What if major US Internet technology companies insist on cooperating with the pseudo-mainstream media in the US?
We must immediately revoke the protection for them under Article 230 of the (United States of America) Communications Regulations Act.
When the US government granted these protections, they created huge monsters!
U.S. President Donald Trump stated that after Twitter and Facebook censored a harshly worded report on Hunter Biden’s so-called e-mail by the New York Post, the Biden family had been criticized by large technology companies. protection”.
“He and his family were dishonest. They were caught. Now they are being protected by large technology companies,” Trump told North Carolina people at the Pete Greenville Airport.
He said: “We must immediately remove the 230 clause protection for these technology giants.”
Article 230 of the 1996 Communications Standards Act stipulates: “Any provider or user of interactive computer services shall not be regarded as the publisher or spokesperson of any information provided by other information content providers.”
This part has played a key role in the rise of today’s social media giants. It allows Internet service providers-as well as Google, Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, etc.-to be exempt from liability for content published by third parties on their platforms . But some right-wing critics believe that if tech giants censor conservative views, including Trump’s controversial posts, they should no longer benefit from Section 230 protection.
When talking about the responsibility protection of social media platforms, Trump said: “Years ago, large technology companies got something that made them large technology companies. We have to take away their 230 clauses unless they perform well. ”
“Believe it or not, the Democrats agree with this,” Trump continued. Democrats on Capitol Hill threatened to break up large technology companies, questioning whether these companies violated US antitrust laws and stole information from competitors.
On Wednesday, the “Washington Post” published a report containing an email they obtained from a whistleblower. The email stated that Biden’s son introduced Biden, the then Vice President, to an executive of Burisma Holdings, a Ukrainian gas company. Less than a year ago, the Trump administration pressured Ukrainian government officials to fire the prosecutor Victor Shokin who was investigating the company.
According to the owner of a repair shop in Biden’s hometown of Delaware, the emails were found in data stored on computers. Isaac, the owner of the store, said that he cannot be 100% sure that this customer is Hunter Biden, but this customer has taken a laptop from the store in the future. He said that he contacted the FBI out of concerns about the contents of the computer.
Isaac told the Washington Post that he thought it was Hunter Biden’s laptop because it had stickers from the Bo Biden Foundation, which was named after his late brother.
