Marsha Blackburn Report: This Week From Washington – July 5th, 2020

 

ERA of Self Regulation is Over

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – What the digital mob chooses to attack changes with the news cycle. As we have seen, this heavily influences how Big Tech polices content on their platforms.

For years, tech companies have waged a very public war against platform users who speak out against the popular narrative, abusing the “Section 230” protections Congress created to protect growing tech firms and encourage innovation.

The dynamic between users and platforms has changed, though—and now, Congress must change the law that guides that dynamic.

Lamar Alexander: Remembering the legendary University of Tennessee player and coach, Johnny Majors

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – It’s important to remind ourselves of the difficulty we have as a country in dealing with racial discrimination. We’ve made so much progress over the years, but obviously we have a long way to go.

I think of my friend, South Carolina U.S. Senator Tim Scott, who is African American and who told me that he was stopped by police several times even when he was on the Charleston County Council for “being a black man in the wrong place.” We must redouble our efforts to change such attitudes and end racial discrimination.
