House panel subpoenas tech’s biggest CEOs over content moderation

The House Judiciary Chairman Jim Jordan has issued subpoenas to the CEOs of Alphabet, Amazon, Apple, Meta and Microsoft, requesting information on their content moderation methods. The panel has asked for communications between the tech companies and the federal government’s executive branch related to content censorship. The requests include details about people responsible for shaping moderation policies and those who’ve talked to the executive branch. Jordan, who has long maintained that major tech companies censor conservative views, wants to know “how and to what extent” the federal government allegedly pressured and coordinated with companies to censor content.
