BAG FB +3 more BAG FB GOOGL TWTR GOOG

On Thursday, conservative organizations, led by Media Research Center (MRC) President Brent Bozell, urged U.S. Attorney General William Barr to launch an investigation into the censorship and politically-motivated practices of social media giants Facebook, Twitter, and Google/YouTube. Following up on comments made during your confirmation hearing, we would like to bring to your attention some important details about online censorship. As you may recall from that hearing, both Senators Blackburn and Hawley brought up the possibility of the Department of Justice investigating Facebook, Twitter, and Google/YouTube. Respecting these entities’ own constitutional rights, we believe there nevertheless is ample probable cause of antitrust violations and of conspiracy to violate the constitutional rights of conservatives, and possible collusion to violate laws governing America’s campaign finance system and elections. Since January of 2018, the Media Research Center has conducted a thorough analysis of claims made by conservatives that they are being censored on social media. We lead a coalition of more than 40 organizations that expose the censorship of conservative voices on social media.
