Hillary Clinton was at Harvard Friday to pick up an award, and she's making headlines for her quick answer to a hypothetical question. When asked what company she would like to be CEO of, Clinton instantly responded, "Facebook," reports CNET. The audience then laughed, as did Clinton herself (see it here), but then she got more serious. "It's the biggest news platform in the world," she said. "Most people in our country get their news—true or not—from Facebook." Even if she's not CEO, Clinton said she hoped "they get it right, because it really is critical to our democracy that people get accurate information," per the Washington Post. Clinton was there to receive the Radcliffe Medal, given to those who have a "transformative impact on society." (More Hillary Clinton stories.)
