FB Google Twitter CEO will attend the hearing in March: focus on false information

According to foreign media reports, the U.S. House of Representatives Energy and Commerce Committee plans to hold a hearing on misinformation on Internet platforms on March 25. Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg (Mark Zuckerberg), Google CEO Sundar Pichai (Sundar Pichai) and Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey (Jack Dorsey) have already stated that they will attend. 


Frank Pallone, chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, said in a statement: "This hearing will continue the work of the committee, which is to make online platforms responsible for the increasing amount of false and false information. It has been a long time in the past. Over time, large technology companies have never realized their role in inciting and promoting false information to online audiences."

He continued: "Whether it is a lie about the new crown pneumonia vaccine or the debunked allegations of election fraud, these online platforms allow the spread of misinformation, exacerbating the national crisis, and bringing serious real-life consequences to public health and safety. The industry’s self-discipline has failed, and we must begin to change the incentive mechanism to prohibit social media companies from allowing or even promoting false information."

Of these three, Zuckerberg has appeared in Congress several times in the past year, and the hearing in March will mark his fourth testimony in Congress since July last year. For Pichai and Dorsey, this will be their third hearing at this time.

In November 2020, Dorsey and Zuckerberg were summoned to Congress to participate in an interim hearing held by the Senate Judiciary Committee on the issue of review and misinformation labeling. However, the March hearing will be the first time these technology company executives have traveled to Congress to testify since the US Congress was attacked on January 6. All three companies have blocked the accounts of former President Donald Trump, a move that has caused great controversy among Republicans. (Little)
