Update II: Zuckerberg is probably regretting agreeing to those extra 15 minutes before the break right about now…

Ted Cruz is hammering Zuckerberg about whether his company is a neutral public form, citing a now famous 2015 Gizmodo story claiming Facebook employees actively suppressed conservative news.

And before that, just when it looked like all the tough questions were in the rear view mirror, Connecticut Sen. Dick Blumenthal hits Zuckerberg with a “gotcha” question based on a report about the terms of service provided to Facebook by the researcher who sold Facebook user data to Cambridge Analytica.

As we pointed out,  Dr. Aleksandr Kogan disclosed his plans to market the data in a contract issued along with an update to Kogan’s app. That term was in violation of Facebook’s terms of service, but the company somehow didn’t catch it.

Zuckerberg admitted to the mistake, but insisted it didn’t amount to a violation of FTC rules.

Would Facebook assent to an “opt-in” for collecting user data as opposed to an “opt out?” Zuck says it “certainly makes sense to discuss.” Source
