Guest: Randy Dryer, JD, Presidential Honors Professor of Law, S.J. Quinney College of Law, University of Utah CEO Mark Zuckerberg has spent the last 24 hours taking pointed questions on Capitol Hill. He’s admitted the company made mistakes: It didn’t do enough to prevent Russia from peddling disinformation and sowing discord on Facebook during the 2016 election. It didn’t do enough to keep companies like Cambridge Analytica from misusing data of more than 80-million Facebook users. It hasn’t done enough to prevent hate speech on the site. Zuckerberg’s public grilling came from both Republicans and Democrats. The message was clear: If you don’t get your act together, we’re going to pass laws that make sure you do. And we may just pass those laws, anyway.
