Cotton: Facebook Acts Like a ‘Wing of the Democratic Party’

October 27, 2021

Monday in a statement to Breitbart News, Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) argued that Facebook, run by billionaire Progressive activist Mark Zuckerberg (pictured), is playing favorites with political parties in the United States and should lose its Section 230 protections as a consequence.

“Facebook has been intentionally suppressing traffic to Breitbart,” Cotton wrote. “Not because of policy violations, but to protect liberal politicians. Any company that acts like a wing of the Democratic Party should not enjoy Section 230 protections.”

This statement came in the wake of the bombshell news in a story from the Wall Street Journal that Facebook introduced tools after the 2016 election that slashed traffic to conservative publishers — like Breitbart News.

The WSJ report shed new light on both Facebook’s censorship of conservatives, and the ceaseless agitation on the part of its left-wing employees for more punishment of Breitbart News and other conservative pages.
