With Facebook, you are the product that is being bought and sold. It sells your information to companies. And it lies about it. And when founder Mark Zuckerberg is caught, he makes a heartfelt apology. And then does it again.
Well, he testified yesterday in Congress, and he’s doing so again today.
They were the biggest hearings in Congress in recent memory.
And the politicians who are “grilling” Zuckerberg? They’ve received hundreds of thousands of dollars in donations from him over the years.
TONIGHT I'm going to show you 13 clips from his testimony, with my comments between.
Here's the bottom line:
He has said for a decade he’s stop selling his customers private information. He hasn’t. It’s his entire business model.
When pressed, he blames the victim:
Facebook users are either stupid, or don’t read the contract, or they’re the ones causing the problem.
When he gets really agitated, he plays the Russia card, the fake news card — and again lies, according to his own vice president in charge of ads.
But he uses it as an excuse to hire 20,000 human censors — just until his robot censors can take over.
That’s Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook — a leading donor to many of the congressmen to whom he spoke.
