Wednesday on CNN’s New Day, Sen. Richard Blumenthal called on Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg to testify before the Senate about “whistleblower” Frances Haugen’s recent testimony about the social media giant.
Blumenthal said the Senate Commerce Subcommittee would be asking Zuckerberg to testify, saying the tech CEO “has an obligation” to tell the public about how it is “amplifying and weaponizing hate speech, disinformation, but also the anxieties and insecurities of teenagers.”
“We can’t count on Mark Zuckerberg to tell us the truth. He has lost all trust if he ever had any,” Blumenthal added. “We will be asking him to come testify before our subcommittee… If he wants to explain these documents, thousands of them, his own research, his own reports that show how they are putting profits ahead of people and endangering children, he should come tell it to our committee and to the American people himself. ”
Pure political posturing. Blumenthal doesn’t care about endangered children. The reason Facebook and the leftist Zuckerberg are suddenly in the Democrat Party’s sights is that Dems want to take over the social media giant and exercise even more censorship over right-wing content on the site.
