Sen. Chris Murphy Criticized For Demanding Tech Companies To Ban Other Sites Besides InfoWars

Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT) received some backlash Monday night after he weighed in on the recent banishment of Alex Jones and InfoWars from various platforms.

Murphy took to Twitter to express his overall dissatisfaction with tech giants over their handling of those who spread “hate and lies” on their services.

He called InfoWars the “tip of a giant iceberg of hate and lies”  and that these companies “must do more” than just take down that site since “the survival of our democracy depends on it.”

Such a demand was widely criticized by Conservative Twitter.
