Marsha Blackburn Report: Tackling Conservative Censorship

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – There is no denying the influence that Big Tech has over our lives. But increasingly, companies like Google and Twitter have become comfortable with abusing Section 230 protections. Silicon Valley has crossed the line with irresponsible content moderation and outright censorship of conservative voices.

Conservatives have suffered under liberal mob rule. You may remember that in 2016, producers of the Christian film “I’m Not Ashamed” had to fight the content moderators at YouTube to keep the film’s trailer running on the platform. They are not alone.

AAA says Visual, Mental Distractions Behind the Wheel Are Real, Potentially Dangerous

 

AAATampa, FL – Visual and mental attention is key to safe driving, yet many in-vehicle technologies can cause drivers to lose sight and focus of the road ahead.

Hands-free, voice-command features and other interactive technologies increasingly common in new vehicles may create visual and mental distractions that unintentionally provide motorists with a false sense of security about their safety behind the wheel. Just because a technology is available in your vehicle, does not mean it is safe to use while driving.

Marsha Blackburn Report: Protecting the Symbols of Our Nation

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – Statues and other symbols of our history serve as a reminder of how far we have come as a nation. As Americans, we have a responsibility to talk about our successes, our mistakes, and what we want our future to look like.

The First Amendment protects our right to peacefully protest, and to petition the government for change.

The violent acts committed by the professional agitators encouraging mob rule and anarchy, however, are crimes.

Marsha Blackburn Report: Silicon Valley’s Censorship Party is Over

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – The era of self-regulation in Silicon Valley is over. We will not allow Big Tech to get away with anticompetitive conduct or to bully competitors and consumers into silence. This week, Google threatened to choke off ad revenue to conservative news site The Federalist over their failure to police third party comments.

Meanwhile, Google does not adequately police comments on YouTube, one of its parent company’s own platforms. The U.S. Department of Justice unveiled a proposal to reduce the liability protections Big Tech hides behind when bullying competitors or suppressing free speech.
