Big Tech's First Amendment Argument Might Eviscerate Section 230

Last month, the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals held that several parts of Florida’s social media law, S.B. 7072, were likely unconstitutional. That sentence should give readers pause. The court’s decision did not rest on Section 230. Rather, it rested on the argument that social media platforms (platforms) enjoy a First Amendment right to censor, shadow-ban, deplatform, and moderate third-party content in any way they want. Last week, the Supreme Court blocked a similar Texas social media law from being enforced that the 5th Circuit greenlighted. While the justices that granted relief from the shadow docket did not explain their reasoning, the decision resulted in an unusual 5-4 split.

Oppose the So-Called “For the People Act,” H.R. 1

On behalf of our activist community, I urge you to contact your representative and ask him or her to oppose the so-called “For the People Act,” H.R. 1. Introduced by Rep. John Sarbanes (D-Md.), the For the People Act would deter political free speech and federalize elections. This is one of the more bold-faced assaults on the First Amendment that has come through Congress in quite some time.

Jordan Bill Safeguards Freedom of the Press

Reps. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) and Jamie Raskin (D-Md.) are renewing the push for their bill, The Free Flow of Information Act of 2017, H.R.4382, to protect our First Amendment rights. It is identical to a bill that then-Congressman Mike Pence co-authored in 2007. This legislation must be passed in order to ensure the legitimacy of our media, and to protect journalists from government abuse.

TSA Caught Violating Civil Liberties (Again)

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has created a secret watch list of individuals who they claim pose potential threats to airport security. This ridiculous “safety precaution” allows the TSA, an unaccountable government agency, to get away with unnecessary and invasive searches and violates travelers’ privacy rights.

Everywhere a Student Happens to Be Standing Is a "Free Speech Zone"

Free speech on college campuses has become a significant issue. From the riots at Berkeley over Milo Yiannopoulos, to the use of harassment of Charles Murray at Middlebury College, there have been cases of individuals being silenced to stop them from speaking their thoughts on various issues. However, one pressing issue has been administrative support to silence dissent and prevent opposing viewpoints from being heard. This flies in the face of actually learning, of which colleges are supposed to be a bastion.

Net Neutrality Ruling: A Blow to Internet Freedom

In a blow to Internet freedom, a federal appeals court has given a green light to the Federal Communications Commission's (FCC) Open Internet Order, a plan to impose net neutrality rules on the Internet. Most disturbingly, the ruling yesterday by a 3-judge panel of the D.C. Circuit affirmed the basis for the Order, the FCC's determination that it can apply utility-style regulations – intended for telephone companies under the Communications Act of 1934 – to land-based and wireless Internet service providers (ISP). In one of the most egregious instances of overreaching by federal agencies under the Obama Administration, the FCC used the determination to grant itself sweeping power to regulate the Internet, opening the door to a plethora of burdensome Internet regulations.
