How can 46 House committee members sit in judgment of Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg and the social media platform’s practices when they have received contributions from said social media giant?
Why didn’t the media pick this up?
Zuckerberg testifies before the House Committee this week and when he sits down, he will be looking at friendly faces and that just anger just about everybody.
Remember, a lot of people really think these Congress swamp runners are going to tear him apart when it looks like once again, this is another showing at Kabuki theater.

Members of the House and Senate committees will be questioning the CEO about privacy protection and the violations that have rocked the company as of late.
According to a report last week by USA Today, some of these lawmakers are also the “biggest recipients of campaign contributions from Facebook employees directly and the political action committee funded by employees.”
The congressional panel that received the most contributions from the company is the House Energy and Commerce Committee, whose lawmakers are set to question Zuckerberg on Wednesday.
Of the 55 members on this committee, all but nine of them have received contributions by Facebook for the past decade, with the average Democrat receiving nearly $6,750 and the average Republican receiving $6,800.
Does this piss you off? Will there ever be justice to take down the evil giants?

I'm sure this has ZERO to do with the fact that 85% of these cretins have been paid off by this weasel.
