When Social Media CEOs, heading publicly traded companies, make false statements to the public in regards to policy on censorship, and political bias, they are engaging in market manipulation by defrauding potential investors into believing that consumers will have access to certain content, regardless of political affiliation, when in reality bias is demonstrated and content is limited for conservative users, to include practices such as shadow banning, account suspension and deactivation for content not in violation of policy as exemplified by similar content tolerated with liberal users, suppression through allowing targeted harassment from liberal users, and bots being allowed to inflate and promote accounts with political affiliations favorable to the CEOs. The SEC must review if parties donated to and from by these companies benefited unethically by these unequal enforcement and censorship practices and if parties making public statements are knowingly maintaining a public front and a private practice in order to maintain favorable investor status while staying in favor with private donors and beneficiaries. These practices suppress upstarts who value free speech, have led to a monopoly on a public sphere, and are contrary to the laws and values that regulate such businesses and guarantee equal competition.
