Big Tech is crushing small businesses because they refuse to play fair
In a field hearing in January, small businesses pleaded with Congress to help them in the face of Big Tech companies who used their power to diminish competitors, or outright steal their intellectual property. Smaller businesses cannot spend years and millions of dollars litigating against these behemoths in court.
Big Tech can also use its power to silence companies it disagrees with — as in the recent case of Google attempting to de-platform The Federalist, and past actions to shadow-ban conservative Members of Congress on Twitter.
Big Tech is a threat to free and fair elections
Dr. Robert Epstein has testified before Congress that Google, simply by presenting content that is biased in favor of Democrats,” swung as many as 2.6 million votes to Hillary Clinton in 2016. He estimates that Google’s algorithmic filtering has been “determining outcomes of upwards of 25 percent of national elections worldwide since at least 2015.”
Facebook’s COO brags that the platform has the power to swing elections
Twitter has repeatedly fact checked the president for “glorifying violence” while leaving up actual threats of violence by other world leaders
