The ex-Guardian editor-in-chief talks about his role on the board and the challenges they face.
In an exclusive interview with BBC Click last week, he said: “this issue of how the internet is regulated, or regulates itself, is one of the most important issues imaginable. We’re facing a crisis of trust of knowing what’s true and what’s not true.”
The independent body will act as a “kind of supreme court, with the power to override decisions made by the social network’s own moderators and influence policy”, according to the BBC article.
When discussing the recommendations, Rusbridger added: “We will certainly publish them independently of Facebook. We’re in control of what we publish or not. Any suggestion that we were not publishing our opinions because Facebook didn’t like them would be deadly to the project.”
