Recent reports have suggested that Facebook is limiting when it displays stories from conservative outlets in its trending news panel. This issue should be of concern to everyone who values free speech. The American people are fatigued with liberal elites trying to either sequester or elevate information in order to push an ideology.

The Energy & Commerce Committee, where I serve as Vice Chair, will have Facebook come in to brief us on their approach to trending. We have their guidelines now and are reviewing that document. You can read them for yourself here: Facebook's Trending Review Guidelines
