  1. What Facebook did was WRONG !!

    I have a problem with that and think these social media giants should be reformed . The devil is in the details and perhaps that is why nothing is getting done on Section 230.

    Section 230 is a provision of the 1996 Communications Decency Act that protects companies that host user-created content from lawsuits over posts on their services. The law shields both internet service providers, like AT&T, Comcast and Verizon, and social media and internet platforms, like Facebook, Twitter and Google.

    Section 230 isn’t blanket protection. There are exceptions for federal crimes or intellectual property claims. A company could still be held accountable if it knowingly allowed users to post illegal content.

    The law provides social media companies with sweeping protections that let them choose what content they restrict, and how. This means social media platforms can’t be sued for taking down content or leaving it up.

    Something needs to change.

    1. Fred, the Republicans have been part of the problem. They don’t want to go after big corporations and tell them how to do business, even when their actions are egregiously improper and violate the understanding that animated the legal protections they have been given.
