Facebook, Twitter CEOs testify before Senate on election handling (LIVE) | USA Today

Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg and Twitter’s Jack Dorsey are set to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee, where they will face questions as divided as the nation, with Republican senators pelting the tech CEOs for alleged anti-conservative bias and Democrats for their platforms’ handling of hate speech and misinformation.

Tuesday’s congressional hearing – the second virtual appearance for the CEOs in less than three weeks – reflects growing bipartisan pressure on “Big Tech.”

It also comes at a particularly fraught moment as President Donald Trump continues to use social media to make unsubstantiated claims of voting fraud and to contest Joe Biden’s victory.

Dorsey and Zuckerberg appeared before the Senate Commerce Committee alongside Sundar Pichai, CEO of Google parent Alphabet, on Oct. 28, to defend their companies against blistering attacks over the moderation of conservatives’ posts.

Researchers have found no evidence that Facebook and Twitter are biased against conservative voices or viewpoints. But during that hearing, Republican lawmakers alleged the tech companies engaged in politically motivated suppression of New York Post articles on the business dealings of Biden’s son Hunter in the lead-up to the election and warned they may strip away decades-old legal protections that shield tech companies from liability for what users post on their platforms.
