Yet Apple, #BigTech + those funded by #BigPharma continue to turn a blind eye to the children who have been injured by dangerous mRNA shots. 🤔

Philanthropy will never be an adequate substitute for an effective tax system where billionaires pay their fair share and democratically elected governments — not billionaires — make decisions about investment priorities.

SUPREME COURT
Published September 19, 2022 12:39pm EDT
Federal Court rules Big Tech has no 'freewheeling First Amendment right to censor'

Decision upholds Texas law that limited the right of social media companies to squash opinions

NEW: You can now listen to Fox News articles!

A federal appeals court upheld a Texas law on Friday that seeks to curb censorship by social media platforms. The ruling, a major victory for Republicans who charge companies like Twitter and Facebook are limiting free speech, is a step in a major legal battle that could end up at the Supreme Court.

The lawsuit is challenging HB 20, a Texas bill signed into law by Gov. Greg Abbott that regulates social media platforms with more than 50 million monthly users, which includes Google, Facebook and Twitter, and says they cannot censor or limit users’ speech based on viewpoint expression.

In his opinion, Federal Judge Andrew S. Oldham of the Fifth Circuit said the platforms argued for "a rather odd inversion of the First Amendment" that "buried somewhere in the person’s enumerated right to free speech lies a corporation’s unenumerated right to muzzle speech."

"Today we reject the idea that corporations have a freewheeling First Amendment right to censor what people say," Judge Oldham continued.

NetChoice, a nonprofit group representing Meta in the challenge against the Texas law, said in a statement they are "disappointed" with the decision. "We remain convinced that when the U.S. Supreme Court hears one of our cases, it will uphold the First Amendment rights of websites, platforms, and apps."

Friday’s ruling created what is known as a "circuit split," since the eleventh circuit struck down a similar social media law in Florida. A circuit split generally increases the likelihood of the Supreme Court taking up a case.
