Skip to comments.The Curious Case of the Democrats vs Zuckerberg

The worst kind of fight in one in which you wish for both sides demise. Whatever satisfaction you get from watching one foe whipped is instantly tempered by the victors success. Its a no-win situation.
Watching Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg defend his digital empire before menacing lawmakers was one such brawl. In early September, Facebook disclosed that it had suspended hundreds of accounts associated with a St. Petersburg-based website that dispensed pro-Kremlin propaganda. The long-held suspicion that Putin operatives attempted to influence the 2016 election was confirmed.
Then the levee broke.
With appetites whetted with the possibility of finally cutting the social media giant down a peg, lawmakers, including an enlivened Senator Richard Burr (R-SC), demanded Facebook executives testify before Congress on the matter. This is just the tip of the iceberg, Senator Mark Warner (D-VA) declared, licking his massive chops with gleeful anticipation. During his recent big business conclave, former New York City mayor and slurpee-hater Michael Bloomberg said Facebook employees should be required to read every message posted on the platform -- a demand far beyond the realm of reasonability.
The pressure got to Zuckerberg. Out of patriotism or profit (the latter, most likely), he announced new restrictions on political ads. The social kingpin also revealed that he is working in full cooperation with the U.S. government, including Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who is probing to find out if President Trump colluded with Russia to defeat Hillary Clinton.

Cash cow or government control!
Zuckerberg’s idea of a safe space..... is in a bank vault.
More anti Trump hate. I hope Suckerberg strokes out!
So he’s handing over personal info without demanding a warrant. Evil b@st@rd.
Zuckerberg has had himself touted as a 2020 Dem Presidential candidate. Naturally, Hillary and other rival Dems want to derail his chances.
Let’s have FaceBook cough up details on all the other political spending by foreigners, NGO’s, Foundations, fronts for unions, US government entities and fronts, etc.
Boy, now there's a pessimistic attitude! I choose to view it 180 degrees out. The best fight is the one where you don't care who wins, only that they beat each other to a pulp. Either way I'm a winner!

Facebook is a National Security Agency platform. Any information or corruption is move information for the Agency’s usage in advancing the goals of the USG. Zuckerburg is the agency face.
Drooling idiots with delusions of Godhood.
Zuckerberg should be reffered to as “creepy ginger Mark Zuckerberg”.
Zoidberg has a better chance of getting elected than Zuckerberg.
With yellow teefs. You’d think a billionaire could afford dental care.
Nobody likes Zuck.
