Again, without having read the bill(s) proposed, I don’t know exactly what’s in it, and the devil is always in the details of how it will be enforced. I do think we need legislation to make companies making billions of dollars accountable for what they publish and profit from. I honestly have never been able to figure out why Facebook is not accountable for their content, but The New York Times is. If the New York Times published my book, I can sue, and win big. If it shows up on Facebook, we just shrug and say: “oh well, he probably wrote it so it would attract commentary.”
