Ted Cruz Launches Investigation into Censorship, Vows to ‘Shine a Light on Big Tech’s Efforts to Silence Conservatives’

Republican Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) has reached his limit with Big Tech censoring conservatives and officially launched an investigation into Silicon Valley’s actions.

Cruz said his probe will specifically be looking at “efforts to silence conservatives.”

“Today as Ranking Member of the Senate Commerce Committee I opened an investigation into Big Tech’s censorship,” the senator said in a statement.

“We are going to see accountability, transparency, and we’re going to shine a light on Big Tech’s efforts to silence conservatives.

“Elon Musk’s buying Twitter is a game changer because he’s done something that the Big Tech oligarchs never thought would happen, which is he’s gone open kimono.

“He’s 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.

“And now, we have the evidence, we have the emails, and it’s clear when Democrats said to move, Big Tech said, ‘How high?’

“They jump on command.”

Republicans in Congress also want to investigate DirecTV and parent company AT&T for canceling Newsmax and OANN, according to Newsmax CEO Chris Ruddy.

Ruddy said:

“This was never about the fees being excessive.

“DirecTV’s position has always been that Newsmax of all cable news channels should never get any cable fee whatsoever, not one penny.”

DirecTV continues to carry 22 left-leaning news channels, many with much lower ratings than Newsmax.

Those channels get license fees.

Citing the Commerce Committee’s jurisdiction over “half the U.S. economy, including all of telecom and all of Big Tech,” Cruz told Fox News that the recent Twitter Files (internal company records) offered a road map to go after Facebook, Google, YouTube TikTok, and all of Big Tech “that is trying to silence conservatives.
