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.

The State of Free Speech on College Campuses

What if you couldn’t speak your mind or express your opinion? What if you were punished for disagreeing with others around you? On college campuses across America, this is a reality.

Support the Don’t Weaponize the IRS Act, S. 1777

On behalf of FreedomWorks’ activist community, I urge you to contact your senators and ask them to cosponsor the Don’t Weaponize the IRS Act, S. 1777, introduced by Sen. Mike Braun (R-Ind.). This bill would protect free speech and shield Americans from being targeted due to their political beliefs by codifying the May 2020 Treasury Department rule that eliminated the requirement of 501(c)(4) organizations to disclose donors’ personal information to the IRS.

Dems' S1 Election Bill Poses Grave Threat to Free Speech

BY Adam Brandon and Sen. Jerry Moran

As politics grows even more polarized and our political dialogue continues to weaken, opportunities for bipartisan cooperation have become few and far between. However, recent actions by the U.S. House of Representatives and the Supreme Court have presented an issue that cries out for bipartisan unity – the protection of free speech.

Key Vote NO on the “For the Politicians” Act, H.R. 1

On behalf of our activist community, I urge you to contact your representative and ask him or her to vote NO on the so-called “For the People” Act, H.R. 1. More appropriately titled the “For the Politicians” Act, H.R. 1 would have profoundly negative implications for the Constitution, free speech, and how states run elections. The rhetoric that congressional Democrats have used to promote H.R. 1 is disingenuous and, quite often, Orwellian.

France Remains a Bastion of Free Speech—Will Americans Take Note?

Seeing that Turkish leaders have condemned the French publication Charlie Hebdo, the stark differences in government between the two countries could not be more evident. Turkey’s Erdogan jails journalists, while France remains an ardent defender of the freedom of the press. Turkey has become increasingly authoritarian while France remains a resolute liberal democracy. Freedom of speech is the key difference here, and it shows just how essential this fundamental principle is to liberty.

Twitter’s Arbitrary Censorship is a Bad Business Model

Twitter and Facebook’s recent decision to censor the New York Post’s story on Hunter Biden’s ties to Burisma may very well be a tipping point in the fight over Big Tech. Conservatives have a clear reason to be concerned that companies such as Twitter and Facebook, among others, are essentially engaging in election interference. It is no surprise that conservatives are leaving in droves to alternative platforms.

Antitrust is Not the Remedy to Conservative Concerns about Big Tech

The Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on Antitrust, Consumer Policy, and Consumer Rights is meeting this week to discuss whether Google has engaged in anti-competitive business practices through its domination of the online advertising market. Led by Subcommittee Chairman Mike Lee (R-Utah), this hearing should have less of the circus atmosphere than last month’s House hearing on antitrust and big tech, which seemed more like an excuse for both parties to yell at Silicon Valley’s most powerful CEOs for soundbites.
