Bill Gates addresses debate over political ads on social platforms

At the New York Times' DealBook conference, Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates cited the Clinton administration's antitrust case against the tech firm as the reason Microsoft's Windows Mobile isn't the industry leader today. Gates also spoke on the issues facing social media companies surrounding political advertising. He says platforms like Facebook and Twitter shouldn't be responsible for fact-checking campaigns, and that ad-targeting practices are the real issue at hand.
