WASHINGTON (Reuters) – White House press secretary Jen Psaki said the White House is not surprised with reporting that shows Facebook is struggling to stay on top of coronavirus and vaccine misinformation on its platform.

“We have seen the reporting, of course, and … it is unfortunately, not surprising for us to hear that Facebook knew of these problems,” Psaki said.
