Indiana Attorney General to Investigate Anti-Conservative Bias in Big Tech
Indiana Attorney General Todd Rokita announced an investigation into conservative censorship on Amazon, Apple, Facebook, Google, and Twitter.
Rokita said tech platforms are preventing users from posting or seeing “material reflecting a politically conservative point of view.”
“In a free society, few assets are more important to consumers than access to information and the opportunity to express political viewpoints in meaningful forums,” he said.
Indiana isn’t the only state looking to curb the tyrannical influence of big tech. Republican leaders in about two dozen states have introduced bills allowing individuals to sue tech platforms for the removal of political and religious posts.
While federal policies currently ban suing companies for the removal of posts, these state proposals could be one way to stand up to big tech censors.
