Why no MSM is Talking About the Facebook Stock Zuckerberg Sold Before The Cambridge Analytica Scandal?

By

After the The Cambridge Analytica Scandal, Facebook has lost 15% of it value in the selloff.

Zuckerberg sold his stock in Facebook – tens of billions of dollars worth of stock – that began before the Cambridge Analytica revelation.

This raises the question; what does Zuckerberg know and when did he know it?

CNBC reported that Mark Zuckerberg sold $357 million worth of Facebook shares, ramping up his regularly timed stock selling to fund his philanthropic efforts.

Zuckerberg said in September he would sell 35 million to 75 million shares during the following 18 months to help fund the philanthropic Chan Zuckerberg Initiative.

According to Zuckerberg’s latest statement of stock ownership, filed earlier this month, he still controls 87 percent of Facebook voting shares.

What do you think? Is that the main reason? is he hiding somethig from Americans?

Mark Zuckerberg has agreed to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee, according to a CNN report.

The committee is seeking more information concerning Facebook’s dealings with the data analysis firm Cambridge Analytica, which was suspended from the platform for inappropriate data collection earlier this month.

Zuckerberg apologized for Facebook’s handling of the issue in a CNN interview last week, calling it “a major breach of trust.

Zuckerberg has declined to appear before a UK parliamentary committee undertaking a similar investigation.

Facebook is facing mounting pressure over Cambridge Analytica’s behavior, spurred by public accusations from former research director Christopher Wylie. The new allegations center on a Facebook app called “thisisyourdigitallife,” which was used to harvest personal data from as many as 50 million users through the Facebook API in 2015. The resulting data was used to target ads for Cambridge Analytica clients, including Donald Trump’s presidential campaign.
