Sen. Dianne Feinstein, the ancient and out-of-touch top Democrat on a Senate panel looking into the unauthorized release of millions of Facebook users’ personal data, told the social media giant and other platforms to “fix it” or risk having the federal government intervene.
According to the San Francisco Chronicle, Feinstein said, “I think they are going to have to do some controls. If you don’t control your platform, we’re going to have to do something about it.”
She doubled-down on her threat saying, “My message (to social media platforms) would be, ‘Fix it before it really breaks.”
What she really means is she’ll support even more government regulation of the Internet. In the end, it’s what everyone in Washington really wants.
