This hearing isn't Mark Zuckerberg knocking it out of the park. It's revealing that many of our elected officials have an extremely limited understanding of one of the most important companies in the world. Yikes.

Sen. Feinstein is asking Zuckerberg, pointedly, about what it is doing to try and avoid another Russian election ads scenario. Zuckerberg said that one of his greatest regrets running Facebook is not identifying Russian “information operations” around the 2016 election fast enough.

When Feinstein asked when he first became aware of those efforts, Zuckerberg said it was “right around the time of the 2016 election itself.”-Recode
