You’ve got to hand it to Texas Republican Senator Ted Cruz who really gave it to Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg.
Zuckerberg was heavily prepared to testify before Congress about the recent data breach and privacy scandal and his company’s censorship policy of conservative news outlets.
Notice the two people sitting behind him who are smirking the whole time. Could the woman in green be any more smug or arrogant? Notice how after Zuckerberg talks, the man behind him nods his head and smiles.
It really is like Zuckerberg is a robot.
Most important statement made at today's congressional hearings:
"There are a great many Americans who I think are deeply concerned that Facebook and other tech companies are engaged in a pervasive pattern of bias and political censorship." — Ted Cruzpic.twitter.com/Sjc15AN32e

According to CNN Money, Facebook’s stock gained 4.5 percent since the start of trading Tuesday morning and grew during Zuckerberg’s testimony.
Zuckerberg, who owns more than 401.4 million shares in Facebook, earned nearly $3 billion since his testimony. His stake in the company is now worth roughly $66 billion, according to CNN Money.
Zuckerberg’s total net worth makes him the seventh richest person in the world, according to real-time data tracked by Forbes.
