Conservative Leaders to McConnell: FTC Nominees Must Oppose Big Tech

March 7, 2023

Today, a coalition of conservative leaders sent a letter to Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) urging him to nominate Big Tech opponents to fill the two Republican vacancies on the Federal Trade Commission. Led by American Principles Project (APP), the letter was also signed by representatives of Heritage Action for America and the Bull Moose Project.

The signers cited Big Tech’s actions to censor conservative views and meddle in elections on behalf of Democrats as reasons to use the FTC nominations to fight back:

No reasonable person can deny that Big Tech companies have put their thumbs on the scale to prop up the Democratic Party. But the sad truth is that despite Big Tech’s lawless suppression of conservatives, previous FTC actions have enabled tech oligarchs’ monopolistic practices.

Even as they’ve faced outcry for deplatforming conservatives and corrupting the electoral process, Big Tech companies have evaded true accountability. With both Republican seats on the commission open, there is a historic opportunity to nominate qualified conservatives willing to take Big Tech monopolists to task for their offenses.

You can read the full letter here. Axios reported on the letter’s release this morning.
