House Republicans Propose Bill to Block CCP’s Propaganda

Objectivity 3.8 | Credibility 4.6 | Relevance 4.8

House Republicans are set to roll out a measure that would block Big Tech companies from hosting senior Chinese Communist Party (CCP) officials on their social media platforms. The “China Social Media Reciprocity Act” would impose sanctions prohibiting social media platforms to provide accounts to Chinese Communist Party officials, unless the president can certify to Congress the CCP has removed prohibitions on U.S. government officials from accessing, using, or participating in social media platforms in China. Rep. Brian Mast said, “Chinese officials should not be allowed to spew propaganda on U.S.-based social media sites while actively blocking the free flow of ideas on their own sites.”
