Sen. Cruz Launches Senate Oversight Investigation Into Big Tech Censorship

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) has launched a sweeping investigation into Big Tech companies and their censorship of conservative speech on their platforms.

While speaking to reporters, Cruz described the level of suppression of speech that occurs on the largest social media platforms as “breathtaking.” Cruz added that his goal was to end censorship and collusion between Big Tech companies and partisan government employees.

Cruz, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee and a Ranking Member of the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation told Fox News Sean Hannity that he will use The Twitter Files as a map to go after the companies.

“Elon Musk’s buying Twitter is a game-changer because he’s done something that the Big Tech oligarchs never thought would happen,” Cruz told Hannity. “He’s (Musk) exposed the corruption. He’s exposed the censorship. He’s exposed the collusion with Democrats in Congress, the collusion with the Biden White House, the collusion with the deep state at the FBI, the CIA, and the DOJ.”


Cruz, on his Twitter page, said the investigation would show accountability and transparency and shine a light on Big Tech’s efforts to silence conservatives.

Cruz wrote a letter to Big Tech companies, including Meta, Google, Twitter, and TikTok, asking them to explain the scope of their recommendation algorithms and how they affect content distribution.

Cruz argued that the recommendation system, widely regarded as a tool for suppressing conservative voices, undeniably affects what Americans see on social media.

“This letter also serves as a formal request to preserve any and all documents and information, inclusive of emails, text messages, internal message system messages, calls, logs of meetings, and internal memoranda, related to the development, deployment, scope, and impact of any current, former, or planned recommendation systems on your platforms,” Cruz wrote to the Big Tech companies.

Founder and President of Media Research Center Brent Bozell showed his support for Cruz’s investigation while noting that Congress needs to investigate Big Tech companies and hold them accountable for suppressing conservative speech on social media.
