How To Prep Before Grilling The Most Powerful Person On The Internet (HBO)

  • Published on Apr 12, 2018
  • Rep. Greg Walden, the chairman of the House committee that grilled Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg on Thursday, told VICE News it may be time for other tech CEOs to come before his committee to outline their own data privacy practices.
    “This is not just a Facebook issue,” he said in an interview, noting that other internet companies scrape and sell access to consumers’ data just like Facebook.
    Walden, an Oregon Republican, said he’d like to know from companies like Amazon or Google, “what are their protections, what are their user agreements? What should we know about their activities? What can they better regulate themselves, so we don't have to over-regulate here?”
    Walden chairs the House Energy and Commerce Committee, where Zuckerberg answered five hours worth of questions from members Thursday on everything ranging from its data sharing practices to its efforts to crack down on foreign election medddling. It was the Facebook CEO’s second round of questioning on the Hill, after he testified in front of a Senate panel on Tuesday - part of an apology tour on Capitol Hill meant to reassure lawmakers in the wake of the Cambridge Analytica data scandal.
    Walden - an Oregon Republican whose district is home to three Facebook data centers - has been cautious on enacting new regulations to prevent similar abuses in the past. After Zuckerberg's testimony, Walden said he was still giving Facebook the benefit of the doubt when it came to implementing reforms to its data policies.
    “They've got to show the consumer just us the consumer that they understand their problem, they're going to fix it and we're not going to see another apology tour in six months or two years from now,” he said.
    If Facebook fails to do so, Walden added, “there are things in terms of how we can better control our own data I think if they don't fix we can.”

    Today, Aug. 6, 2018, Facebook, TVclip, and Apple acted in concert to shut down important conservative commentary. They all announced they were censoring Alex Jones and others, claiming their "hate speech" was in violation of "community standards." These companies are actively, directly stifling conservative opinion on their platforms, all in clear violation of First Amendment guarantees to Free Speech. I SINCERELY hope Congress recognizes the immediate threat and present danger to our nation by these Orwellian actions. Facebook, TVclip, and Apples should be broken up for the monopolies they are.

    These old clueless morons in Congress got outsmarted easily as possible by Zuckerberg. This "prep" turned out to be worthless. They should have just had their interns and younger staff members be the ones asking these questions but that would not be good for their egos.

    the question vice and everyone should be asking Mark is whether or not Zuckerberg trusts the people that use his platform. The answer is no. With Palantir's Peter Thiel would tell you, both he and Zuckerberg will not trust anyone and exploit everyone for capital.

    LMFAO. When the United States Government tries to go after Facebook for their "user data problem". Ohhhhh that gets me every time. I mean really. The government who not to fucking long ago had their main National Security Agency exposed as having quintuple the amount of infractions against its own citizens. Hahahaha what a joke.

    If Mark has all this power, its because every one of us gave it to him. If you don't trust facebook, don't use it. Facebook needs to stop cyber bulling and offensive material but if you give your personal information, you gave it of your own free will!!

    Several of these men and women of congress had next to no clue about what they were asking the Zucc.
    This was a mistake, experts of the field should have been present in place.
    The Zucc will remember this weakness. Robots cannot forget. Facebook deletes nothing.

    People need to remember that this isn’t just about facebook’s security, this is also about the fact that Cambridge analytica’s illegally obtained information was used by Trump’s campaign and by Russians to put Trump in power, whether they did this independently from each other or in a coordinated effort.
