Sen. Rick Scott to Newsmax: ‘They’re Trying to Shut Down Our Voices’

Sen. Rick Scott, R-Fla., told Newsmax Wednesday that DirecTV is “trying to shut down our voices” by deplatforming Newsmax and conservatives more generally.

“We’ve got to get to the bottom of this,” he said during an appearance on Newsmax’s “Spicer & Co.” “This censorship by companies like AT&T of conservative voices, what Google does, what Facebook does, what Elon Musk has put out about what Twitter did, this has got to stop.”

“We need to hold hearings here, we need to get to the bottom of this,” Scott continued. “I’m going to do everything that I can. They already got rid of another conservative network earlier, sometime last year, now Newsmax. This is what they’re trying to do. They’re trying to shut down our voices and we’ve got to fight for this.”
