Trump mulls executive action against tech companies

Thursday, 08. August 2019 05:33

The White House is reportedly considering executive action that would address allegations of anti-conservative bias among social media companies, Politico reported.

According to the report, the White House has circulated a draft proposal of the order but so far it is unclear how the action would target tech companies.

"If the internet is going to be presented as this egalitarian platform and most of Twitter is liberal cesspools of venom, then at least the president wants some fairness in the system," the White House official said. "But look, we also think that social media plays a vital role. They have a vital role and an increasing responsibility to the culture that has helped make them so profitable and so prominent."
