Statement on the Journalism Competition and Preservation Act 

June 16, 2023

WASHINGTON — Mike Davis, Founder and President of the Internet Accountability Project, issued the following statement after the Journalism Competition and Preservation Act (JCPA) passed out of the Senate Judiciary Committee.

“The Internet Accountability Project thanks Senators Grassley, Graham, Kennedy and Cruz, as well as senators on the other side of the aisle, for their leadership in voting to advance the Journalism Competition and Preservation Act (JCPA).

“The JCPA would allow local and small, independent conservative news outlets to negotiate with Google and Facebook to secure fair compensation for their journalism. IAP joins several of the most prominent conservative news outlets, including The Daily CallerThe Washington Times, and Newsmax in support of the JCPA. This vital piece of legislation empowers publishers to meet Big Tech at the bargaining table and negotiate payment for their valuable content.

“It is time for Republicans and the rest of Congress to follow the lead of Senators Grassley, Graham, Kennedy, and Cruz, and take on Big Tech’s grip over our communities and lives,” Davis said.
