- Section 230 protects internet services companies from indecent content posted by users
- The bill passed in 1996, long before social media existed
- The courts have routinely sided with social media companies in arguments against protection
President Donald Trump threatened to veto a defense bill over a 1996 law that shields websites from liability over content created by their users.
The president said he would veto the $740 billion National Defense Authorization Act over Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, which he called a “liability” that leaves national security and election integrity exposed to risk because of the protection it provides to “Big Tech”
…..Therefore, if the very dangerous & unfair Section 230 is not completely terminated as part of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), I will be forced to unequivocally VETO the Bill when sent to the very beautiful Resolute desk. Take back America NOW. Thank
