Facebook was roasted in a devastating report by British lawmakers on Monday.
After 18 months, 73 witnesses, 4,350 questions, and countless hours of evidence, British lawmakers have delivered an excoriating verdict on Facebook's year from hell.
Nowhere is this better evidenced than in Facebook's early handling of the enormous Cambridge Analytica data breach, a scandal that hobbled the company in March last year.Lawmakers were shocked at what Zuckerberg didn't know about the scandal — and said it pointed to structural issues at Facebook.
But the three anonymous executives' failure to flag the looming Cambridge Analytica scandal also raises questions about Facebook's reporting systems. This was also hinted at last week by the former security chief Alex Stamos, who told CNN it could be difficult for Facebook execs to admit fault.
