WINNING TOGETHER We are millions of people taking action for progressive change

CREDO released the following statement in response to reports that Facebook has declined to remove a deceptively altered viral video of Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi:

“This is a stunning abdication of responsibility from a company with a well-earned reputation for facilitating the spread of malicious right-wing conspiracy theories,” said CREDO Action Co-Director Josh Nelson. “This week, conservatives released altered videos of Speaker Nancy Pelosi as a trial run to see what they’ll be able to get away with in 2020,” Nelson continued. “Facebook’s decision not to remove this video is a wink and nod to foreign actors and conspiracy theorists around the globe.”

“Facebook has a responsibility to protect its users from deliberately misleading political propaganda,” Nelson added. “This is just the latest episode in the company’s long history of utterly failing to live up to that responsibility.”

CREDO’s viral videos using actual footage of elected officials have been viewed hundreds of millions of times on Facebook and other platforms.

CREDO Action, part of CREDO Mobile, is a social change network of over five million activists, sending tens of millions of petition signatures and hundreds of thousands of phone calls to decision-makers each year. CREDO Action members also participate in meetings, protests and other direct action for progressive change.
