Parler CEO John Matze slammed the world’s largest social media platforms for engaging in partisan behavior during the 2020 presidential election. Matze said that the mere fact that both Twitter and Facebook are fact-checking users indicates bias.
“I don’t think that there’s any perfect group without bias, so in terms of being a platform for transparency and free speech, they’ve gone way too far,” Matze told Fox Business Anchor Maria Bartiromo.
Bartiromo said that she was leaving Twitter after her posts about the election were flagged as misleading. “In this election, we need more transparency and it’s really important,” Matze said.
Parlor is promoted as a non-biased, free speech social media focused on protecting user’s rights. Matze said Twitter should not be exempt through Section 230 of the 1996 Communications Decency Act, because the Big Tech company is acting as a publisher.
“This is particularly concerning because President Trump and former Vice President Biden, their campaigns know more about the election than Twitter and Facebook’s fact-checkers,” he said. “They’ve been working on this stuff for years.”
