WASHINGTON — House Speaker Nancy Pelosi lashed into social media giant Facebook on Wednesday — accusing founder Mark Zuckerberg of ‘pandering to the White House’ after he refused to police political speech on his platform.

“Facebook, all of them, they’re all about making money. Their business model is to make money at the expense of the truth and the facts,” Pelosi said Thursday, accusing Facebook of trying to “hide under the freedom of speech.”

In an MSNBC interview on Thursday, Facebook CEO Zuckerberg criticized Twitter — saying he did not think social media networks should be fact-checking political speech and saying he would not be enacting similar measures on his platform.
