‘In Zuckerberg We Trust’—Seriously?

The Boston Globe’s Hiawatha Bray writes:

I’d been looking forward to watching Facebook chief executive Mark Zuckerberg take an oath to tell the truth to Congress. But the Senate committee that heard Zuckerberg’s testimony on Tuesday afternoon chose not to swear him in. Instead, they decided to trust the man, a strategy that hasn’t worked very well up to now, but there’s always a first time.

Why didn’t the Republican-controlled Senate put Zuckerberg under oath? Put another way: Why bother with Republicans if this is all they have to offer?

That said, a couple of Republicans managed to get in a few good licks.
