Yesterday, Jack Dorsey of Twitter, Sundar Pichai of Google, and Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook testified before the Senate Commerce Committee in regard to conservative censorship, the censorship of information from the laptop of Hunter Biden, and how they relate to Section 230.
The moment that stood out the most was when Senator Ted Cruz grilled Jack Dorsey after Twitter had recently censored the publication from the New York Post about Hunter because it incriminated the Biden family.
Here's the best part of the exchange:
Senator Ted Cruz: "Federal statutes makes it a crime, a federal felony, to distribute someone’s tax returns against their knowledge. So that material was based on something that was distributed in violation of federal law and yet Twitter gleefully allowed people to circulate that but when the article was critical of Joe Biden, Twitter engaged in rampant censorship and silencing…"
Jack Dorsey: "And again we recognized an error in policy. We changed that within 24 hours…"
Senator Ted Cruz: "But you’re still blocking the New York Post. You haven’t changed it."
Jack Dorsey: "We have changed it. They can log in to their account, delete the original tweet."
Senator Ted Cruz: "…So Twitter takes the view you can censor the New York Post, you can censor Politico, you can censor The New York Times or any other media outlets. Mr. Dorsey, who the hell elected you and put you in charge of what the media is allowed to report and what the American people are allowed to hear and why do insist on behaving as a Democratic super-PAC silencing views contrary to your political beliefs?"
Senator Cruz is right to grill Jack the way that he did, but I can't help but think to myself every time that I see these mostly older men talking about technology with people who actually understand technology very well, that they really need some sort of expert on the matter to help them during these times of questioning, because for the most part, they really have no idea what they're talking about.
When I say this, I'm not really referring to Ted Cruz because I'm sure he's a little more knowledgable than many of the Senators when it comes to technology. But what I have in mind in saying this is when Sundar Pichia was testifying before Congress and he was asked if Google knows when he moves to the other side of the room. Watch...
