Senate Dem blasts Facebook for looking to 'win PR'

United States Senator Richard Blumenthal (pictured) condemned Facebook Inc. for putting a priority on managing the company's public appearance instead of protecting children on its platform.

“Their aim should be protecting kids, not winning PR," said Blumenthal. "Unspecific, superficial generalities are no substitute for real action."

His comments come after vice president of global affairs at Facebook defended the company from a testimony by whistleblower Frances Haugen who accused the tech giant of not prioritizing user wellbeing and urged Congress to take action on the issue.
