The CEOs of four major technology companies - Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg, Jeff Bezos of Amazon, Apple's Tim Cook and Sundar Pichai of Alphabet, the parent company of Google - faced questions over their ongoing power and influence as part of a House panel's yearlong investigation of market dominance in the industry.

Several Republican representatives focused their questioning over claims that conservative voices had been silenced on their platforms, including Amazon suspending President Donald Trump's own Twitch account over what it called "hateful content."

Democrats raised questions over how platforms like Facebook have responded to misinformation, including their speed at responding to videos like that of lab coat-wearing doctors making several unproven claims; including that studies which have found hydroxychloroquine to be ineffective against COVID-19 were "fake science." Zuckerberg responded defending its "track record" for responding to misinformation.

Subcommittee on Antitrust, Commercial and Administrative Law hearing begins: 1:01:19
