Senators Push For Answers on Amazon Book Ban – Washington Free Beacon
(WASHINGTON FREE BEACON) – Four U.S. senators asked Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos for an explanation after his company removed the book When Harry Became Sally: Responding to the Transgender Moment by conservative scholar, Ryan T. Anderson, from all Amazon platforms.
In the letter, Sens. Marco Rubio (R., Fla.), Mike Lee (R., Utah), Mike Braun (R., Ind.), and Josh Hawley (R., Mo.) say that “Amazon has been unable to provide a sufficient explanation as to how Anderson’s book, which reached the top of two of Amazon’s best-seller lists before it was even released in 2018, supposedly violated a vague, undefined ‘offensive content’ standard.” They also note that “by removing this book from its marketplaces and services, Amazon has unabashedly wielded its outsized market share to silence an important voice merely for the crime of violating woke groupthink.”
