The NRB says it is encouraged that President Trump’s Executive Order and proposed legislation are opening up an important conversation about the threats posed by powerful social media companies that often censor opinions with which they disagree. In his ‘Executive Order on Preventing Online Censorship’, issued Thursday, the President reiterated his “commitment to free and open debate on the internet,” and recognized how leading online platforms “are engaging in selective censorship that is harming our national discourse.”

“We must seek transparency and accountability from online platforms, and encourage standards and tools to protect and preserve the integrity and openness of American discourse and freedom of expression,” the President stated.

The Executive Order goes on to call for reviews of federal spending, law enforcement at the federal and state level, and anti-discrimination laws, as applied to online platforms that may be engaged in viewpoint discrimination, deception to consumers, or other bad practices. The President also called for clarification of the scope of the immunity from liability created by section 230(c) of the Communications Decency Act, which facilitates internet companies’ “Good Samaritan” blocking of offensive content by defending them from lawsuits based on content their moderation efforts may have missed.
