If anyone expected something spectacular from Mark Zuckerberg appearing before Congress, you were disappointed. Many of those questioning Zuckerberg have received campaign contributions from him. Facebook worked directly with and for the Obama Administration. The Democrats will do anything in their power to protect one of their biggest champions.
The Democrats might talk tough, but it’s all political theater.
Most (maybe all) of the people who work at Facebook are Leftists. If there are any conservatives, they are keeping their mouths shut for fear of losing their jobs.
Yes, Ted Cruz did a great job questioning Zuckerberg, but nothing will come of it. There are too many Pat Gearys in Congress.
For the record, I don’t want the government determining what’s acceptable and unacceptable content. Of course, I don’t want Facebook making that determination either, but once the government gets involved, it’s all over.
Zuckerberg says he might accept some controls. That’s like Br’er Rabbit pleading with Br’er Fox, “Don’t throw me in the briar patch!” He’ll go along with some controls in order to keep any new social networks from challenging Facebook. He’s made his billions. He knows the Democrats will protect him. “Hate speech” will be defined in such a way as to censor any and all conservative views. It’s already happening.
