epublican senator Ted Cruz tore into Jack Dorsey Wednesday during a hearing on Big Tech’s handling of politics on their platforms as he bashed the Twitter CEO for censoring tweets linking to the New York Post story revealing the contents of Hunter Biden’s damaging hard drive.
‘Mr. Dorsey, who the hell elected you and put you in charge of what the media are allowed to report and what the American people are allowed to hear? And why do you persist in behaving as a Democratic Super PAC silencing views to the contrary of your political beliefs?’ Cruz shouted as he joined in remotely for a hearing on Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act. The law allows tech platforms not to be sued for what their users post.
The hearing was called by Republican senators in the wake of Twitter stopping tweets linking to the story about Hunter Biden, and Facebook limiting its users’ ability to post it. It was titled: ‘Does Section 230’s Sweeping Immunity Enable Big Tech Bad Behavior?’
TED CRUZ TO JACK DORSEY: ‘YOUR ANSWERS ARE ABSURD’
It’s amazing. Twitter refuses to allow the any mention of the Biden corruption story which was carried so well on
Live tweeting: Donald Trump offered live commentary on the hearing as it unfolded and lashed out at Twitter claiming it was censoring a Fox News interview with a former business partner of Hunter Biden, Tony Bobulisnki, who alleged that Joe Biden was aware of ‘corruption’
WE THROTTLED HUNTER’S EMAILS BECAUSE FBI WARNED ABOUT RUSSIAN DISINFORMATION SAYS ZUCKERBERG
‘One of the threats that the FBI has alerted our companies … to was the possibility of a hack and leak operation in the days or weeks leading up to this election,’ Zuckerberg said.
‘So you had both public testimony from from the FBI, (inaudible) in private meetings alerts that were given to at least our company, I assume the others as well, that suggested that we be on high alert and sensitivity that if a trove of documents appeared that that we should view that with suspicion that it might be part of a foreign manipulation attempt,’ he continued.
‘Do you believe that the Holocaust really happened?’ Gardner asked Dorsey, to which he responded, ‘Yes.’
‘So you would agree that someone who says the Holocaust may not have happened is spreading disinformation? Yes or no,’ the Colorado Republican pushed.
‘Uh – yes,’ Dorsey said.
‘I appreciate your answers on this, but they surprise me,’ Gardner said. ‘After all, Iran’s Ayatollah has done exactly this – questioning the Holocaust. And yet, his tweets remain unflagged on Twitter’s platform.’
Dorsey also drew fire for allowing the Ayatollah’s threatening statements about Israel to remain up on the site, while facing fire from Republicans for flagging some of Trump’s comments.
‘We did not find those to violate our terms of service because we considered them saber-rattling, which is part of the speech of world leaders in concert with other countries,’ he explained.
‘You routinely restrict the president of the United State. How does a claim by Chinese communists that the U.S. military is to blame for COVID stay up for two months without a fact check and the president’s tweet about the security of mail-in ballots get labeled instantly?’ he asked.
‘The goal of our labeling is to provide more context, to connect the dots so people can have more information so they can make decisions for themselves,’ he said.
