Trump preps order forcing social media sites to give conservatives special rights as sons attack Twitter

Eric Trump and Donald Trump Jr. are attacking the social media site their father says helped put him in the White House, as President Donald Trump appears to be following through on a promise to go after social media platforms like Twitter and Facebook. That promise is based on false and debunked claims that “Big Tech,” from Google to social media sites, are biased against conservatives.

Politico reports the Trump White House is circulating several different drafts of what would become an executive order that would somehow regulate free speech on social media platforms, which are publicly-traded private companies. Trump last month promised conservatives he would explore “all regulatory and legislative solutions” to try to control social media companies and other Silicon Valley “Big Tech” corporations, like Google.

White House proposal would have FCC and FTC police alleged social media censorship

Washington (CNN Business) A draft executive order from the White House could put the Federal Communications Commission in charge of shaping how Facebook (FB), Twitter (TWTR) and other large tech companies curate what appears on their websites, according to multiple people familiar with the matter.

The draft order, a summary of which was obtained by CNN, calls for the FCC to develop new regulations clarifying how and when the law protects social media websites when they decide to remove or suppress content on their platforms. Although still in its early stages and subject to change, the Trump administration's draft order also calls for the Federal Trade Commission to take those new policies into account when it investigates or files lawsuits against misbehaving companies.

It's completely so the government can order them to protect stuff the current administration likes, like Russian disinfo and ultra-right calls to armed violence.

Conservatives are such snowflakes. I mean, really. They started Conservapedia because they claimed Wikipedia has a liberal bias. :roll:

If anything, what I find is a lot of antisocial media, especially F'd Book, is extremely slow to deal with complaints against hosted pages and content that contain things like anti-Semitism, Holocaust denial, and advocacy of violence toward minorities.
