Sen. Richard Blumenthal (R-Conn.) has continued his attacks on social media giant Facebook. In a series of tweets Sunday, Blumenthal derided Facebook Vice President of Global Affairs, Nick Clegg for his appearances on several corporate media news outlets.
Sen. Richard Blumenthal (R-Conn.) doubled down on his calls for Facebook’s CEO to testify before the Senate following a whistleblower’s claims. In an interview Wednesday, the Republican lawmaker said Mark Zuckerberg has an obligation to tell the public about how his company is weaponizing hate speech and endangering children.
The latest Facebook whistleblower claimed the tech giant was lying to investors about its safety standards and also suggested it was prioritizing profit over ensuring public safety.
