House Republicans demand Biden hands over Facebook, Twitter censorship communications

Sep 15, 2022 | Political News

Three members of the US Congress have penned a letter to President Joe Biden asking him to clarify what his administration is doing when it communicates and meets with representatives of Facebook and Twitter to “coordinate” their “fight against misinformation.”

The letter, sent by Cathy McMorris Rodgers, Robert Latta, and Gus Bilirakis, states that its signatories are concerned with what they say is the White House’s attempt to put pressure on Big Tech’s social media to censor or silent opponents.

For the sake of shedding light on the highly controversial practice, the three Republicans want Biden to turn over records concerning those meetings and communications. They also make a point of the fact Twitter and Facebook are private companies.
