Sen. Mazie Hirono: ‘Claims of Anti-
Conservative Bias in the Tech Industry
Are Baseless’

Original Article

Posted By: Imright, 7/18/2019 11:12:38 AM

Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-Hawaii) used her opening statement at a Senate Judiciary subcommittee hearing Tuesday on Google and censorship through search engines to condemn the focus of the hearing, claiming that “claims of anti-conservative bias in the tech industry are baseless.”“The calendar says it’s July 16th, but it feels like Groundhog Day in the United States Senate. A little more than three months ago, this subcommittee held a hearing to explore allegations of anti-conservative bias in the tech industry. My friends on the other side were critical of witnesses from Facebook and Twitter. They claimed a vast conspiracy to silence conservative voices,” Hirono said.

Yet again, Mazie demonstrates her nasty nature as well as her stupidity, arrogance and ignorance. She is an embarrassment to the Senate, Hawaii and the US.

People like Hirono are not intelligent enough to do this on their own. They are mouthpieces of others.

Yeah. It's just a Conspiracy Theory thought up by those right-wing extremists. Besides, Media Matters investigated and debunked it. We can all now stop talking about it. I've got news for you, Mazie. It doesn't take a liberal mastermind sitting at the controls to censor conservative speech. Computers can be programmed to remove speech that is not pleasing to the programmer. Amazing that they could find no evidence of bias against conservatives after a year of exhaustive research. I can go on Google and find evidence of bias on their first page in about 5 seconds.

President Trump was asked if he was "in favor of banning plastic straws" by a reporter on Friday afternoon, just a short time after an Iranian provocation in the Strait of Hormuz. "Are you in favor of banning plastic straws?" a reporter asked the president outside the White House. "I do think we have bigger problems than plastic straws. You know, it’s interesting about plastic straws. So you have a little straw, but what about the plates, the wrappers, and everything else that are much bigger and they’re made of the same material?
