IAP Statement on Senate Commerce Committee Hearing on Reforming Section 230 Immunity for Big Tech

October 27, 2020

WASHINGTON, DC — Mike Davis, founder and president of the Internet Accountability Project (IAP), released a statement today ahead of tomorrow’s Senate Commerce Committee hearing on reforming Section 230 immunity for Big Tech:

“It is plainly obvious that Big Tech companies operate as publishers, censoring content they don’t like and demonstrating consistent bias against conservatives,” said Mike Davis, founder and president of IAP. “Recent censorship of The New York Post is only the most recent example of their overt efforts to help one party and hurt the other. IAP commends Senate Commerce Committee Chairman Roger Wicker for holding this important hearing. It is imperative that members of the Senate Commerce Committee fully examine Big Tech’s practices and detail the harm done to consumers. If Big Tech wants to continue censoring content, then they should no longer enjoy Section 230 immunity.”

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.
