Congressman Jim Jordon Explains the GOP's 3-Step Plan to Rein in Big Tech

Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Congressman Jordan, I was invited after the election to meet with one of the top members of not the political conservative class, but the RNC itself. And I said, fine, I'll meet with you. We had lunch very close to my studio here and I he asked me my advice as to what should happen now. Now that allegedly Biden won. And I said, if you guys want to be taken seriously by America, by at least 74 million Americans, if the Republicans want to be seen as serious, there's only two issues you must prioritize right now. One of them is election integrity. We've got to get serious on making it impossible or hard to steal elections even in cities like Philadelphia and Chicago. The second thing I said is big tech. You've got to be as serious as a heart attack on stopping the censorship of any American. Will you talk to us about what you're seeing from your colleagues? Does the GLP get it? Do we have a plan when it comes to big tech congressman? Yeah. Yeah. The first thing is, take away their liability protection. At a minimum, we've got to get rid of the section two 30. Take away this immunity, this liability protection that they've enjoyed. They're making editorial decisions. They're sensitive and conservative. I always always tell the story that this was a couple of summers back. I guess we'll come back in 2018. But Matt Gates gives me a call, and he says, Jim, Twitter is shadow banning us. And I'm like, I didn't know which out of any man. I said, well, that sounds terrible. Now, what is he explained to me? Turned out it was. They were in fact a shadow banning Gates represented Meadows representative Nunes and myself. So you got 435 members of Congress, got a hundred senators 535, only four. Only four were being shadow banned by Twitter. And it happened to be right in the middle of the whole Trump Russia investigation when we were pushing back on all the BS coming from the Justice Department. So this becomes a news and Twitter sends out a statement that says well, it was just a glitch in our algorithm. And I'm like, glitching your algorithm, what did you put in the algorithm the names Gates Meadows known as Jordan? Give me a break. So you're exactly right. So that's step one. Step two is we actually need to get that. There are some antitrust cases happening. We need to get those to the Supreme Court on an expedited fashion, so that we can get an answer. It sure seems like justice Thomas wants to look at this. Are these companies so big and so powerful that we need to break them up? Do we need to reform our antitrust? How do we have to do it? So we think that is that's the second avenue that we have to do. And then third, we need to look at, I think, regular Americans having a private right of action against these companies, the ability to sue when they censor you when they take down your content, when they throttle back your ability to reach people via social media. So I think those are the three things that we're trying to look at, but certainly to start its dissection two 30, that needs to happen
