President Donald Trump will target Facebook and Twitter in an executive order on social media, according to a draft that appears to have leaked online.

The draft version of the order, which could still change, names Facebook, Google, and Twitter and targets a section of US law under which tech platforms largely aren't liable for what their users post and are fairly free to police content. Trump is expected to sign such an order on Thursday.

Specifically, the order would ask the Federal Communications Commission to examine those regulations under Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act and to look at whether platforms' actions to remove or alter users' content should mean they forgo these protections.

Any alteration could leave Facebook, Twitter, or other platforms open to more lawsuits, The Wall Street Journal noted.

I thought this news was incredibly apropos to the Right's reasoning for their exodus here on the DR.

RCADE is like Jack Dorsey and JEFFJ/ROC/SHEEPLE/ETC. are all rolled up into Trump.

#1 Those posters are no longer on this site. Constantly mentioning them on various threads is in poor taste, as they can't respond, IMHO.

And you know for a FACT that there are parallels here.

That's why I brought it up, it's ------- NEWSWORTHY and fits with the scenario that just played out here. As in, a prime example. And that could not have been relayed without calling out the subjects involved in that example.

You do know how logic works, yes?

You know RSTY several posters at one time thought you were somewhat reasonable and had the ability to be civil in exchanges. I offer my humble opinion and that was your response? Apparently you have changed over the last couple of years as have opinions of you have. Have a great day!

"And never underestimate me again" That's funny.
"They're not wrong". Not according to several long term posters on both sides whose opinions have changed over your responses of late.

Hey, Gracie, would you deem it presidential and acceptable for me to call you a Super Skank?

Provide evidence or it didn't happen.

She's done dude. Give it up.

BTW that makes me wonder if Gracie is going to whine about posts about Hillary since she's not a public figure anymore who can defend herself.

Doesn't matter dude. They support the Orange --------- but yet think it's we (us, libs, Dems, Dumbocrats ect) who have changed and are behaving irrationally completely independently of their own behavior.
