Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is making the rounds defending his company from criticism.
This week, Zuckerberg is scheduled to testify before a House committee over the company’s new digital currency plan called Libra.
Described as “a universal currency and payments system that users can access from their smartphones,” lawmakers have concerns over the consequences of this new digital currency including the handling and misuse of consumer privacy, which is already a significant problem with Facebook.
Breaking from the norm for other high-level Facebook executives to handle the company’s dilemmas, Zuckerberg met with House Financial Services Committee Chairwoman Maxine Waters (D-CA) last week and delivered a speech at Georgetown University in Washington, D.C., on freedom of expression.
Addressing criticism of Facebook conservative censorship, Zuckerberg recently held private meetings and dinners with conservatives and even appeared on Fox News.

Zuckerberg’s outreach to conservatives didn’t include me.
I was left off the invite list because my experience with Facebook proves the company does censor conservatives.
I lost my job at BlazeTV because of Facebook censorship, an uncomfortable fact for Zuckerberg as he claims Facebook doesn’t restrict conservative speech.
After two years and nearly 200 episodes of busting up leftist lies, my last episode of BlazeTV’s “Here’s the Deal” was broadcast in July.
The Daily Caller wrote a story and provided data showing the dramatic drop in views from my videos because of an algorithm change.
Zuckerberg’s apology tour is based on trying to expand his business by making appeals to elected officials and conservative critics.
My experience with Facebook undermines Zuckerberg’s claim and that’s why he is ignoring me.
