MRC's Bozell: The President is Right to Fight Back Against Social Media Censorship

“President Trump is right," MRC President Brent Bozell said in a statement released Thursday. "Twitter, Facebook and other Big Tech firms are guilty of censoring conservatives and their protections under Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act should be reviewed."

“Twitter’s actions against the president’s tweets are just the latest in their long history of censoring conservatives. Both Twitter and Facebook have embraced so-called 'fact-checkers' to moderate content, and almost all of them are left-wing and use their authority to push a leftist agenda. To make matters worse, Facebook added an 'Oversight Board' that contains several members who have spoken out publicly against President Donald Trump and one who said he should be censored," Bozell continued. 

"This problem began as a primal scream from Silicon Valley leftists devastated over the result of the 2016 election. Now, many in Big Tech are doing everything in their power to discredit the president and derail his reelection. The right doesn’t want to wreck the internet; it wants to preserve it as the open forum it was intended to be. This vitally important principle is why MRC along with the nearly 70 conservative groups with the Free Speech Alliance have led the effort to expose censorship online and work to end it.” 

“We’ve been encouraging these companies to embrace the American ideal of free speech for years. They don’t. Instead, they limit speech from those they disagree with and inject their left-wing views into the rules that govern their platforms. They’ve left President Trump no choice but to take action.”
