Warning that rising abuse on various social media was being fueled by fake news, the president of Italy's lower house of parliament said Facebook must do much more to stamp out hate speech on its site.
Laura Boldrini is herself often the focus of sexist insults and online threats. She complained to Facebook managers in November about hate speech on the social network and put forward several proposals on ways to deal with the problem.
Boldrini told Reuters in a gilded, art-filled room in the parliament building, "Two months after our meeting, they have done nothing. They have not even written to me about what I said. Good manners would have expected at least a reply."
