broader inclusion go hand in hand".
He acknowledged that when everyone has a voice, some people will use that to try to organize violence and influence elections. People of varied political beliefs are trying to define expansive speech as risky because it could bring results they don't accept, Zuckerberg said.
Facebook is under fire for its policy of running political ads with misinformation, exempting them from the normal third-party fact-checking process. "We agree it's better to let voters - not companies - decide".
The company's decisions have often been controversial, putting Facebook in a constant defensive posture with many government leaders, who either think Facebook is doing too much or not enough to police its properties. With the phoney ad, she was protesting Facebook's policy of not fact-checking politicians' speech or ads in the same way it enlists outside parties to fact-check news stories and other posts.
The system, which often fails to address content until after it's gone viral, doesn't apply to political ads. The company is building an independent oversight board that can be the last word on Facebook decisions that users disagree with.
Despite backlash against the policy, Zuckerberg maintained that he and Facebook don't want to "censor politicians or the news in a democracy". That means shocking news, including false information, tends to spread quickly there. Zuckerberg has been meeting conservative pundits to improve the relationship, though the company has said it hasn't found any evidence of bias.
