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.

Update on Reopening America

 

The White HouseWashington, D.C. – Americans are ready to get back to work. Fewer than 6 percent of Americans tested each week are found to have the COVID-19 Coronavirus. Daily average case rates continue to fall, and all 50 states have begun reopening in a safe and responsible manner.
 
Small businesses are leading this comeback. During the height of the pandemic, more than 80 percent of them were forced to close temporarily as Americans helped slow the spread of COVID-19 Coronavirus.

Lamar Alexander: Remembering the legendary University of Tennessee player and coach, Johnny Majors

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – It’s important to remind ourselves of the difficulty we have as a country in dealing with racial discrimination. We’ve made so much progress over the years, but obviously we have a long way to go.

I think of my friend, South Carolina U.S. Senator Tim Scott, who is African American and who told me that he was stopped by police several times even when he was on the Charleston County Council for “being a black man in the wrong place.” We must redouble our efforts to change such attitudes and end racial discrimination.
