Zuckerberg Under Pressure to Resign

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is under pressure to defend himself as one of America’s premier media critics called for him to step aside as chairman of the board, citing a “serious crisis” at the tech giant.

Washington Post media columnist Margaret Sullivan wrote a scathing piece on Monday that declared Zuckerberg is “incapable of leading the broken behemoth that is Facebook.” She wrote that the Facebook founder blame-shifts, hides, denies and speaks “in the worst kind of fuzzy corporate clichés” when he’s faced with business disasters.

The veteran media critic said that if Zuckerberg sticks around — despite investors calling for his job — then he should at least “step down as chairman and appoint an independent director to oversee the board.”
