Here is what Mark Zuckerberg said in his testimony before a Senate Committee:

He also said that while Facebook is beefing up its use of AI to spot and remove offensive content, it will be five to 10 years before the company will have tools to do this automatically.

So I was correct in my phrasing in the New York Times op ed:

Media companies of all kinds must accept responsibility and deploy artificial intelligence and plain old elbow grease to the task. And people of good will must play their part by calling out falsehoods and reporting those responsible.
