decide for that management speak for and the poison daughter of a former russian spy has left the hospital in britain you'll get scruple has been taken to a secure secret location. it's good to have you with us facebook c.e.o. mark zuckerberg is testifying before u.s. senators in an eagerly awaited hearing senators are focusing on an admission by facebook at the data of up to eighty seven million users was improperly shared with a company that was seeking to put donald trump in the white house zuckerberg began by reading out a prepared statement in which he apologized and took personal responsibility for the huge data breach. so coburg has apologized to the public before but this is the first time that he has gone before congress but it's clear now that we didn't do
11:02 pm
enough to prevent these tools from being used for harm as well and that goes for fake news foreign interference in elections and hate speech as well as developers and data privacy we didn't take a broad enough view of our responsibility and that was a big mistake and it was my mistake and i'm sorry i started facebook i run it and i'm responsible for what happens here all right we want to go now to capitol hill in washington where our correspondent michelle kosinski is standing by good evening to you so is this the grilling that everyone expected it to be well yes and no yes in the sense that sort of got some pretty tough questions from the senators the ones that are asking whether and how the second book would be able to share and want to share his personal information with the public in this hearing
11:03 pm
sort of brooke the client to share a public information about his personal life. to the committee but he also got some senators who said repeatedly that they were willing basically to give him the benefit of the doubt and that they were ready to. see if facebook cleans up as act and basically remedies the situation and they were ready to wait with possible regulation to see if facebook actually cleans up its act so as it was but it kind of a mixed bag of so far this this really and you know we've got this big media culpa from zuckerberg has he offered anything more than a big apology. you know you're right this was basically and still is a big apology tour here in washington by the facebook c.e.o. but so far he has been pretty well pretty reluctant to share any concrete steps i mean he has said repeatedly and before you also before the hearing already
11:04 pm
that facebook what look at all that's all the apps on its platform and to check though as and to ban those that basically. harm user content personal content and it would inform users but yes yes it really devolves to anything new and any concrete measures to remedy the situation beyond the fact you already laid out before and when it comes to facebook facing more regulation you know there was interesting verbal exchange between zuckerberg and republican senator lindsey graham let's take a listen if i buy forward and it doesn't work well and i don't like it i can buy. it on the set with facebook was the equivalent product then i can go sign up for. well there's a second category there was going to talk about hers and some categories i'm talking about is there real competition you face coast guard companies face
11:05 pm
a lot of competition that they make a defective car it gets out in the world people stop buying their car they have another one is in an alternative to facebook in the private sector yes senator the average american uses eight different apps ok communicate with their friends and stand touch with people ok ranging from tech which he hopes to email to your service you provide what we do provide a number of different there's a clipper saying this which you do it overlaps with a port you don't think you have a monopoly. it certainly doesn't feel like that to me ok. well there you have zuckerberg trying to play down the power of his social media some people would say empire i mean is this how he is trying to avoid stricter rules and regulations from the federal government. i think this could be a part of his strategy there i mean he said repeatedly that facebook is an idealistic company that has the goal of connecting people locally and globally and
11:06 pm
that basically it's all it's all and idealistic place and not a big business or business company that intends to the heart of people or make billions in profit so basically yeah he's trying to play down the the import and the influence facebook has as a global leader and in the on the internet and tries to portray it as an idealistic company that tries to connect people and just do good. is something that was said in the last couple of minutes in these hearings zuckerberg said that facebook is working with the special counsel robert muller in his probe into russian interference of the u.s. presidential election back in twenty sixteen do we know more about this cooperation . not really this was really an interesting part of the of the testimony today by psycho burke he basically said only that that facebook employees
11:07 pm
had been interviewed by by miller's team but he said he couldn't divulge any more information as it was confidential and he also said he couldn't really recall if facebook or the employees were subpoenaed by miller's team but it but it is certainly interesting. that we know now that facebook is part of this investigation and that facebook employees have indeed been interviewed by miller's team. all right our correspondent michelle contigo from the u.s. senate here in washington michelle thank you very much. here are some of the other stories now that are making headlines around the world a u.s. president double truong has described the f.b.i. raid on the office of his personal lawyer as discourse for the f.b.i. searched the offices of attorney michael cohen saying it was acting on a referral by special counsel robert muller bawler is conducting that investigation
