Amy Klobuchar introduces bill to make tech companies liable if their users post COVID misinformation and they fail to take it down

Internet platforms such as Facebook and Google will be required to take down vaccine misinformation under proposals announced on Thursday by two Democrat senators.

Amy Klobuchar, senator for Minnesota, and New Mexico's Ben Ray Lujan's bill will add to the stack of legislation going after Section 230 - a law that protects tech companies from being sued over content posted by users.

If the internet platforms do not take down health and vaccine-related misinformation during public health emergencies, they would be held liable for that failure.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
