Mark Zuckerberg says it's "just wrong" to consider Facebook a right-wing echo chamber driven by conservative voices. But data from his own company shows that's exactly what Facebook is.

"I don't think that the service is a right-wing echo chamber," Zuckerberg told Axios in an interview published on Wednesday. "I think that everyone can use their voice and can find media that they trust that reflects the opinions and the life experiences that they're having."

Zuckerberg said there was a "meme" circulating online "that frankly is wrong, that says that okay, our algorithm is just trying to find things that are going to enrage people somehow, and that that's what we try to show people. [But] that's not actually how our systems work."
