Mark Zuckerberg testimony as it happened: Facebook CEO grilled by senators

Published

on

Four hours and 54 minutes after he began testifying, Zuckerberg is done. He was contrite, and he neither agreed to nor objected to most of the senators’ suggestions, pet bills and light condemnations. As many senators noted, regulation could actually be a good thing for Facebook — as could a lack of new regulation. But all in all, Zuckerberg emerged unscathed.

Zuckerberg’s notes during the hearing included talking points around how to defend Facebook, election integrity, and, of course, Cambridge Analytica.
