Facebook, Google defend efforts to remove hate speech before Congress

Facebook and Google defended their efforts to remove hate speech from social media sites amid questions from lawmakers in an appearance before the U.S. House Judiciary Committee. Representative Jerrold Nadler, who chairs the panel, said white nationalist groups target communities of color and religious minorities through social media. Social media firms use algorithims and human reviewers to remove hateful speech. Google wants to be a “part of the solution,” company executive Alexandria Walden said at hearing, adding that Google has invested “heavily in machines and people to quickly identify and remove content that violates our policies against incitement to violence and hate speech.”
