Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg says Cambridge Analytica got his personal data too

Facebook Inc. Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg returned to Capitol Hill on Wednesday where he faced a sometimes confrontational House Energy and Commerce Committee that challenged the tech executive’s positions on user privacy, political bias and regulation.

The rapid-fire inquiry contrasted with Zuckerberg’s more languid hearing Tuesday before the Senate Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee, and Judiciary Committee.

“Facebook failed its customers,” Rep. Raul Ruiz (D-Calif.) said about Facebook’s mishandling of user data in the Cambridge Analytica scandal. “We have a responsibility to figure out what went wrong here.”
