Get a load of this! Lesley Stahl and 60 Minutes actually put Mark Zuckerberg in the hot seat and hit the Beacon problem straight on.
Link to a clip from the show below (with an annoying, interminable pre-roll ad). But first, some choice quotes:
A stiff and uncomfortable Zuckerberg, after listening to Stahl describe how badly Facebook blew the Beacon launch and the ensuing PR disaster:
“It might take some work for us to get this exactly right, but we think this is going to be a really good thing.”
“Not a real answer to the privacy question. More like the canned response of a typical business executive.”
So much for a puff-piece on the latest wacky sandal-wearing billionaire!
