Trump takes on Social Media Giants over Censorship

President Trump on Friday blasted efforts from social media companies to “censor” controversial messages and clamp down on “fake news,” urging tech companies to allow Americans to figure out the truth for themselves.

Trump’s remarks on social media censorship also come the same day that Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey faces a deadline from House lawmakers to decide whether to testify next month before the House Energy and Commerce Committee over questions of conservative censorship or face a subpoena.

Lawmakers including committee chairman Rep. Greg Walden (R-Ore.) are demanding answers over accusations that Twitter officials “shadow-banned” some conservatives due to their political viewpoints, a process that hides a user’s post from followers without their knowledge.

  1. The Social Media Tech Giants cannot have it both ways. Either they are a public forum, with NO censorship, or they are a private publisher subject to other laws of liability. See Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act. Senator Ted Cruz is onto this matter also.
