Trump Launches NUCLEAR Option Over Social Media Censorship Of Conservatives, Targets Section 230
Trump Launches NUCLEAR Option Over Social Media Censorship Of Conservatives, Targets Section 230. An executive order targeting social media censorship has leaked showing impending action and it seems Big Tech is scared.
The order directs the FCC to clarify what constitutes certain phrases under section 230 and could see Twitter, Facebook, and Youtube lose liability protections if they run afoul.
Democrats currently want to outright revoke section 230 protections because they don’t like conservatives ability to communicate but conservatives don’t like big tech getting it both ways, being a publisher that can censor but also a platform that can’t get in trouble.
Many people, like Ben Shapiro and Robby Soave, feel that this could get back for the right and end up generating more censorship.
I disagree however as this EO would restrict what could be censored.
