IAP Statement on Senate Judiciary Committee Vote to Subpoena Twitter, Facebook CEOs

October 22, 2020

WASHINGTON, DC — Mike Davis, founder and president of the Internet Accountability Project (IAP), released a statement today following the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee vote to subpoena the chief executives of Twitter and Facebook:

“For too long, Big Tech giants have been coddled by the government with no accountability for their actions,” said Mike Davis, founder and president of IAP. “As we saw last week with the censored story about Hunter Biden, they are now interfering in the upcoming election by filtering out news that hurts their preferred candidate. Their last-minute strike against The New York Post, the White House Press Secretary, and many other conservative accounts amounted to a Big Tech Pearl Harbor, and that deserves a response.”

Twitter and Facebook have come under scrutiny from lawmakers after censoring a recent New York Post story about emails found on Hunter Biden’s laptop, as well as other content-moderation practices that silence conservative viewpoints. Following the Judiciary Committee vote, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and Facebook chief Mark Zuckerberg face subpoenas to testify about their platform moderation practices at an upcoming hearing.

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.
