The Free Speech Alliance (FSA), a coalition of over 60 conservative organizations and conservative leaders committed to protecting free speech online, has sent an open letter to AG William Barr expressing concerns on conservative voices being silenced by big tech companies.
In an open letter released Wednesday, The Media Research Center and the FSA supported Barr’s concerns about big tech and the social media suppression of conservative voices.
“Last week you pointed out that ‘No longer are technology companies the underdog upstarts.’ ‘They have become titans of U.S. industry.’ With such power you said, ‘valid questions have been raised as to whether Section 230′s broad immunity is still needed.’
The letter goes on to cite incidents with Google, Twitter and Facebook where conservative messages and platforms have been blacklisted, limited or suppressed in other ways.

February 26, 2020
Attorney General William Barr
U.S. Department of Justice
950 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW
Washington, DC 20530-0001
Dear Attorney General Barr,
Last week you pointed out that “No longer are technology companies the underdog upstarts.’ ‘They have become titans of U.S. industry.’” With such power you said, “valid questions have been raised as to whether Section 230′s broad immunity is still needed.”
As conservatives, we do not argue for onerous regulations or burdensome federal legislation. However, as the Media Research Center and the Free Speech Alliance (FSA) have shown, the concerns you raised are quite justified. Consider:
