SHOW TRANSCRIPT

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg apologized to European Union lawmakers Tuesday for how his company handled a variety of issues.

"We didn't take a broad enough view of our responsibility, and that was a mistake, and I'm sorry for it," Zuckerberg said.

During a meeting at the European Parliament, Zuckerberg said Facebook didn't do enough to fight fake news, foreign interference in elections or the misuse of people's information.

Last week, Zuckerberg agreed to appear before European Parliament members to face questions about Facebook's use of personal data. But he's still refusing to appear before the U.K. Parliament.
