(thepostmillennial) During a Sunday interview on CNN, disgraced former chief of security for Facebook Alex Stamos called for mass censorship of conservatives on Facebook. This, despite his own failures with content moderation, as child pornography was widely distributed during his watch as chief of security.

Stamos is now an adjunct professor at Stanford University’s Center for International Security and Cooperation. During his tenure at the social media giant, Stamos was involved in multiple controversies over what Facebook allowed on their platform and was widely criticized for failing to remove sexualized images of children.

During Santos’ tenure at Facebook, the BBC “reported dozens of photos to Facebook, but more than 80% were not removed. They included images from groups where users were discussing swapping what appeared to be child abuse material.”

According to the BBC in 2017, some of the images they reported were from “groups where users were discussing swapping what appeared to be child abuse material.”

Rather than doing anything about the images, Facebook allegedly reported the BBC journalists to the authorities and cancelled an interview. Facebook then issued a statement: “It is against the law for anyone to distribute images of child exploitation.”

According to the BBC, out of the 100 images they flagged, only 18 were removed by the tech giant and the journalists were told that the other images did not violate Facebook’s “community standards.”

Facebook’s rules forbid convicted sex offenders from having accounts. Yet, the BBC discovered five convicted pedophiles with facebook profiles, even though Facebook rules prohibit convicted sex offenders from having accounts. The BBC reported all of the accounts to Facebook and none of them were taken down.

Anne Longfield, the Children’s Commissioner for England told the BBC after seeing the results of their research, “I have been very disturbed by what I have seen, very disappointed that one year on we are still seeing images that are very sexualised, totally in my view unacceptable.”

The National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC) also criticized Facebook after seeing the BBC’s findings. “Facebook’s failure to remove illegal content from its website is appalling and violates the agreements they have in place to protect children,” a spokeswoman told the BBC.
