How can 46 House committee members sit in judgment of Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg and the social media platform’s practices when they have received contributions from said social media giant?
Why didn’t the media pick this up?
Zuckerberg has just testified before the House Committee and looked at friendly faces and that just anger just about everybody.
Remember, a lot of people really think these Congress swamp runners are going to tear him apart when it looks like once again, this is another showing at Kabuki theater.
According to a report last week by USA Today, some of these lawmakers are also the “biggest recipients of campaign contributions from Facebook employees directly and the political action committee funded by employees.”
The average Republican got $6,800, while the average Democrat got $6,750.
Committee Chairman Greg Walden, R-Ore., received $27,000, while Rep. Frank Pallone of New Jersey, the top-ranking Democrat, got $7,000.
