Feinstein issues stern warning to social sites
Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-California says she was “profoundly disappointed” by the lack of sufficient answers during Tuesday’s testimony provided by the social media representatives.
“We’re not going to go away gentlemen and this is a very big deal,” Feinstein warned.
She added, “You created these platforms and now they being misused and you have to be the ones to do something about it or we will.”
Asked why Google didn’t take immediate action regarding RT’s “preferred status” on their search engine in light of the intelligence community’s assessment in January 2017, Walker said that while the site take’s the issue very seriously, they aim to provide a “wide variety of perspectives” online and let Americans “know what they’re getting.”
He said that the site is looking to expand ways they educate users on the funding of RT, specifically as it relates to the Kremlin.
