At an award ceremony at Harvard University where Hillary Clinton received the prestigious Radcliffe Medal for Impact on Society, she was asked what company she would want to be CEO of. Her answer? Facebook.
Without a moment's hesitation she told the crowd at the ceremony that "it's the biggest news platform in the world".
"Most people in our country get their news - true or not - from Facebook."
She also acknowledged the social media giant has faced difficulties thanks to its business model, referring to the Cambridge Analytica scandal, in which 87 million Facebook users had their information shared improperly.

"It really is critical to our democracy that people get accurate information on which to make decisions," she told the crowd, reports CNET.
There is no word from The Clinton Foundation about her comments.
