Listening to politicians grandstanding about something, is enough to make you want to laugh out loud.
Example: A recent New York Times article revealed Facebook gave at least 60 major device manufacturers unprecedented access to user data.
An outraged Congress critter, David Cicilline (DEM) (RI) tweeted, “Sure looks like Zuckerberg lied to Congress about whether users have “complete control” over who sees our data on Facebook,” adding “This needs to be investigated and the people responsible need to be held accountable.”
Translation: FB needs to be more generous with its campaign contributions and donations to the DNC directly.
This is old news.
And if they were concerned about him lying, why didn’t Congress put Zuckerberg under oath when they “questioned” him?
The likely outcome of this sanctimonious hypocrisy??? Zuckerberg will “donate” to his campaign and you’ll never hear a peep from this clown again.
Cicilline’s comment is Congressional extortion at its finest…a fundraising statement.
It reminds me of Bernie Sanders “BUY ME A LAKEHOUSE AND I’LL SHUT UP,” endorsement of Hillary…and the gift purchase of his lake house, four days later).
Facebook’s response: “These partners signed agreements that prevented people’s Facebook information from being used for any other purpose than to recreate Facebook-like experiences,” wrote Ime Archibong, Facebook’s vice president of product partnerships.
Ime Archibong? Seriously?
Anyway, this why you must be vigilant when evaluating the merits of your local politicians.
They are the ones who should be investigated.
Until “We the People” clean house of these creeps, (at the voting booth) they’ll continue their extortion charade along with their Wall Street partners in crime.
You can make a difference when you see the big picture…and “Connect the Dots.”
