McConnell: Twitter Political Ad Ban Clears the Field for Elites

During a speech on the Senate floor on Wednesday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) reacted to Twitter's ban on political ads by stating that "Twitter will either have to ban opinion journalists and the press from advertising their own work, or else create an enormous double standard that would just amplify the already privileged speakers" and that the reasoning behind the ban "gives way to an arbitrary process of picking winners and losers in the competition of ideas."
