U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) called on President Joe Biden to release information on the extent of his administration’s work with big tech companies to censor Americans’ free speech related to COVID-19 Coronavirus.

“What the Biden White House is doing—namely, ordering big tech companies to ban Americans that do not regurgitate government-approved messaging—is what authoritarian regimes do,” said Senator Blackburn. “The American people deserve to know the extent of the White House’s coordination with big tech.
