Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-HI)—who is ranked as one of the most partisan and far-left members of the U.S. Senate—claimed on Tuesday that social media bias against conservative users does not exist as she complained that publications like Fox News and The Daily Wire perform too well on the platform.
“Mr. Zuckerberg, for the second time in three weeks, you’ve been called before the Senate Committee so my Republican colleagues can beat you up over claims that your platforms are supposedly biased against conservatives. The fact of the matter is that these allegations are completely baseless.”
Hirono said that there was no evidence that social media platforms were biased against conservatives because Media Matters—a leftist organization that smears conservatives and advocates harming conservative news organizations with boycotts—says so.
“Everyone who has systematically looked at the content of social media from Media Matters to the CATO Institute to former Sen. John Kyl (R-AZ) has found absolutely no evidence of anti-conservative bias
