Facebook wanted its $130 million 'Supreme Court' to solve its policy enforcement problems. The board's decision to punt on Trump's ban shows how the initiative has backfired.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg. Drew Angerer/Getty Images Facebook formed its "supreme court" to help it navigate tricky content moderation decisions. It turned to the group in the case of Trump's suspension, but the board rejected part of its request. That leaves Facebook on its own when it comes to creating and enforcing rules.

Facebook’s hand-picked ‘oversight’ panel upholds Trump ban — for now

Facebook’s content decision review body, a quasi-external panel that’s been likened to a ‘Supreme Court of Facebook’ but isn’t staffed by sitting judges, can’t be truly independent of the tech giant which funds it, has no legal legitimacy or democratic accountability, and goes by the much duller official title ‘Oversight Board’ (aka the FOB) — has just made the biggest call of its short life: Facebook’s hand-picked ‘oversight’ panel has voted against reinstating former U.S. president Donald Trum...
