Mark Zuckerberg and Jack Dorsey, the CEOs of Facebook and Twitter, respectively, couldn’t name one prominent person or entity with liberal beliefs that their companies have censored during a Senate hearing Wednesday.
Both Facebook and Twitter have faced accusations of anti-conservative bias and Utah Sen. Mike Lee (R) pressed Zuckerberg and Dorsey at Wednesday’s Senate hearing on big tech to identify just one “high-profile person or entity from a liberal ideology” censored by their companies.
“I can get you a list of some more of this but there are certainly many examples that your Democratic colleagues object to when… a fact-checker might label something as false if they disagree with it, or, um,” Zuckerberg said before Lee interrupted.
“I get that, I just want to be clear, I’m just asking you if you could name for me, one high-profile liberal person or company who you have censored,” Lee said. “I just want one name, one person or one entity.”
