From Fox Business:
Facebook has hired a highly influential Democratic aide away from a Senate committee that has set its sights on reigning in Big Tech, as the company aims to fend off threats from Congress and the Biden administration.
The company confirmed to FOX Business that John Branscome, staff director and former chief counsel for the Senate Commerce subcommittee on technology, will be joining the ranks of its federal policy team.
“This is terrifying,” said Adam Guillette, president of Accuracy in Media. “We’re moving from ‘governing by legislation’ to ‘governing by corporation.’”
“Biden and the DNC can’t ban speech, but they can have their allies at Facebook do it for them,” Guillette told FOX Business. “And let’s remember that the marriage of big government and big business is the literal definition of economic fascism.”
