WASHINGTON - The Biden administration slammed Facebook for not doing enough to censor posts that contain misinformation about the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

White House press secretary Jen Psaki said Thursday that the White House is working to flag "problematic posts" found on Facebook which spread disinformation. "There's about 12 people who are producing 65 percent of anti-vaccine misinformation on social media platforms.

All of them remain active on Facebook, despite some even being banned on other platforms, including Facebook — ones that Facebook owns," Psaki said.
