Earlier this week, Mark Zuckerberg was stumped by a wave of grueling questions asked by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a democratic lawmaker and activist.
The interrogation was in regard to the Cambridge Analytica scandal and Facebook’s failure to monitor political advertising.
The Cambridge Analytica scandal deals with data mining, data brokerage and analysis during the 2013 elections.
While Alexandra was asking relevant questions backed up with truth bombs, Zuckerberg was put on the spot with almost no definite answers.
Alexandra also pointed out the lack of fact-checking done on Facebook’s part when it came to political advertising.
After a point, Alexandra chose to cut the diplomacy and BS and requested for straight forward answers.
With her witty questions, Alexandra managed to grill Zuckerberg while spreading awareness about the issue.
