Senator Hirono Uses MSM To Defend Biased Social Media Giants
This is so preposterous, it's almost comical. Far Left Senator Hirono is using the MSM to back up her claims that there is no bias or censoring of conservatives on social media platforms. In fact, she claims social media sites are being bullied and claims her Liberal sources say that any allegations that say conservatives are being discriminated against are baseless. I guess she hadn't heard about the New York Post trying to tweet about the Hunter Biden scandal last month.
Hirono made the following claims during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing that talked about conservative discrimination on social media platforms.
“Mr. Zuckerberg, for the second time in three weeks, you’ve been called before the Senate Committee so my Republican colleagues can beat you up over claims that your platforms are supposedly biased against conservatives. The fact of the matter is that these allegations are completely baseless," Sen. Hirono started.
“Everyone who has systematically looked at the content of social media from Media Matters to the CATO Institute to former Sen. John Kyl (R-AZ) has found absolutely no evidence of anti-conservative bias and data from Crowd Tangle show that far-right content from the likes of Fox News, Ben Shapiro, and Dan Bongino dominates the daily top-10 most engaged pages on Facebook.”
“So all of these allegations about the fact that you hire, or all of your employees are left-of-center, is relevant of nothing, certainly not relevant on some sort of anti-conservative bias in terms of your content moderation,” Hirono claimed. “So, the way I see it, this hearing is a transparent effort by my Republican colleagues to work the refs and unfortunately, in my view, it’s working.”

Hirono is drinking deeply from that liberal Koolaide. She is trying to defend liberal social media platforms with liberal sources that appreciate the censoring. Facebook removed over 700 conservative pages back in 2018 and Twitter is constantly shadowbanning/ censoring conservatives. This isn't even speculation, this happens all the time. Maybe this committee will make these social media giants think twice before they unjustly censor another conservative.
