Senator Josh Hawley Statement on Facebook’s Conservative Bias Audit

Tuesday, August 20, 2019

Senator Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) released the following statement in response to Facebook’s conservative bias audit:

“Merely asking somebody to listen to conservatives’ concerns isn’t an ‘audit,’ it’s a smokescreen disguised as a solution. Facebook should conduct an actual audit by giving a trusted third party access to its algorithm, its key documents, and its content moderation protocols. Then Facebook should release the results to the public.”
