House Commerce GOP Prepare Latest Smackdown of Big Tech

Coverage Type: 

The House Commerce Committee’s Republican leadership has scheduled the latest Big Tech beating on Capitol Hill and they have signaled it will be filled with Republican red-meat issues. The official beating will commence on March 28 at 10:30 a.m., but it has already begun. Unlike a recent Senate Judiciary Committee subcommittee hearing that had bipartisan backing, the House hearing notice is filled with partisan shots. In a joint statement, House Commerce Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) and Communications Subcommittee Chair Bob Latta (R-OH) said that the Biden administration was colluding with Big Tech and “corrupt government officials” to "...silence voices who dare to question the Left's narrative.” There is no witness list for the hearing, but Chairs McMorris and Latta teased the lineup, saying it would include "several people who’ve been silenced by Big Tech."
