Enligt Politico så förbereder Trump-administrationen en exekutiv order där den amerikanska myndigheten FCC ska användas för att kontrollera sociala medier, Twitter, Facebook med flera. Detta sedan Trump flera gånger anklagat sociala medier för att censurera och missgynna konservativa.

Trump har inte protesterat några bevis eller underlag på hur konservativa skulle missgynnas, inte utöver anklagelser som han själv publicerat i inlägg på Twitter.

The White House is circulating drafts of a proposed executive order that would address allegations of anti-conservative bias by social media companies, according to a White House official and two other people familiar with the matter — a month after President Donald Trump pledged to explore ”all regulatory and legislative solutions” on the issue.

None of the three would describe the contents of the order, which one person cautioned has already taken many different forms and remains in flux. But its existence, and the deliberations surrounding it, are evidence that the administration is taking a serious look at wielding the federal government’s power against Silicon Valley.


Liberal kloak

I ett anonymt uttalande så liknas Twitter vid en liberal kloak.

“If the internet is going to be presented as this egalitarian platform and most of Twitter is liberal cesspools of venom, then at least the president wants some fairness in the system,” the White House official said. “But look, we also think that social media plays a vital role. They have a vital role and an increasing responsibility to the culture that has helped make them so profitable and so prominent.”
