Tuesday's HOT MIC
Sen. John Kennedy (R-La.) grilling Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is a thing of beauty.
The money quote: "Your user agreement sucks... The purpose of that user agreement is to cover Facebook's rear end. It's not to inform your users about their rights. Now, you know that and I know that."
Kennedy continued: "I'm going to suggest to you that you go back home and rewrite it. And tell your $1200-an-hour lawyers—no disrespect, they're good—but tell them that you want it written in English, in non-Swahili, so the average American can understand it. That would be a start.
To be honest, Kennedy was not on my radar until he started jabbing at Mark Zuckerberg in recent days, but he's quickly becoming a must-watch senator in my book.
