Sen. Blackburn calls for Facebook execs to testify after whistleblower’s revelations

Sen. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., says that Facebook is ‘chasing the dollar’ and failing to address impact of social media on teenagers

Sen. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., is leading the charge against Facebook in an upcoming committee hearing after the company allegedly knew about but did not disclose publicly data that showed the negative impact of Instagram on teenagers. She spoke with “The Faulkner Focus” to discuss a whistleblower’s findings.
