Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is testifying before Congress this week. Millions of people around the world are interested in what he has to say. The stakes are high for Facebook as well as for our Republic. Censorship and regulation are double-edged swords. We’ve seen how the mainstream media “serves” the public, especially when there’s no competition. If social media end up self-regulating, then they will become just another echo chamber for the left.

Feel free to weigh in with comments. As for me, I hope someone asks Zuckerberg why Diamond and Silk are being persecuted by his company.
I also want to see Zuckerberg address what Facebook did to facilitate the Obama campaign’s use of scraped friends’ data.
I also want to know whether, like Cambridge Analytica, Facebook went back to Obama for America and demanded that they delete all scraped friends’ data. By the way, Cambridge Analytica bought the data that users sold to a professor. This differs very much from what happened with the Obama campaign.
So far, Zuck hasn’t addressed anything with regard to Obama, but the hearing just got underway. By the way, he isn’t under oath.
