Too Long; Didn't Read

President Trump signed an Executive Order that is apparently intended to cut back liability protection currently afforded under federal law to social media platforms that edit or eliminate third-party content that violates terms of service. The order is the latest in a growing conservative backlash against the media, which the White House perceives to have a successful and successful legal action, which would threaten the public interaction between the public and social media. The White House will act as a conduit to a working group of State Attorneys General for complaints about improper censorship.
