More recently, Google’s censorship of the coronavirus conspiracy documentary ‘Plandemic’ and Congress’ resolution against the QAnon movement both brought mainstream attention to what would otherwise have been fringe ideas.
Regardless of the end results, Facebook’s and Twitter’s efforts to bury the Biden story landed both companies in trouble with the Republican Party. Their respective CEOs, Mark Zuckerberg and Jack Dorsey, have both been summoned by GOP lawmakers to Capitol Hill to testify before a Senate Judiciary Subcommittee. President Trump, meanwhile, has called on his party to remove Big Tech’s protection under Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, which allows social media sites to be treated as ‘platforms’ instead of ‘publishers’, and permits them to police what kind of content they allow on their sites.
So terrible that Facebook and Twitter took down the story of “Smoking Gun” emails related to Sleepy Joe Biden and his son, Hunter, in the @NYPost. It is only the beginning for them. There is nothing worse than a corrupt politician. REPEAL SECTION 230!!! https://t.co/g1RJFpIVUZ
