FCC Chair slams Twitter for discriminating against viewpoints

0

The Left is attacking FCC Chair Ajit Pai for ending Obama’s net neutrality regulations. But the FCC Chair noted that existing big tech companies were already a bigger threat to an open internet than relaxing government regulations.

“When it comes to an open internet, Twitter is part of the problem,” Pai said. “The company has a viewpoint and uses that viewpoint to discriminate.”

He pointed to Twitter’s refusal to let U.S. Rep. Marsha Blackburn, a Tennessee Republican, advertise a campaign video with an anti-abortion message.

“To say the least, the company appears to have a double standard when it comes to suspending or de-verifying conservative users’ accounts as opposed to those of liberal users,” Pai said.
