A spokesperson for the Texas Republican and an statement from conservative radio host Dennis Prager indicate Sen. Ted Cruz is expected to host a congressional hearing next week to address allegations of online partisan bias.

Specifically, he is expected to address concerns that Google has stifled expression by individuals on the right.

The statement by a rep for Prager’s PragerU elaborated on the hearing’s intent.

“Next Tuesday, PragerU’s cofounder Dennis Prager will testify before the U.S. Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution, chaired by Senator Ted Cruz. His testimony is expected to highlight how online media targets conservatives like Prager University and seeks to remove their voices from the public square.”
