The Senate commerce committee held the hearing with CEOs of Twitter, Facebook, and Google to discuss Section 230 and Republicans' concerns about censorship online — they've accused the companies of discriminating against conservative views on their platforms.

Lee, the senior US senator from Utah, addressed the CEOs about their content-moderation policies, which he said were disproportionately applied to conservative ideologies. He defined what he considered "censorship" in regard to the way content is treated on these platforms.

"When I use the word 'censor' here, I'm meaning blocked content, fact-check, or labeled content, or demonetized websites of conservative, Republican, or pro-life individuals or groups or companies," Lee said.
