IAP: Facebook, Twitter Testimony to the Senate ‘Totally Inadequate’Urges an End Antitrust Amnesty and Reform of Section 230 Immunity

November 17, 2020

WASHINGTON, DC — Mike Davis, founder and president of the Internet Accountability Project(IAP), released a statement today at the conclusion of the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on censorship, suppression and the 2020 election:

“The CEOs of Twitter and Facebook provided no answers today. Their content moderation policies are intentionally opaque and selectively applied against conservatives. The two companies were forced to admit under oath that they collude with Google on content moderation related to hashtags, shadow banning and other aggressive censorship tactics. They cannot explain how their censorship does not make their platforms function as publishers. While making billions of dollars benefitting from Section 230 immunity, these platforms censor speech, punish conservatives, and promote liberal candidates. A bipartisan consensus is forming to end the antitrust amnesty and reform Section 230 immunity for the benefit of consumers, small businesses and everyone who values free speech in America.”

IAP is a nonprofit conservative advocacy group that holds Big Tech accountable for their profiting from human-sex trafficking, revenge-porn, the opioid epidemic and drug addiction, terrorism, and other forms of human misery, along with engaging in egregious business practices like snooping, spying, political bias against conservatives, employee abuses, and anticompetitive conduct.
