Way Past Time to Rein in the Tech Giants

 The CDA - Communications Decency Act - that enabled the original social media sites and content aggregators to function, without being slapped with nuisance lawsuits for the content users posted, need an overhaul. A clear line needs to be drawn between those providers who offer the same terms to all, regardless of political slant, and those that essentially act to censor opinions that are legal, but disapproved for various specious reasons (or none at all).

The Z Man has a good explanation of the current state of affairs, and some suggestions on how to release the overbearing hand of the Tech Giants.

It should be Job 1 after the election (I'm assuming that Biden/Harris don't win).
