Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Dailymail.co.uk: “Google, Facebook and Twitter face bias reckoning”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

It comes after Twitter slapped two of the President's tweets with a 'fact check' on Tuesday and Trump hit back by saying he would regulate and even shut down the Silicon Valley giants if they are shown to be biased.

Trump is expected to set up a mechanism allowing Americans to report alleged political censorship or bias by the social media giants which will be investigated by the Federal Trade Commission.

His executive order is also expected to order a review of a law that has long protected Twitter, Facebook and Google from being responsible for the material posted by their users.
