IAP Statement On The Joint House Hearing “Disinformation Nation”

March 25, 2021

WASHINGTON—Mike Davis, Founder and President of the Internet Accountability Project (IAP), released the following statement regarding the joint House Subcommittee On Communications and Technology, the Subcommittee on Consumer Protection and Commerce and the Committee on Energy and Commerce  hearing on “Disinformation Nation.” 

“As today’s hearing demonstrated, time and again Google, Facebook, and Twitter fail to directly answer questions about their abuses of power no matter how many opportunities they are given. Big Tech monopolists continue to censor conservatives by controlling political speech with which they disagree. They continue to suffocate innovation by engaging in anticompetitive practices. And they continue to undermine a free, fair and open political debate by picking political sides. At the end of the day, Mark Zuckerberg, Jack Dorsey and Sundar Pichai failed to demonstrate why they shouldn’t be broken up and their Section 230 immunity shouldn’t be eliminated.”

IAP is a nonprofit conservative advocacy group that holds Big Tech accountable for engaging in egregious business practices like snooping, spying, political bias against conservatives, employee abuses and anticompetitive conduct. Davis previously served as Chief Counsel for Nominations to Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) on the United States Senate Committee on the Judiciary and led the Senate confirmation of Justice Brett Kavanaugh and a record number of circuit court judges.
