Texas Sen. Ted Cruz recently wrote that Facebook shut down a Chick-Fil-A appreciation day. Is that a fact? Gardner Selby of the Politifact Texas fact-checking team has the answer.
During Mark Zuckerberg’s testimony before the Senate Commerce and Judiciary committees last week, Cruz questioned the Facebook CEO about reports that Facebook editors had worked in the past to keep pro-conservative posts from appearing in newsfeeds. Zuckerberg denied Cruz’s claim. After the hearing, Cruz wrote a commentary in which he claimed that Facebook had shut down the Chick-Fil-A-focused page.
