May Davis: Section 230 and Suing Big Tech

Broadcast Running Time: 17:20

A few weeks ago, former President Donald Trump filed a class action lawsuit against Google, Twitter, and Facebook for violating the free speech rights of millions of Americans.  What’s behind the lawsuit and what does it have to do with Section 230?  Joining us today is May Davis (iwf.org), Visiting Fellow at the Independent Women’s Forum.  She discusses the publisher versus platform issue, how the lawsuit could succeed given precedent, and regardless of the outcome, the need to apply the rules evenly to everyone.  The repercussions of Big Tech’s censorship could reach farther than just who gets to speak on the internet – it could change the culture and founding principles of the country.
