Does absolute power corrupt absolutely? Without a doubt. And you don’t have to look any further than what big tech has done when it comes to conservative speech on the internet. Thankfully, conservatives aren’t taking this laying down, as Florida Republican Rep. Matt Gaetz’s scorching takedown of monolithic tech titan Google during a congressional hearing Wednesday proves. “I want to talk about search [functions on Google], because that’s an area where I know Google has real market dominance,” Gaetz said while questioning Google CEO Sundar Pichai. “You said, ‘We don’t manually intervene on any particular search result,’” Gaetz said in reference to a Dec. 11 hearing in front of the House Judiciary Committee.
