Who do you believe to be the best arbiter of the truth? Congress? Apple? Amazon? Verizon?
If you chose “none of the above,” then you probably have a lot of company, but that’s not stopping Congress from getting involved.
Democratic U.S. Representatives Anna Eshoo and Jerry McNerney sent letters to a dozen cable, satellite, and streaming video companies urging them to address their “disseminating misinformation to millions” of users from some channels.
They wrote to companies including Alphabet, AT&T Inc, Verizon Communications Inc, Roku, Amazon.com Inc, Apple Inc, Comcast, Charter Communications and DISH. The letters suggested companies played “a major role in the spread of dangerous misinformation that enabled the insurrection of January 6th and hinders our public health response to the current pandemic.”
Interestingly, the representatives didn’t explain in detail how the truth would be discovered.
