(AbsoluteNews.com) – On January 6, protesters stormed the Capitol building. In the days after, the media and Democrats blamed President Donald Trump for the incident, leading social media platforms to ban him. Now, experts are issuing warnings about the implications of the decision to censor the POTUS.
Matt Hancock, the UK’s health secretary, slammed Twitter for censoring the US president. He said the decision could lead to more regulations on Big Tech overseas. In America, Republican lawmakers are echoing the sentiments. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) said he is “more determined than ever” to get rid of Section 230 and open the companies up to liability.
I’m more determined than ever to strip Section 230 protections from Big Tech (Twitter) that let them be immune from lawsuits.
— Lindsey Graham (@LindseyGrahamSC) January 9, 2021
Reports indicate President Donald Trump is going to work on the issue before January 20. The president has long believed the companies need to be treated as publishers and held liable for unfairly targeting Conservatives. Now, that becomes more important than ever as Big Tech tries to silence a sitting POTUS.
