IAP’s Mike Davis: “Big Tech CEOs Gave Ridiculous Answers and Could Not Explain Consistent Political Censorship”

October 28, 2020

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

“The CEOs of Twitter, Facebook, and Google could not explain their selective enforcement of their terms of service at this hearing. Twitter and Facebook could not cite a single example of a liberal individual or organization they have censored. Twitter said that in order to unlock their account, The New York Post must first delete a tweet they no longer believe violated their terms of service. Twitter even denied that they influence elections, which should be news to their many political advertisers. It is now blindingly clear that Section 230 must be significantly reformed to prevent future censorship of conservative content. Congress must immediately examine Big Tech’s business practices and provide an exhaustive report on the harm done to small businesses, consumers, conservatives, and the competitive market. Today’s conclusion is this: If Big Tech wants to continue censoring conservatives, 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.
