7:02 pm
conflicts in favor of its own profits. the result has been more division, more harm, more lies, more threats, and more combat. in some cases, this is this dangerous online talk has led to actual violence that harmed and even kills people. this is not simply a matter of certain social media. users being angry or unstable, are about one side being radicalized against the other. it is about facebook choosing to grow at all costs, becoming an almost trillion dollar company by buying its profits with our safety. the company intentionally hides vital information from the public, from the us government and from governments around the world. how again has leased thousands of internal facebook documents painting a picture of an organization that puts profits before people, fuels hate, and is harmful to children. her testimony comes a day after a world wide outage took dan facebook and its platforms for nearly 6 hours,
7:03 pm
sending his chest tumbling by nearly 5 per cent. that speak to shebra tansy, who joins us live from capitol hill, where the hearing is taking place. they're taking a break right now. i understand. she have a remind us of what we've heard so far from francis hogan. how damaging is her testimony? the reason why so damaging, because i think a lot of these sorts of ideas were quite familiar with perhaps, but i think what so damaging about how good is now we have the documentation to prove that those within facebook for mark zuckerberg downwards know about this, are actively engaged in getting uses angry as possible to make the most important thing for soccer berg at those below him is engagement. engagement means you're spending more time on the website. it doesn't mean yours passively scrolling on facebook, instagram, but your comments and your, your re post in your thumbs up and down and, and what gets a user engage anger. and it's pretty explicit in these documents that facebook is
7:04 pm
aware of, that this is no longer just about of some sort of mechanism for sharing your holiday photographs. this is also a facebook is concerned, is to get you angry and engaged. the longer you spend on facebook, the more likely you are them to click on adverse and in the end that swear facebook gets its money, is when you click on adverse. so the document show that it would seem up, zuckerberg has just misled congress and the past about this, but also investors. this is why actually there may be some real legal liability because francis hogan has actually filed several complaints with the security exchange commission, about misleading investors. that could be very, very serious, was like a back beyond that where you get to the question of what's to be done about this. and this is where, how guns testimony is up for debate and discussion because it's all very well say, well, something must be done. but what, especially when you're dealing with something that evolves free expression and who will that god for free expression. she says though, the key is, is,
7:05 pm
is transparency with the algorithms that facebook are actually using. i don't think many people of you about that. so we actually understand how facebook is, ta giving us what it, what it thinks we want to see and how it prioritizes it. and i think there is a certain amount of consensus that perhaps have given the user, but the very least more or will power of that algorithm may be a useful thing. but then i think we're helping them get some to some slightly more controversial territory is talking about watch dogs without police and monitor the algorithms and decide what is, what is acceptable. contented walks controversial content. and you can already see already about is that poses a lot of questions about, well, who's deciding what is what is controversial i'm. it's been well documented that if you, if you post a piece even today on facebook about the israeli occupation in the occupied territories, you're likely to get flagged because facebook works very closely with the israeli government. that is that what we ought to see? what, who's deciding who's deciding what's controversial? that's what gets a bit tricky. she also has other journalism. it's sort of interesting thoughts just towards the end of the recess. like, for example,
7:06 pm
ensuring someone but before someone can re post a document, mitchell that they've actually read the whole thing. they've scrolled through the whole thing and things like that, which was the shadow virtual wifi. she had what's been facebook response to these accusations. they said that this is all very selective and misleading. we've seen from their testimony before. they denied a lot of the stuff, but the difference is that we have with him black and white in internal documents and that's, that's the problem. now with facebook's with facebook response and has led to at least in a one so that the saying specifically to mark zach about your time is up, we're going to act. but then we get to the problem of how are they going to like, at least in the short term, where this was bug zuckerberg and where he would be a little bit word is there's a c c filings which will have legal consequences, potentially the charge of misleading congress. thank you for that. she advertising life for sale on capitol hill. in the world news, the pope has expressed deep sorrow after the release of a report into sexual abuse within the catholic church. in france. it found they
