Billionaire Patrick Soon-Shiong on Wednesday advocated for a change in how people consume news on social media, calling misinformation and how it's spread the "cancer of our time."
"The short attention span we're creating in this millennium is actually very dangerous," said Soon-Shiong, the new owner of the Los Angeles Times. "It's the unintended consequences of social media."
Soon-Shiong, also chairman and CEO of biotech firm NantKwest, was responding to a question about the state of media and its relationship to social networks.
Platforms such as Facebook's News Feed have revolutionized how people consume media and how news organizations deliver content. But they have also been criticized for spreading so-called fake news and misinformation.
Soon-Shiong, a former surgeon, told "Squawk Alley" that fake news is the "cancer of our time and social media is a form of metastasis of news. We need to change that."
He said people cannot differentiate from "fake news," "real news" or "opinion news" on Facebook.
Benioff just bought Time magazine for $190 million in cash from Meredith Corp. Bezos owns The Washington Post.
CORRECTION: This story has been revised to clarify that Soon-Shiong was referring to fake news on social media as the "cancer of our time."
