April 10, 2019: Senate Judiciary subcommittee hosts a hearing that amplifies debunked claims of censorship from anti-abortion movie makers. The hearing, titled “Stifling Free Speech: Technological Censorship and the Public Discourse,” allowed the GOP to give a platform to anti-abortion media figures, who criticized a ban-evasion feature that negatively impacted the Twitter account for an anti-abortion movie, saying it constituted censorship. During the hearing, Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-HI) explained that there was no hard data to support claims of censorship.
