Dear Member of Congress,
I'm faxing you today in support of Republican-led efforts to stop social-media censorship. Big Tech continues CENSORING content it doesn't like, agree with or that runs contrary to their social, cultural and political worldview. Most often -- and almost exclusively -- the news, information and media being banned is conservative and pro-Trump.
Less than three weeks before the presidential election, the Silicon Valley "elites" at Twitter and Facebook blocked a New York Post bombshell report about alleged wrongdoing by Hunter Biden, the son of Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden. Presumably, because the story reflected poorly on Big Tech's favored candidate, Facebook announced "(W)e are reducing its distribution on our platform."
Twitter suspended the account of the New York Post -- America's fourth-largest newspaper -- for posting the article. Also, Twitter users were blocked from sharing it or locked out for trying to re-tweet it. To his credit, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey later said his company's actions were "unacceptable." But by then, Big Tech had -- once again -- revealed their bias against conservatives, while possibly engaging in election interference.
I'm tired of Big Tech's unacceptable double standard of censoring conservatives and the content they post on social media. Twitter, Facebook and other Silicon Valley "elites" MUST BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE for possible ELECTION INTERFERENCE and for creating an uneven "playing field" that favors their preferred candidate, agenda or point of view. Please take bold, immediate action to protect the rights of every American AND the integrity of our elections.
That's why I urge you, a duly elected member of Congress, to hold the CEOs of Twitter, Facebook and other social-media websites to "level the playing field" for conservatives and the content they post. Thank you, in advance, for your patriotic support. Please note that I am closely monitoring your response to my urgent call to action.
