Politicians always couch power grabs in talk of safety or protecting children. If something looks too good to be true, that’s because it is. Both of those truisms apply to the case of Facebook ‘whistleblower’ Frances Haugen.
Haugen came seemingly out of nowhere to testify before the Senate on Tuesday, yet she revealed nothing besides well-rehearsed bromides about the Menlo Park behemoth putting “profits over people” and somehow endangering Our Democracy by refusing to police misinformation, or something. Stunning and brave!
