Whistleblower Exposes How Section 230 Permits Publishers to Commit Defamation Without Consequence

This is why Section 230 needs to be reformed or abolished.

Published

A whistleblower has emerged to tell his own personal story about how the Huffington Post circulated false sexual assault allegations against him and got away with it by hiding behind Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act.

Journalist Jordan Chariton shared his story in response to a post by President Trump advocating for Section 230’s repeal about how this big government regulatory overreach allowed the fake news media to destroy his good name.

He explained how HuffPo bloggers orchestrated the lie in the run up to the #MeToo witch hunts that have put due process and the presumption of innocence in jeopardy:

Chariton lost significant business opportunities because of their hit piece:

Even though there were significant damages to Chariton’s reputation and the HuffPo blogger admitted they did a poor job with the article, he could not receive any restitution because of Section 230:

In addition, Chariton received word that there was an institutional conspiracy to destroy and defame him by disreputable interests in the left-wing media:

Even though his career was nearly destroyed, Chariton does not blame the #MeToo movement but hopes journalists hold themselves to a higher standard:

However, regulatory changes will likely be needed to protect journalism and hold monolithic corporate institutions accountable in the current digital landscape.

Big League Politics has reported on the reform efforts of Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) and other lawmakers in Washington D.C. opposed to Big Tech’s monopoly power:

Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) has emerged as the leading reformer against social media censorship, as he is going after their special immunity privileges under Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act.

As it states right now, Section 230 states that “no provider or user of an interactive computer service shall be treated as the publisher or speaker of any information provided by another information content provider.”

Howley’s bill, the Ending Support for Internet Censorship Act, would remove that exemption for Big Tech firms if they act like publishers instead of neutral platforms. Corporations would have to comply with external audits proving their algorithms and content moderation are not biased.

“With Section 230, tech companies get a sweetheart deal that no other industry enjoys: complete exemption from traditional publisher liability in exchange for providing a forum free of political censorship,” Hawley said in a statement. “Unfortunately, and unsurprisingly, big tech has failed to hold up its end of the bargain.”

“There’s a growing list of evidence that shows big tech companies making editorial decisions to censor viewpoints they disagree with,” Hawley added. “Even worse, the entire process is shrouded in secrecy because these companies refuse to make their protocols public. This legislation simply states that if the tech giants want to keep their government-granted immunity, they must bring transparency and accountability to their editorial processes and prove that they don’t discriminate.”

Section 230 gives the most powerful corporations in the world carte blanche to destroy the rights of ordinary people. This heinous act must be reformed or abolished for internet freedom to sustain itself in the years to come.

Twitter Censors Former Obama Attorney General Eric Holder for Warning of Dangers about Mail-in Voting

Big Tech is out of control.

Published

Twitter has censored Obama-era attorney general Eric Holder for warning liberal Democrats against mail-in voting at this stage of the electoral race.

“It’s too late to use the mails,” Holder wrote in his shuttered tweet. “Given Supreme Court rulings I urge everyone to now vote in person; early vote or use drop boxes.”

Holder is referring to recent rulings in places like Wisconsin and Michigan, two battleground states where the Democrats were pushing for votes to be counted even if they were submitted by mail following election day. These rulings have made it significantly more difficult for Democrats to commit widespread voter fraud in those states.

“Protect your health but don’t let the Court and the deliberately crippled Postal Service deprive you of your most precious civil right. Plan your vote,” Holder added.

In response to Holder’s plea to Democrats, Twitter limited the distribution of his tweet and provided the following warning: “Some or all of the content shared in this Tweet is disputed and might be misleading about how to participate in an election or another civic process.”

Left-wing journalist Michael Tracey, who has been a principled opponent to Big Brother censorship by Silicon Valley monopolies, pointed out how these corporate restrictions on free speech will inevitably hurt the liberals who are begging for it out of political expediency:

Big League Politics has reported on the many occasions that Twitter has censored President Trump for voicing concerns about the security of mail-in voting:

The social media giant Twitter is censoring President Donald Trump again, placing a warning on a tweet he published Sunday morning about the dangers of mail-in voting.

“So now the Democrats are using Mail Drop Boxes, which are a voter security disaster. Among other things, they make it possible for a person to vote multiple times. Also, who controls them, are they placed in Republican or Democrat areas? They are not Covid sanitized. A big fraud!” Trump wrote in his Tweet.

“This Tweet violated the Twitter Rules about civic and election integrity. However, Twitter has determined that it may be in the public’s interest for the Tweet to remain accessible,” Twitter wrote in their warning about Trump’s Tweet…

This is not the first time that the platform has censored Trump because of comments he made about mail-in voting. Twitter redirected users to establishment propaganda in favor of mail-in voting earlier this year after Trump made a post about its dangers…

While Twitter considers President Trump’s attempts to protect the integrity of the U.S. elections a violation of their terms of service, they allow pedophiles to discuss raping children on their platform.

If President Trump loses next week’s election, the Orwellian Nightmare becomes the new normal, and Democrat traitors will be responsible for ushering in this permanent dystopia.
