"The White House is stepping up its scrutiny of social media companies. The Trump administration has drafted an executive order that asks the Federal Communications Commission and Federal Trade Commission to take major roles in policing tech giants over alleged censorship on their platforms, according to a report Friday from CNN.

The proposal, titled Protecting Americans from Online Censorship, would enlist the FCC to develop new regulations for social media sites over how they could remove or suppress content, the CNN report said. The FTC would then use those policies in any probes into those companies.

Facebook, Twitter, Google, the FCC and the FTC declined to comment. The White House didn't return a request for comment..."

They don’t like it when Democrats do those things. Republicans consider themselves above all laws and principles that they zealously apply to others. Total Hypocrites

So the US government would be the police for the content of all social media and search engines used worldwide? [huh]

I can't see this happening.
