    The number of former employees of Obama, Clinton, DNC and Pelosi now directing policy and algorithms for Big Tech (Facebook, Twitter etc.) is astounding.

    Sens. Cruz, Hawley Demand Investigations of Big Tech


    https://www.newsbusters.org/blogs/te...tions-big-tech

    Senators Ted Cruz of Texas and Josh Hawley of Missouri put Big Tech companies on notice by pressing the Federal Trade Commission via a July 15 open letter to investigate them for hacking American democracy. "They control the ads we see, the news we read, and the information we digest," they wrote. "And they actively censor some content and amplify other content based on algorithms and intentional decisions that are completely nontransparent."

    The letter explained how Big Tech monopolies “threaten democracy.” It went into detail by elaborating that these unchecked corporate giants “greatly influence democratic outcomes, yet they have no accountability to voters.” It added “they are not even accountable to their own customers because nobody knows how these companies curate content.”

    Without Google meddling Trump would have won the popular vote in 2016.

    July Senate Hearing on Big Tech. The whole video is worthwhile but the segment beginning at 5:31 of Ted Cruz questioning Robert Epstein (liberal democrat academic scholar) is enlightening.

    On the one hand, social media has a specific legislative exemption from lawsuits over false content, on the other hand they want the freedom to censor content in any manner they choose. Perhaps they should be classified as a Political Action Committee; just a thought.

    This is an excellent presentation of the legal issues involved:
