(Daily Caller) Republican Texas Sen. Ted Cruz criticized Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey on Wednesday for censoring stories from the New York Post about Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden.
During a Senate Commerce Committee hearing on Big Tech censorship, Cruz grilled Dorsey with a number of questions in regards to Twitter’s decision to suspend the New York Post from its platform, saying he believes the social media giants are interfering in the 2020 elections by censoring and suspending accounts which share stories on Hunter Biden from the New York Post.
“Today, right now, the New York Post is still blocked from tweeting, two weeks later,” Cruz said to Dorsey.
“Mr. Dorsey, who the hell elected you? And put you in charge of what the media are allowed to report, and what the American people are allowed to hear… and why do you persist in behaving as a Democratic super PAC?,” Cruz asked Dorsey.

The New York Post report alleges that Joe and Hunter Biden met with a Burisma executive in 2015.
Twitter then started to censor the story on its platform that night and suspended multiple accounts who had shared the post. Twitter then suspended President Donald Trump’s official campaign account after it posted a video relating to the Post’s report.
