FL Gov DeSantis Targets Big Tech Over Censorship and Political Bias

Florida Republican Governor Ron DeSantis announced a massive crackdown on Big Tech over conservative censorship and political bias.

DeSantis announced proposed legislation to penalize social media companies when they censure political candidates, allowing Florida Republicans to take legal action.

Breitbart reports:

“These platforms have changed from neutral platforms that provided Americans with the freedom to speak to enforcers of preferred narratives. Consequently, these platforms have played an increasingly decisive role in elections, and have negatively impacted Americans who dissent from orthodoxies favored by the Big Tech cartel.”

Under consideration are several penalties against the social media platforms, including a $100,000 daily fine for deplatforming political candidates, transparency requirements, and to allow the Florida attorney general to sue under Florida’s Unfair and Deceptive Practices Act, to name a few.

The legislation would also allow Florida residents mandatory opt-outs from content filters.

Florida House of Representatives Blaise Ingoglia, Chairman of the Commerce Committee, will draft the proposed legislation and commented about DeSantis’ announcement.

The Miami Herald reports:

“What we’re looking at is consistency and transparency,’’ he said. “If you are going to de-platform somebody for inciteful speech or hate speech, then you need to de-platform all of it. What we’re seeing is arbitrary decisions that are being made.”

During the press conference, DeSantis called out the media hypocrisy for defending Big Tech.

DeSantis appeared on Fox News with host Tucker Carlson.

Big Tech has a substantial amount of money, power, and influence and continues to pick winners and losers.

DeSantis is doing what Congress won’t do which is taking on Big Tech to hold them accountable over conservative censorship and political bias.
