At one point during CNBC's coverage they had Zukerberg in a double box with FACEBOOKS stock LIVE tick-by-tick as he was speaking. it was fascinating to watch as he was speaking, the price change live.
Rory, JamesWorldNews and bkman1990 gave kudos

At the end of a piece on BBC News, viewers were referred to the BBC's Facebook page (it's actually on the BBC News Facebook page, and not prominently featured) if they want to watch the live coverage. Not sure if they're oblivious to the irony or being brilliantly savage!

Bloomberg currently have a little box showing Facebook's live share price just above their Breaking News graphics. They also have a split screen with a Senator asking the questions & Zuckerberg responding in view.

Although I'm a bit surprised that the share price so far has gone down a lot further than anticipated. For now the share price of Facebook is only showing a very marginal drop. We might see some more impact after the separate committee hearing tomorrow? It is hard to see now to get a big picture because the Asian Markets could give us some indications later on when they open for trading in the next few hours to see how Facebook is doing in the aftermath. When I have watched CNBC Europe for years seeing the live interviews with the various business people coming up on screen in full flow. It is really fascinating to hear & see all of their live share prices on the screen when their interviews with the presenters was ongoing. It's great to see that happen for Facebook though just to see where he is going by answering the questions to the Senate Panel.

Did he get that booster so the TV camara could get a better angle?

Ha! maybe so, but he is a billionaire with a short stature that employs loads of people. Im sure they made sure he didnt look even more like a little child than he already does.

Maybe he has a bum complaint and you’re all being awful?

Also, some of these questions and the grandstanding are awful.

That’s what a lot of these hearings are. I imagine some in the UK are the same.

Here is CNN Domestic plans per Sr Media Correspondent Brian Stelter



I know Headline News has moved away somewhat from it's original concept but surely the entire point of it is to offer a decent round up of the days news whilst all the other news channels are focusing one live event, something many people probably weren't too interested in watching for the full day.


And when you think about it amazing how a couple of special reports on Channel 4 News dictated the schedules of all the US news channels yesterday.

What were they about because I didn’t see any. When the Cambridge Analytica stuff came out the Channel 4 News was credited and got a ton of air time a month back.

Nah they're much better here, they tend to prepare well and nobody is joking around or whatever.
