Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, Alphabet Inc. CEO Sundar Pichai, and Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey were grilled by the Boomers of Congress on Thursday.
Zuckerberg and Pichai both video’d in from what looked like very smart offices. Dorsey, on the other hand, was in his kitchen and had an aura of “I wish I was literally anywhere else.”
It isn’t the first time Zuckerberg, Pichai, and Dorsey have testified before Congress. But this hearing is focused on misinformation and extremism, particularly after the Jan. 6 Capitol riots. Much of the hearing focused on just that: how misinformation spreads on these platforms and how government regulation could step in.
