U.S. Senator Kevin Cramer (R-ND) issued the following statement on the Senate Commerce Committee holding a hearing today with the CEOs of Twitter, Facebook, and Google to examine Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act:
“Section 230 is being used for censorship. It needs to be reformed. Look no further than the answers from the Big Tech CEOs at today’s hearing for proof. Whether it’s their inconsistent rule enforcement or subjective standards, big tech companies are abusing an outdated law, and conservative voices are paying the price. Now it’s time for my colleagues and I to figure out some solutions to it.”
Senator Cramer recently called for Section 230 to be reformed following the New York Post being censored by Twitter for supposedly breaking rules the social media company inconsistently enforced and has since changed.
