What is Mark Zuckerberg?

In the wake of his congressional hearing this question has deservedly returned to the public discourse.

I saw a video of some of the more incompetent questions he was asked, it was pretty funny.

To be fair, sometimes they just ask questions to get stuff on the record.

Watch the first 40 seconds of this video and tell me she understands technology at all:

There's a reason that video went viral on social media.  I couldn't believe how easy it was for people to be stupid enough to fall for some simple editing gimmicks to make people side with Zuckerberg in that hearing, but I'm pretty sure I've seen the video you're talking about and those questions were not incompetent at all.  His answers were much more idiotic and nonsensical than the questions.

People fall for it because, when it fits their narrative or side of the aisle, they tend to abandon reason and rational thought.  That's why so many of these fake news headlines that are debunked get mass-tweeted as fact.  I'll give an example...

This showed up on my Twitter timeline more than once - and it was obviously tweeted by hard core Republicans who didn't bother to check the validity of it - they saw it and went with it...because it fit their side of the aisle.  Same shit happens with hard core Democrats.  People just lose all sense when they are so emotionally invested...

A neocolonisalist?

I find it funny how Kale, the supposed progressive on this board, never even replied to this. The choice between big corporations and some random natives seems pretty clear to him.

And as for the thread's title: he's now someone whose company lost $119 billion in a day.

Honestly don't remember seeing the article, but it doesn't really offer anything definitive in terms of what's actually happening.

"Neocolonialism" might be the dumbest buzzword since "toxic."
