Watch Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg Testify Before Congress

Facebook has become a social media monopoly that preys on conservatives, while propping up leftwing fascism.

Sadly, that’s not why their CEO, Mark Zuckerberg, appeared before Congress earlier this week. No, he was forced to appear after the revelation that his company had been sweeping up users private data and selling it to whomever they saw fit to sell it to.

After privately assuring senators that his company will do better, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is undergoing a two-day congressional inquisition that will be very public — and possibly pivotal for the massive social networking company he created.
Zuckerberg visited with senators in closed-door meetings Monday, previewing the public apology he plans to give Congress on Tuesday after revelations that Cambridge Analytica, a data-mining firm affiliated with Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, gathered personal information from 87 million users to try to influence elections.

He’s apologized many times already, to users and the public, but it is the first time in his career that he has gone before Congress. Zuckerberg will testify before a joint hearing of the Senate Judiciary and Commerce Committees on Tuesday and before a House panel on Wednesday.

In the hearings, Zuckerberg will not only try to restore public trust in his company but also stave off federal regulation that some lawmakers have floated.

Watch as Zuckerberg speaks to Congress:

By the way, Zuckerberg doesn’t “feel” like Facebook is a monopoly… but he also had a hard time coming up with any of Facebook’s competitors. Pro tip: if your company has completely locked down the market in such a way that you can’t even think of any competitors… you’re a monopoly.
