The MSM is no fan of Trump and rarely do conservatives get a truly fair shake. They made this point even more clear when they decided to let Mark Zuckerberg slide when he lied to Congress.
“Not everyone faces the same penalties for lying, it turns out. Mark Zuckerberg came to Washington last spring to talk about Facebook, the soul-destroying social media company that has made him a multi-billionaire. While in town, Zuckerberg stopped by Congress, where — and you might want to have the kids leave the room for this — he lied! Yep. Don’t tell Don L’Mon. But Mark Zuckerberg is a liar.
“This is the most important principle at Facebook,” Zuckerberg told Congress. “Every piece of content that you share on Facebook, you own and you have complete control over who sees it and — and how you share it. And you can remove it at any time.”
Sen. John Kennedy, R-La., asked Zuckerberg, “Are you willing to give me more control over my data?”
“Senator, as somebody who uses Facebook, I believe that you should have complete control over your data,” Zuckerberg replied.
The only problem: It was a lie. Sorry, kids.
According to a piece in the New York Times, Facebook does not actually allow you and anyone else to control your data. Not at all. In fact, they secretly hand over your data – your personal data – to other big tech companies. That decision made has Mark Zuckerberg even richer.
Unfortunately, he’s had to lie in the process, including to Congress, and that’s a crime. As Robespierre once famously noted, you can’t make an omelet without breaking a few eggs. In this case, the eggs are your privacy.
Apparently, Facebook allowed Microsoft’s search engine to see the names of your Facebook friends without telling you about it. The company also allowed Netflix and Spotify to read your private messages without telling you. There’s no evidence so far that Facebook has a video camera hidden in your shower, but close enough. That’s what Mark Zuckerberg lied about. Not a small lie.”
So where is the MSM outcry? Turns out as long as you are liberal the MSM doesn’t seem to care if you lie to Congress or violate the privacy of your clients. Talk about a double standard.
