Federal Communication Commission chairman Ajit Pai announced Thursday that he intends to “clarify” the meaning of Section 230 of the Communication Decency Act, which indemnifies internet companies from liability over content posted by their users.
Pai’s announcement comes one day after Twitter prohibited users from posting links to a New York Post story about Hunter Biden, former Vice President Joe Biden and the Ukrainian gas company Burisma.
Twitter’s suppression of the story led President Donald Trump to call for the repeal of Section 230.
So terrible that Facebook and Twitter took down the story of “Smoking Gun” emails related to Sleepy Joe Biden and his son, Hunter, in the @NYPost. It is only the beginning for them.
