Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg will testify before the Senate Judiciary and Commerce Committees today. Senators will get five minutes to question Zuckerberg today, which will give him plenty of time to try to run out the clock. Though the legacy media want the focus of the hearing to be about privacy, the bigger issue is whether Facebook is working to blunt the influence of right-of-center news outlets and personalities while propping up establishment outlets and those in good standing with them. Breitbart Tech reported this week that since Facebooks algorithm alteration, legacy media outlets like CNN have seen “remarkable” increases in engagement on the social-media platform while non-legacy outlets on the right have seen the biggest drops.
