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.

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.

Marsha Blackburn Report: This Week From Washington – May 5th, 2019

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – Attorney General William Barr testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday about Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report. The Attorney General told me he believed the Special Counsel’s investigation was exhaustive.
