Posted on 04/11/2018 6:02:07 AM PDT by davikkm
Mark Zuckerberg faced a mixture of tough and softball questions at yesterdays Senate hearing. Many questions were left unanswered, and members of the House will have to pick up the slack today. The toughest questions in the Senate hearing came from Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), Sen. Dan Sullivan (R-AK) and Sen. Ben Sasse (R-NE), who grilled Zuckerberg on Facebooks political bias, its possible status as the largest publisher in the world, and its definition of hate speech.
Democrats, when they werent urging Zuckerberg to do more to censor so-called hate speech, focused on irrelevant panics like Russian propaganda and fake news, both of which are unlikely to have had a significant impact on voters in 2016.
1. What is Facebooks definition of fake news?
Sen. Sasse made an effort to press Zuckerberg on his definition of hate speech, (Zuckerberg couldnt give one), but no-one asked the Facebook CEO about his definition of fake news, the latest excuse for censorship on the platform. Zuckerberg has given a definition in media interviews, but congressmen looking to expose the weakness of Facebooks claim that it is not a publisher should highlight some of his, and other Facebook executives recent statments. In particular, Zuckerberg has said he wants to decide what is quality news and promote it to users, while the companys head of news partnerships says they now have a point of view on quality news. That sounds far more like a publisher, with an editorial line (a point of view) than a neutral platform.

D&D that’s where I saw that hair cut.
What a resoundingly dumb article.
Inside the game itself or outside of it at the table?
Zuckerberg is like a Level 1 magician whose only spell is "I'll Get Back To You On That".
WHy ignore Clinton? And China? Why not more direct question—since courts rule bakers and photographers cannot discriminate, why should you be allowed to discriminate?
