Sen. Coons Praises Twitter’s Censorship, Says They Should Have Done It in 2016

‘I’m glad they are managing the content on their own websites’

TRANSCRIPT:

COONS: “Facebook and Twitter have policies to not spread things that are utterly unreliable, that have been debunked and where their origin is untrustworthy. They are practicing their own internal controls, as I wish they had over the past four years. If they had been more selective about what they posted in 2016 — don’t take my word for it, listen to the head of the FBI — an active Russian disinformation campaign in 2016 had an influence on that election, they are trying even harder in this election, I’m glad they are managing the content on their own websites.”
