They better change or else.
In a recent interview with the “Hugh Hewitt Show,” Sen. Rick Scott (R-FL) warned that if social media tech giants “continue to pick and choose,” “do exactly what they’re doing, where they go after conservative sites,” and don’t don’t start acting in a fair and neutral manner, “they’re going to lose their immunity” under Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act.
According to Breitbart, Host Hugh Hewitt questioned, “Do you believe these large social media platforms ought to have the protections of Section 230, that they ought to be treated as bulletin boards as opposed to publishers? Because I no longer do.”
Scott replied, “Hugh, they’re going to lose their immunity if they don’t change. If they just — if they do exactly what they’re doing, where they go after conservative sites…Twitter was in one day, and I said, so, you kicked — I guess that was when they kicked Mitch McConnell off, but Maduro, you’re okay with Maduro down in Venezuela that’s doing genocide against his people. You never kick any — stop any of his stuff. So if that’s — if they continue to pick and choose, they’re going to lose their immunity. It’s just a matter of time.”
