Lawmakers at the European Parliament got straight to the point in their grilling of Mark Zuckerberg this week.
They asked: Does Facebook need to be broken up? But the politicians, like most politicians, were more interested in impressing each other with their ability to ask questions than to extract real responses. They spent an hour lining up questions, leaving Zuck with only 30 minutes to answer. And as every good journo knows, if you ask a series of questions, your interviewee gets to cherry-pick. And that’s what he did. His answers weren’t particularly useful. Nothing you haven’t already heard.
