During Saturday’s broadcast of “Fox News Live” on Fox News Channel, Rep. Jake Auchincloss (D-MA) reacted to the Twitter file posts by saying that big tech and law enforcement agencies “shouldn’t not get their hands on the scales of the United States”. political discourse,” and it’s “a good thing” if we get transparency that helps prevent these groups from tipping the scales.
Co-host Aishah Hasnie asked, “So let’s start with Twitter and those Twitter files. We know the Republicans – at least the House Republicans – are going to come here next session and do a bunch of investigations and look into removing content and they’re going to say, look, we told you, is not it ? We were talking about deletion all along and it was happening. So where are Democrats, like you, going to stand on this? »
Auchincloss replied, “Big tech shouldn’t get its hands on the scales of American political discourse, nor should law enforcement. And if we bring sunshine into previously confidential conversations, it helps advance that shared value, that’s a good thing. If we’re going to spend two years with sleazy, irrelevant investigations into people’s laptops, then Republicans are going to have to explain to the American people how that helps cut costs.
