Facebook has faced criticism for its policy to not fact-check advertisements from politicians, but CEO Mark Zuckerberg is again defending the social network’s decision. In an interview that aired Monday, Zuckerberg said its important for people to make their own judgements about what politicians are saying. 

“What I believe is that in a democracy, it’s really important that people can see for themselves what politicians are saying, so they can make their own judgments, Zuckerberg told CBS This Morning co-host Gayle King. “And, you know, I don’t think that a private company should be censoring politicians or news.”

Facebook didn’t immediately respond to a request for additional comment.
