Republican lawmakers are not giving up their crusade against Facebook, YouTube and Twitter over the alleged censorship of conservatives happening on these social media platforms.

Republicans aren’t letting them off the hook so easily — and they shouldn’t.

On Tuesday, representatives from these social media companies testified at a House Judiciary Committee hearing to explain how their companies filter content from their users.

The hearing comes a just a few days after Facebook’s algorithms flagged the U.S. Declaration of Independence as a hate speech and blocked it from the site.

Facebook apologized for the censorship and also fixed the problem, but clearly there’s something very wrong with the algorithm if it’s identifying our founding documents as ‘hateful’ or ‘offensive’ in the first place.

Some members of congress are floating around the idea of turning these social media companies into public utilities if they don’t clean up their act.

John Bambenek, a cybersecurity expert who serves as the Vice President of ThreatStop and as a part-time lecturer at the University of Illinois sat down with The Daily Caller to discuss the alleged censorship and what should be done about it.
