Large technology companies are contributing 95 percent of their electoral donations to the campaign of Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden, amid allegations of mismanagement of the industry, according to one study.
The document also highlights that this tradition comes from the Obama era that now continues to benefit Democrats, according to the publication of the American monthly magazine WIRED, on Oct. 6.
The analysis by Open Secrets, a campaign finance watchdog, is based on information provided by the Federal Election Commission about individual contributions of more than $200 to a presidential campaign.
The six companies contributed $4,787,752 to Biden and $239,527 to Trump, which clearly shows the strong leftist trend of typical Silicon Valley companies, located in the San Francisco Bay Area.
The study includes donations from employees of Alphabet, Amazon, Apple, Facebook, Microsoft, and Oracle since early 2019.
In addition, these officials have a history of collective protests against the Trump administration since the early days of his administration in 2017, when more than 2,000 Google employees demonstrated against the immigration ban issued by President Donald Trump.
Again in 2018, they protested against Project Maven, which developed artificial intelligence for the Pentagon, WIRED reported.
Along with these actions against the Trump administration, large social networking platforms such as Facebook are accused of a strong censorship campaign against pages run by conservative individuals and organizations.
To exercise censorship, they apply their own parameters and algorithms, which tend to block the freedom of expression of users, including President Trump himself.
These recurring irregularities have forced President Trump and several Republican congressmen to clarify existing legislation so that it can be effectively applied to limit interference by large technology companies in the rights of Americans.
Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, which was drafted in 1996, is being revised.
Thus, it seeks to strip social networks of the privilege they have as hosts of users’ messages, so that they become editors, which would make them lose “immunity” and be susceptible to lawsuits for censorship and slander.
