Sen. Hirono — I Repeat, Claims Of Anti-Conservative Bias In Tech Industry Is “Baseless”

Can you believe this?

On Tuesday, during a Senate hearing, Hawaii’s Sen. Mazie Hirono used Media Matters as a source to proclaim those tech giants Facebook, Google, and Twitter were not politically biased.


Hirono: I repeat now what I said then. Claims of anti-conservative bias in the tech industry are baseless. Study after study has debunked suggestions of political bias on the part of Facebook, Google, and Twitter…

In April, Media Matters completed a 37-week study into alleged conservative censorship on Facebook. It found that right-leaning pages actually outperformed — outperformed — left-leaning pages in terms of overall interactions with users.

“Study after study”? Wow! That’s even better than “everybody knows.” And Media Matters would be just the lefty organization I would trust to prove lack of bias.
