His daughter, Alison Parker, was a journalist who was murdered on live television in August 2015. Andy Parker unsuccessfully petitioned YouTube and Facebook to remove the video.
“… [T]These tech companies are profiting from the murder of my daughter,” he said. “They profit from violence. They take advantage of graphic content.”
“And so when we didn’t hear…no further response from the [Federal Trade Commission]I thought, ‘You know, I’ve done everything I can to push this forward as a private citizen, and the only next step I can take is to run for Congress and fight it through the congressional bias.'”
“Because that’s where it’s going to change,” he added. “That’s going to have to change with action from Congress.”
Parker said there was bipartisan concern, adding that “there are thousands of people [who] have had this problem and have had problems and abuse.”
“… [F]or all the wonderful things that Google and Facebook have created, there’s this belly we see,” he said. “And I think the simplest solution – and it may not be the most popular – is to eliminate their liability protection. And if people have legitimate lawsuits, let them have their day in court. I can’t do that, because they have unlimited protection.”

“… [I]If they were to have the same oversight as Fox News or the Washington Post or any other legitimate outlet – if they were to adhere to those same editorial standards – you wouldn’t see this stuff,” he concluded.
