Big Tech Project

EPPC’s Big Tech Project is dedicated to advancing policy solutions that will hold Big Tech companies accountable for their practices and actions against the interests of the American public. The Project’s primary focus is ending Big Tech’s censorship of conservative voices and speech. Related goals of the project include: 

  • Holding Big Tech companies accountable for illicit and criminal content hosted on their platforms 
  • Highlighting Big Tech companies’ abuses of their market power and potential violations of antitrust law 
  • Advocating Section 230 reform to end Big Tech’s improper use of the immunities Section 230 currently provides them  
  • Exposing the harmful effects that Big Tech’s products and services are having on America’s children 

Big Tech cannot be trusted to regulate itself any longer. EPPC’s Big Tech Project will work with executive-branch officials, members of Congress, and state attorneys general to build a diverse coalition for holding Big Tech companies accountable and developing policy solutions that realign their incentives with the best interests of all Americans. 

EPPC Policy Analyst Clare Morell coordinates the Big Tech Project. Before joining EPPC, Ms. Morell worked as an Advisor to Attorney General Bill Barr. As part of her work for the Attorney General, she helped oversee the President’s Commission on Law Enforcement and the Administration of Justice and served as editor of the Commission’s final report. A major focus of the Commission’s report was the challenges that Big Tech presents to law enforcement for gaining lawful access to crucial intelligence in criminal investigations and in hosting and facilitating criminal activity. Ms. Morell also supported the Attorney General’s work on Section 230 reform as one of his main priorities.
