House Committee Schedules Date for Zuckerberg to Testify

Facebook chief executive Mark Zuckerberg will testify before a key House committee next week, the panel said Wednesday, the first of three potential hearings in which Zuckerberg could face questions about Facebook’s data privacy practices. The hearing — set before the House Energy and Commerce Committee on the morning of April 11 — could result in an uncomfortable grilling from Democrats and Republicans who believe the social giant is responsible for everything from fake news to online extremism.
