The White House is preparing to publish an executive order that addresses anti-conservative bias of many big tech companies.

According to Politico, who cited a White House official and two sources familiar with the executive order, there are few specific details on what the order will entail or what the potential penalties for political bias will be. The sources also say that the order has changed many times and has still not been finalized.

The White House official described the executive order as a way to inject some fairness into these social media platforms:

“If the internet is going to be presented as this egalitarian platform and most of Twitter is liberal cesspools of venom, then at least the president wants some fairness in the system. But look, we also think that social media plays a vital role. They have a vital role and an increasing responsibility to the culture that has helped make them so profitable and so prominent.”

The announcement comes after numerous reports have suggested that there’s a heavy bias against conservatives in many big tech companies. President Trump recently cited many of these reports when tweeting about Google manipulating political news stories.
