SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - Apparently Gov. Jerry Brown forgot to rent "The Social Network."
In an appearance Friday morning on "CBS This Morning," the California governor said his state is still the land of innovation and even where Facebook was invented.
He added: "Not in Texas, not in Arizona, not in Manhattan and certainly not, you know, under the White House or the Congress."
Actually, interviewer Charlie Rose pointed out, CEO Mark Zuckerberg and others developed the iconic social network at Harvard University in Cambridge, Mass.
Brown responded that the Facebook inventors quickly came to California "where all the other innovative people are."
The Menlo Park, Calif.-based company began selling stock Friday.
Brown and other officials hope it could bring in as much as $2.1 billion in tax revenue for California.
