Senator Chuck Grassley during a floor speech accused social media companies Facebook and Twitter of engaging in "election interference and anti-conservative bias."
The Iowa Republican's remarks came on Monday, after Facebook and Twitter came under fire for blocking reporting related to Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden's son, Hunter Biden.
Grassley noted that Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe on Monday said that Hunter Biden's computer is not a part of a Russian disinformation effort.
"You know what actually is fake news? The Steele Dossier," Grassley said. "But I don't recall reporters and big tech censoring the false reporting about President Trump and the Steele Dossier. Instead the liberal media did just the opposite. They became super spreaders of false reporting across the world."
Continued Grassley: "Democrats and liberals in the press can't have veto authority over information just because it makes their nominee look bad. They can't have a double standard. Vice President Biden owes the American people answers."
