    Trump Admin Will Clarify Sect 230 Regulations After Big Techs Electoral Interferen

    The Trump administration announced on Thursday that the Federal Communications Commission will be issuing a clarification regarding Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, which has given special immunities to Big Tech firms which exempt from liability for content published on their platforms.

    Members of all three branches of the federal government have expressed serious concerns about the prevailing interpretation of the immunity set forth in Section 230 of the Communications Act. There is bipartisan support in Congress to reform the law. The U.S. Department of Commerce has petitioned the Commission to clarify ambiguities in section 230. And earlier this week, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas pointed out that courts have relied upon policy and purpose arguments to grant sweeping protections to Internet platforms that appear to go far beyond the actual text of the provision, FCC Chairman Ajit Pai wrote in a statement.


    As elected officials consider whether to change the law, the question remains: What does Section 230 currently mean? Many advance an overly broad interpretation that in some cases shields social media companies from consumer protection laws in a way that has no basis in the text of Section 230. The Commissions General Counsel has informed me that the FCC has the legal authority to interpret Section 230. Consistent with this advice, I intend to move forward with a rulemaking to clarify its meaning, he added.

    It's long overdue. They long ago ceased to be mere content providers.

    Just consider, the large majority of tech workers are foreign nationals.

    They should have started this in 2016! Sooner would have been better...but they were joined at the hip with Obama.

    Thank you. I disagree with Conservatives on many issues.

    But Conservatives are working to preserve Freedom and that is a great good for Humankind. I hope Freedom can still be saved.

    I bet that nothing is going to be done about this issue. Just another public hearing to fool the public.
