US lawmakers go after Facebook CEO Zuckerberg for anti-conservative bias

For years, conservatives have said Facebook operates with a deep anti-conservative bias and Republican lawmakers on Capitol Hill did not waste the opportunity this week to grill CEO Mark Zuckerberg on the subject during congressional hearings intended to focus on the company's sharing of user data.

One accusation of conservative censorship, in particular, came up repeatedly during the hearings.

Last week, Lynette Hardaway and Rochelle Richard, two African-American sisters who have gained 1.4 million followers for their outspoken support for President Trump as the social media personalities "Diamond and Silk," accused Facebook (in a Facebook post) of "bias, censorship and discrimination."
