Republicans plot to investigate social media censorship

During the next congress.

House Republicans, who will take charge of committees in January, are preparing to investigate Big Tech’s censorship. According to the Washington Times, the targets of the investigations will be , Facebook, Amazon, , TikTok, , and Microsoft.

“The first step for us is getting all of the documents, getting to the bottom of this, exposing what happened,” a source familiar with the House Judiciary Committee’s strategy told the Washington Times.

The Judiciary Committee will focus on the tech companies’ censorship records, while the House Energy and Commerce Committee will seek records from the White House about communication with companies about censorship.

Republicans in the energy and commerce committee already attempted to get those records earlier this year through resolutions of inquiry. Two of the requests, which were focused on issues of platform censorship, were rejected by the committee, which was controlled by Democrats.

Rep. Buddy Carter (R-GA) requested records between the White House and the FCC involving Big Tech censorship and efforts to regulate mainstream media over concerns related to misinformation. Rep. Dan Bishop (R-NC) requested communication records between the White House and social media companies on censorship.
