California Bill to Create Ministry Of Truth To Censor Alternative Media

Quote:


This bill would require any person who operates a social media, as defined, Internet Web site with a physical presence in California to develop a strategic plan to verify news stories shared on its Web site. The bill would require the plan to include, among other things, a plan to mitigate the spread of false information through news stories, the utilization of fact-checkers to verify news stories, providing outreach to social media users, and placing a warning on a news story containing false information.

(a) Any person who operates a social media Internet Web site with physical presence in California shall develop a strategic plan to verify news stories shared on its Internet Web site.

(b) The strategic plan shall include, but is not limited to, all of the following:

(1) A plan to mitigate the spread of false information through news stories.

(2) The utilization of fact-checkers to verify news stories.

(3) Providing outreach to social media users regarding news stories containing false information.

(4) Placing a warning on a news story containing false information.

(c) As used in this section, “social media” means an electronic service or account, or electronic content, including, but not limited to, videos, still photographs, blogs, video blogs, podcasts, instant and text messages, email, online services or accounts, or Internet Web site profiles orlocations.


This bill would place the government of the state of California in a position of arbiter of truth and would allow them to censor any information that runs counter to the official narrative. This is especially dangerous for activists and dissenters, or anyone who finds themselves questioning authority or exposing corruption.

And from what I can learn about The Free Thought Project, they are exactly the type of alt-news site that has the most to fear.

An initiative to split California into three states has received enough signatures to qualify for the November ballot. Disgust with the amount of overreach by this states Liberal government is gaining momentum as more cities are refusing to abide by this states stand on illegal immigration.

Well it shouldn't take long for someone to file a first amendment laws suit and that bill will go the way of the DODO. Unless of course you're one of those extreme states right people that think the constitution ONLY applies to the federal government and that states can do what ever they please unless their own constitutions have similar language.

Ah, the Constitution does apply only to the Federal government. The only Constitutional laws that apply to the states are the rights specifically given to the Federal government by the states.
Amendment X.
The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states respectively, or to the people.

This goes along w/ what i (and the two of us in other threads) have been talking about. This bill, FOSTA just passed. This is the state trying to control the internet. They completely lost control of the naritive during the 2016 election and have seen how the legacy media no longer influences the population as it once did. This stuff is not good.

As for the states rights vs constitution argument i am not sure if that really applies here as what is the communist republic of callifornia going to do make their internet closed to the rest of the nation and the world? IMO this is just another example of extreme authoritarian government testing the waters in the most placated state in the union. Crazy shit flies there that wouldn't have a chance in the lowly "fly over states"

They are well on their way of stripping Californians of their second amendment rights.
