TRUMP PUTS LEFT-WING TECH GIANTS ON NOTICE: Draft Of Exec Order Directs FCC and FEC To Address Social Media Censorship

Facebook and Twitter are put on notice, FEC and FCC regulations incoming

Is Facebook worried yet? They should be worried.

As promised, President Donald Trump has drafted an Executive Order that would force accountability upon the Tech Giants of Silicon Valley.

After several years of “Shadow Banning” and outright banning people for made up offenses it would appear that the tyrants in charge of social media will finally answer for it. Trump is considering putting the FCC in charge of managing the communications of Americans on social platforms such as Twitter and Facebook.

In the past, people have defended the Tech Giants’ actions, saying they are privately owned businesses. And while, on the surface, that may seem to be true… It isn’t true at all.

You see, social media platforms are not held accountable for the posts on them because they claim to be a platform for public discussion. Allowing people to talk on their site doesn’t make the platform legally responsible for what those people may choose to say. Its under this guise that Facebook claims they “have to censor” people. But on the contrary, the censorship puts them in violation of the law.

When they decide to filter that conversation and censor things they are playing the role of an editor and/or publisher. At that point, they can be held legally responsible for whatever they publish.

 Don’t think that Trump and his staff are unaware of these facts.

CNN reports that a draft executive order from the White House could put the Federal Communications Commission in charge of shaping how Facebook (FB), Twitter (TWTR) and other large tech companies curate what appears on their websites, according to multiple people familiar with the matter.

The draft order, a summary of which was obtained by CNN, calls for the FCC to develop new regulations clarifying how and when the law protects social media websites when they decide to remove or suppress content on their platforms. Although still in its early stages and subject to change, the Trump administration’s draft order also calls for the Federal Trade Commission to take those new policies into account when it investigates or files lawsuits against misbehaving companies. Politico first reported the existence of the draft.

A White House spokesperson declined to comment on the draft order but referred CNN to Trump’s remarks at a recent meeting with right-wing social media activists. During the meeting, Trump vowed to “explore all regulatory and legislative solutions to protect free speech.”
