During the hearings with Mark Zuckerberg, many members of congress sounded completely clueless about Facebook and how it works. One person who did not come off that way was Senator Orrin Hatch, yet CNN tried to make it look that way. They eventually got called out.
Red State reports:
Alisyn Camerota Goes For Gold As Uninformed Journalist
Alisyn Camerota hit it out of the park once again with exposing the level to which she is blatantly misinformed or, at worst, being deliberately misleading to her viewers.
Not to be deterred by her last screw up, in which she accused Sen. Marco Rubio (R – Fla.) of not following through on his promise to propose and support gun safety legislation for which she had to apologize, Camerota attempted to say Sen. Orrin Hatch (R – Utah) didn’t know how Facebook makes their money.
This is clearly not true to anyone who has seen the two-minute exchange leading up to the rhetorical question Hatch asked Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg during his hearing on Capitol Hill.
At least this time, Sen. Ron Johnson (R – Wisc.) was there to correct Camerota on her clear lying misinformation about what actually happened.
