Biden says Facebook is spreading falsehoods, should be responsible for content

Vice President Joe Biden, Democratic candidate for president said in a New York Times interview that Facebook is knowingly distributing false information about him. Currently, Facebook is protected from libel suits by Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act. Biden called for repeal of it so that Facebook and other internet companies would be responsible for the content on their sites.

"The 1996 law is considered one of the cornerstones of the modern internet. It positions tech companies like Facebook and Google that share information online as distributors as opposed to publishers, in effect protecting them from potential libel suits." im actually kind of in agreeance on this one, i was skeptical at first under the presumption that he would suggest someone else moderate them on their behalf, but really any platform that holds an obvious bias and doesnt provide equal treatment to all content deserves to be branded a publisher and held accountable for promoting their own opinions over distributing fairly
