Zuckerberg loses $7 bn after Big Tech blackout; FB whistleblower testifies

Seven hours without Facebook, Whatsapp and Instagram-and a seven-billon dollar personal hit for CEO Mark Zuckerberg. Facebook’s services are now back online after a global outage, amidst the tech giant coming under the microscope during a hearing before the Senate Committee on Commerce. Whistleblower Frances Haugen says the company favors profits over people, and is responsible for damaging the mental and social wellbeing of children who use Facebook and Instagram. To expand on all of this, investigative journalist and cohost of Boom Bust Ben Swann and author, historian and filmmaker Sean Stone join a panel to discuss Taiwan-China relations are beginning to sour, with the West fanning the flames. Between the US conducting war games with Taiwan and now the UK sending warships to the South China Sea, Beijing responded with 56 warplanes buzzing over Taiwan’s air defense zone on Monday. The Taiwanese saying they’re very concerned that China is going to launch a full-scale war. Former UK MP George Galloway shares his perspective.
