According to Fox News, Donald Trump may have a ‘ground breaking’ legal case against Facebook.
Fox Reported: VIVEK RAMASWAMY: “President Trump should take this case—not to Facebook’s sham corporate Supreme Court—he should take it to the real U.S. Supreme Court. And I actually think he has a potentially groundbreaking legal theory. Facts are on his side, where these companies aren’t like normal private companies. They’re effectively doing the bidding of Democrats in Congress who have threatened them with regulation and reprisal if they don’t go out and censor content that they as Democrats don’t want to see and they give them Section 230 immunity and go out and do it.”
It’s no doubt that companies like Facebook receive massive amounts of government subsidies. The act almost effectively as government enforced monopolies that censor speech. For 88% of Americans digital devices are their primary source of news consumption according to Pew Research. Pew also reported that 53% of Americans use social media “often, or sometimes” to consume news.
This means that if social media feeds are manipulated to show only certain stories, or certain points of view, these companies could sway public opinion with ease. This is undoubtedly election meddling.
Recently, NPR has admitted via a tweet, and article that preventing Donald Trump from rejoining Facebook could doom his future political career.
