RESTON, VA — On August 31, Media Research Center founder and president Brent Bozell sent individual letters to House Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Greg Walden (R-OR) and Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Richard Burr (R-NC) concerning Wednesday’s hearings on social media platforms featuring officials from Facebook, Google and Twitter. 

In both letters, Bozell emphasized that “[t]he American people deserve answers and transparency” from groups like Twitter as they’ve come under scrutiny for their censorship of conservatives.

He also told Burr and Walden that “[t]he Media Research Center is leading a coalition representing more than 40 conservative organizations concerned about the censorship of conservative voices on social media” and thus “represent[ing] tens of millions of conservative Americans” who “expect that social media companies will do the right thing.”
