In view of the “stigma” and “falseness” of the procedures he described, the Democratic congressman will give up asking questions to the technology chief executive.
Instead, he will explain in detail the coordination of the Republican Party, which has intimidated the tech industry in the past six months, to elect President Donald Trump (because his executive order in May is aimed at cracking down on social media and tweets about the abolition of the technology responsibility shield ); Department of Justice (provided a legislative plan to narrow the scope of online liability protection and sue Google for violations of antitrust laws); Hill Republicans (used to promote the GOP-only bill for technical legal protection); Federal Communications Commission ( Trump killed the nomination of a Republican commissioner at the meeting. The commissioner questioned whether the government should regulate online speeches. FCC Chairman Ajit Pai is planning to formulate a government-specific regulations for the technology industry).
Schatz will also argue that these attacks are effective, causing technology companies to “regress”

These technology companies stated that they would not make calls based on the political orientation of the content, and independent analysts have found no signs of systemic bias on the platform.
