Blackburn Statement on Murthy v. Missouri SCOTUS Ruling

June 26, 2024

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – U.S. Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) released the following statement on the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision that fails to hold the Biden administration accountable for pressuring social media companies to censor conservative users on their platforms:

“During the COVID-19 pandemic, the Biden administration participated in an online censorship scheme by pressuring social media companies to silence conservative voices on their platforms. It’s disappointing Big Tech platforms were not held accountable for censoring opinions the Biden administration deems unacceptable. We must continue fighting to make sure tech companies are not coerced into suppressing certain views simply because the Biden White House doesn’t agree with them,” said Senator Blackburn.
