(TheConservativeNews.org) – Big tech has a bad history regarding how they enact their censorship policies. Now, Republican attorneys general joined the Trump administration’s efforts to hold social media platforms accountable for flagrant acts inflicted on their users.

Republican Attorney General Ken Paxton of Texas led the charge with the Republican attorneys general of Indiana, Louisiana, and Missouri. They announced their support in a joint statement made public on August 4, writing that social media sites aren’t truly free unless they “provide alternatives when speech restrictions go too far.”

Continuing, they added that a multitude of evidence shows social media “downplaying, editing,” and “suppressing political speech.”

At stake is a recent petition filed with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) by the Trump administration, calling for increased accountability for big tech companies. That petition asked the FCC to limit liability protections for companies like Facebook and Twitter who face increased scrutiny for flagging posts from the president and other Conservatives.

It’s about time social media companies go off their high horses and begin protecting their users’ rights. In the meantime, it’s good to see Republican attorneys generals supporting the president’s call for increased scrutiny on social media’s unchecked power.
