Biden to REVOKE Section 230 to STOP Social Media Abuse of Others
 
Biden Wants to Get Rid of LAW That Shields Companies Like Facebook From Liability For What Their Users Post

Section 230 is part of a 1996 law on how content can be moderated on the internet, among other guidelines.

Biden has said he wants social media sites to be held liable for the content posted on their platforms; currently they are not under Section 230.


60 Minutes 12 JAN 2021.


In an interview with The New York Times Joe Biden called for tech's biggest liability shield, Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, to be "revoked, immediately."

"The idea that it's a tech company is that Section 230 should be revoked, immediately should be revoked, number one. For Zuckerberg and other platforms," Biden said. "It should be revoked because it is not merely an internet company. It is propagating falsehoods they know to be false."

This wasn't the first time Biden criticized the immensely important internet law. In previous interviews with outlets like CNN, Biden has said that "we should be considering taking away [Facebook's] exemption," but has never ventured as far as saying that it should be completely "revoked." The Verge contacted Biden's campaign to ask if he stands by the statements provided to The New York Times; the campaign did not immediately respond.

The Communications Decency Act is over 20 years old, but lawmakers on both sides of the aisle have started to seek changes to the law as a remedy for all kinds of problems they have with platforms and moderation.

After the live-streamed mass shooting in Christchurch, New Zealand, Democratic lawmakers sought changes to 230 as a method of ensuring that terrorist content is removed from platforms. They've responded to Facebook's refusal to remove misinformation peddled by politicians in digital ads with threats to carve holes in the law as well.
