As a side note, the EO itself, as in what it is looking to do, isn't that bad. In a truly objective reality it is basically saying that these big companies have a ton of control over our conversations, and we the government want to make sure the control they are using is being done in a more fair way, fair as in the companies are following their own rules, not some government mandated rule. Though still I think the point of this was more of a warning then anything.

I think that's the point. Nothing in this is an actual action that can easily be challenged in the courts, since what is being done amounts to "look into this shit". The problem really is is that it amounts more to intimidation. It's sort of a shot across the bow. Now whether Trump or Congress will actually do anything we will see. The only really good thing I suppose is that since Trump is for curtailing these protections you'll see more people who otherwise would agree with that idea instead choosing to oppose it, and him. Let's hope that's enough.

HA!

The executive order ends with "This order shall be implemented consistent with applicable law and subject to the availability of appropriations."

So, since Congress appropriates, and they haven't appropriated a single minute of anyone's time for this …



Shit this almost makes me wish I was still in the chain somewhere … anyone with half a brain could probably milk this for 6 months of paid overtime with zero deliverables because it would actually be illegal to work on it.

Trump spewing verbal diarrhea is just white noise at this point.

I'm just waiting to DVR my favorite Comedy Central programs. I can't wait for the yucks gained from Hannity going on about 'The underage Deep State' or guffaw at how Greg Gutfield sees his fellow kids are all the time getting in mail boxes while he asks 'How do you do' and so on.



Huh? What do you mean Fox News isn't a parody of hack propagandists?

Here's the actual executive order

I've worked with these kinds of things most of my professional life, and just glancing through it I gotta say this is the most convoluted and utterly insane pile of pouting, rambling, incoherent and pointless set of federal directives I've ever seen.

Even the parts that appear to be declarative aren't actionable. It just directs people and departments to make lists, pass them back and forth to each other, and then be worried about them.

I can't find any authority, or any deliverables.

Anyone find anything in here that directs anyone to do anything that results in any action or deliverable other than gathering data About what is being spent in ads, forwarding it to someone else, and them not doing anything with it?

Oh, or "consider taking action" on things or reporting shit that's already been reported numerous times before. I can't tell you how many times a federal directive told me I or my department should "consider taking action." It pays well. If you can get a job where your only deliverable is "considering action", take it. And stock up on alcohol, video games, and model kits. It's a good gig.

For someone who hates regulation as much as Trump claims to, there's a lot of whining in this document that there should be tons more regulation.

"Right wing propaganda and misinformation"

When decoded Biden means "Things I don't like". Stupid how these politicians are so power hungry. Hopefully once Trump cools down he will leave this at the EO and not push it further.

According to the draft from last night (not sure if it was the version he signed) but it would set up a system to monitor and collect data on social media users.


We Communist now.

I think he just doesn't want sites like this to ban people for saying "nigger" or "stingey kikes" but not "eat the rich" or "cops are pigs".

Removing the protections 230 gives would just make sites go into overdrive deleting and blocking content to avoid any potential legal risk given they'd be held liable for some toad's shitpost in the comment section of a 3 year old article, and it'll inevitably extend and be abused by companies and individuals to shut down content and sites for user posts they want to sue over in civil court.

If it helps you any, Patachu, consider that this is exactly what Biden wanted and planned to propose, specifically to shut down right wing propaganda and misinformation. Trump is just too fucking stupid to realize what he's doing and is reacting out of an anger tantrum. And by the by, Twitter's service is not gratuitous, users pay for it with their attention on ads and promoted content/accounts.

If you threaten to blow up the whitehouse over the phone your phone company is not held responsible, if 230 is gone and yoy do that on Facebook Facebook can be liable. Again if your goal is for these companies to NOT act like speech controllers you WANT the law in place.

@Background Human
justifying or defending communism, an ideology that made hundreds of million of death through history is saying an horrible thing.

@Background Pony #02F1
Why? They are private companies and they own the platform, so they have every right to set the terms by which people are able to use it. That includes the right to regulate what people say on it, especially if it involves threats or misleading information that could lead people to harm.

So is your phone company, or e-mail. or landlord, or webhost, or email provider, or the post office, or any private corporation that provides services allowing you to say what you can.
Imagine an AI in Adobe that detects when you start drawing something sensitive «You can not do this, first strike; if you continue, this software will close and this work will be deleted» or a new version of MS-Word «The text can not be saved or printed due to the paragraph "never forget that biology only recognizes two sexes;" detected as: hatespeech.»

You are wrong or don't understand what is a service. Twitter / Facebook are nothing but webhosts, providers of a service that is gratuituous.
This is censorship, and preventing or banning anyone from expressing themselves on any social network, a service of public utility is the exact same thing. The «private company» has no point here.

Liberals get mad when conservatives aren't banned for saying horrible things.

As long as conservatives insist on saying horrible things, the tech companies are in a bit of a no-win situation.

There was a time that liberals and conservatives banded together to protect safe haven regulations and the like from government encroachment.

Seems those days are gone.
