GOP Senator Goes After Facebook, Youtube And Twitter

Sen. Josh Hawley, R-Mo., on Wednesday took another shot at Silicon Valley with proposed legislation that would remove protections large online platforms receive under U.S. law.

Hawley's bill would change Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act of 1996, which provides immunity for big tech platforms like Facebook, YouTube and Twitter from liability for content posted by its users.

Under his legislation, titled the Ending Support for Internet Censorship Act, companies would have to earn immunity by submitting to Federal Trade Commission audits that prove their algorithms and content-removal practices are "politically neutral."

Personally, I think this is a potential double-edged sword.

It’s a step in the right direction. These tech companies have become too big to care what their users think of their practices. This is a less intrusive method of regulation before the big step of breaking them up with anti-trust proceedings.
