Sen. Marco Rubio, (R-FL) blasted big tech companies on Thursday in an interview with Sean Hannity, saying that they have “assumed basically governmental type powers without being accountable to anyone.”

“They’ve become the new sort of gatekeepers of the public square in American politics,” said Rubio. “If you think about we’ve never been here before. Five companies in America now have the power to basically wipe anybody out and silence anyone, you know, Amazon, Google, Facebook, Twitter, they all get together and they decide we’re going to wipe somebody out. You’re done, there’s nowhere for you to communicate. You can’t even get Web services and you can’t communicate to the outside world your views.”

Rubio argued that these companies have put themselves in a position of determining what news can be reported. “We remember those articles about Hunter Biden and they squashed the New York Post stories. They wouldn’t let it be spread. And now for the first time, we’ve seen them have to go back and remove a ban on stories about the origins of the Covid-19 virus because they’ve proven to be untrue. This is the danger here is you have a bunch of unelected, unaccountable, anonymous people deciding what we’re allowed to say to one another and what we’re allowed to share. That’s a very dangerous moment.”
