“Our promised digital utopia, we have discovered, has minefields.”

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Sen. John Kennedy (R-La.) today questioned Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg in a joint hearing with the Senate Judiciary and Senate Commerce committees.  This hearing comes after Sens. Kennedy and Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) called for the hearing early last month.  Below is the video of Sen. Kennedy’s questions during the hearing.

I don’t want to have to vote to regulate Facebook, but, by God, I will.  A lot of that depends on Mr. Zuckerberg,” said Sen. Kennedy.  “Mr. Zuckerberg has built an extraordinary company, and he’s done a lot of good.  But there are some impurities in the Facebook punchbowl, and they’ve got to be fixed.  Mr. Zuckerberg can spend $10 million on lobbyists and fight us or he can help us solve the problems.”
