Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg made his highly-anticipated appearance before Congress on Tuesday and apologized for his company's shortcomings and failure to protect users' information in the wake of the Cambridge Analytica scandal and Russian interference in the 2016 election.
"We didn't take a broad enough view of our responsibility, and that was a big mistake, and it was my mistake, and I'm sorry," Zuckerberg told lawmakers. But many of the senators weren't buying the 33-year-old billionaire's apology.
"We've seen the apology tours before," said Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Connecticut.
"After more than a decade of promises to do better, how is today's apology different?" said Sen. John Thune, R-South Dakota.
Next up, Zuckerberg will meet face his second public grilling before a House committee.
