Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) tore into Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey in a blistering rebuke Wednesday morning, over censorship of conservative news.
The Senate Commerce Committee had summoned Dorsey, Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg and Google’s Sundar Pichai to testify for a hearing Wednesday. The big tech executives agreed to testify remotely after the Senate Committee had threatened to subpoena them.
Facebook and Twitter have both suppressed the reach of a story posted earlier this month by the New York Post, on the Hunter Biden “laptop scandal.” Thousands of emails, texts and other documents were found on a laptop Hunter had reportedly dropped off at a computer repair shop in Delaware. Democrat nominee Joe Biden, along with liberal media, have declared the story is a “Russian disinformation campaign.”
Cruz began his remarks by saying, “The three witnesses we have before this committee today, collectively pose, I believe, the single greatest threat to free speech in America, and the greats threat we have to free and fair elections.”
“Of the three players before us, I think Twitter’s conduct has by far, been the most egregious,” Cruz declared. “Mr. Dorsey, does Twitter have the authority to influence elections?”
“No,” Dorsey muttered. “People have a choice of their communications channels,” he said.
“If you don’t think you have the power to influence elections, why do you block anything?” Cruz demanded.
“We have policies that are focused on making sure that more voices on the platforms are possible,” Dorsey claimed, saying if people are “harassed” they might leave the platform.
When asked why he censored the stories by the New York Post, Dorsey claimed it was because it violated their policies on “hacked materials.” He said the New York Post has to delete their original tweet before they can get their Twitter account back.
Cruz also blasted Dorsey for not censoring the New York Times when they published reports on President Trump’s tax information.
“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 news to the contrary of your political beliefs?” Cruz demanded.
