WASHINGTON, D.C. - U.S. Representative Greg Steube (R-Fla.) today attended the House Judiciary Subcommittee on Antitrust, Commercial, and Administrative Law hearing to examine Amazon, Apple, Facebook and Google.

“In the era of big technology, free speech is now more important than ever,”  Steube said.  “Unfortunately, many of these companies continue to violate the First Amendment by censoring conservative content for political purposes. While they are silencing conservative voices they are also allowing videos of violence and rioting to be posted without any consequences. These companies and their leadership need to be held accountable.”

CEOs present included Facebook’s CEO Mark Zuckerberg, Amazon’s CEO Jeff Bezos, Apple’s CEO’s Tim Cook, and Google’s CEO Sundar Pichai.

Among topics discussed were antitrust issues, censorship, and Chinese efforts to steal information from American companies.

Prior to the hearing, Steube also participated in an interview with Fox Business’ Stu Varney about his expectations for the hearing. The full interview can be found here or below.
