“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.”
