It Begins: California Senator Introduces Bill to Kill Free Speech, Requires State-Sanctioned Fact Checkers to Approve Online Content

first they banned for the "conspiracy theorist" and no one cared , but then "pro-guners", then the anti-homosexuals, then the hard right, then the hard left, then diamond and slik,... then they sent in the "fact checkers" on everyone...
Quote:

Richard Pan is a far left California state senator.
The bill is titled “SB1424 Internet: social media: false information: strategic plan.”
It targets social media based in California. But as you read the bill, you see it appears to define social media as any Internet blog, website, or communication.
SB1424 is brief. Read it:
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 or locations.
Getting the picture?

It’s a free speech killer.

Here's the actual bill...

While I agree the action is WAAAAY over the line, I see no "state-sanctioned" in the text...The headline is misleading, itself, which is ironic considering the bill...

Also, I see no penalties or fines...I have a feeling this is non-binding and unenforceable...

the headline writer should have tighten that up.

the law seems to say that the provider must "have a plan to" cenco... i mean... "fact check".
Not sure what fines or penalties might apply if they don't. -shut down the biz- is always a gov't favorite though.
but this may be a 1st step... or a testing the waters regulation.
