Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg will appear before the Senate Judiciary Committee to defend their censorship against the New York Post as it relates to its reporting of the Hunter Biden laptop scandal.
In addition to the individual articles from the Post being censored by both platforms, the New York Post's official Twitter account remains suspended since the outlet broke the story on Oct. 14.
A Friday press release from the committee regarding "Censorship and Suppression of News Articles, Handling of 2020 Election" by the executives notes that they will testify on Nov. 17.
"The hearing will focus on the platforms’ censorship and suppression of New York Post articles and provide a valuable opportunity to review the companies’ handling of the 2020 election," the announcement noted.
A separate Oct 28 hearing will also feature testimony from the pair regarding Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act. The law in question currently protects Big Tech with regard to liability surrounding content moderation.
