not canceled
May 4, 2021

"Don't try to censor, cancel, and silence me here," Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) told The Washington Post's tech policy reporter Cat Zakrzewski during a live broadcast interview on Tuesday amid a disagreement over the precise nature of the Supreme Court's dismissal of an election integrity lawsuit in Pennsylvania.

Zakrzewski quickly pointed out that she was not, in fact, canceling Hawley, but rather "hosting" him, which could reasonably be seen as the opposite of censorship.

The rest of the interview, which largely focused on Hawley's views on antitrust reform, seemed to go much more smoothly. Watch the full Washington Post interview below. Tim O'Donnell
