Proof! Sen. Marsha Blackburn Reveals How Twitter Censors by Citing MRC
Jack Dorsey, CEO of Twitter, said, “We haven’t censored the US president.” Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) proved him wrong by referring to a study by the Media Research Center during yesterday’s Senate hearing that looked at big tech biases.
At the hearing for Jack Dorsey, CEO of Twitter, the senator said, “You censored Joe Biden zero times, Mr. Dorsey. You censored Donald Trump 65 times. “She then reminded him that he had told Senator Cory Gardner (R-CO) that Iranian Ayatollah Ali Khamenei’s tweets did not violate Twitter’s Terms of Service. “Who voted the Ayatollah?” asked Blackburn.
Dorsey replied softly, “I don’t know.”
“So, Mr. Dorsey, is Donald Trump a world leader?” Blackburn continued.
Dorsey said yes. The Senator added, “So it would be important that the world’s leaders have access to your platform, right?” After Dorsey agreed, she said, “Why are you denying the US President this platform through censorship?”
The Twitter CEO denied this with the words: “We have not censored the US president.”
Blackburn replied, “Oh yes, you did. How many posts by the Iranian terrorist Ayatollah have you censored? How many articles by Vladimir Putin have you censored? “
Dorsey replied, “We labeled tweets from world leaders. Our policy is not to remove the content, but simply to add more context. “
Blackburn said, “Okay, and the US President that you censored 65 times.”
Although Dorsey denied any censorship, the flagged tweets that were flagged are also excluded from interaction. Users are not allowed to comment on or like these labeled tweets.
The media research center found that Donald Trump and his campaign had been censored a total of 65 times by Twitter and Facebook.
