Zuckerberg Continues Tour of DC With Unproductive Meeting With Senator

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is continuing to meet policymakers in Washington, D.C. to discuss “future internet regulations” — most recently with Senator Josh Hawley.
“A frank conversation”
On the afternoon of Sept. 19, Sen. Hawley wrote on Twitter:
“Just finished meeting with CEO Mark Zuckerberg. Had a frank conversation. Challenged him to do two things to show FB is serious about bias, privacy competition.”
Hawley has asked Zuckerberg to consider selling WhatsApp and Instagram, and to submit to an independent, third-party audit on censorship.
According to Sen. Hawley, the executive had a clear and short answer to both requests: no.
Zuckerberg questioned by Democratic lawmakers
Earlier on Sept. 19, Cointelegraph reported that Zuckerberg had dinner with a handful of U.S. lawmakers, where he faced intense scrutiny over Libra.
Democratic Senator Mark R. Warner said Zuckerberg heard “consistent concerns about privacy, concerns around vile content and how it came to be dealt with.”
