senator Lindsey Graham says he will soon unveil legislation to form a bipartisan Digital Regulatory Commission to deal with abuses of power and free speech at Apple and the rest of Big Tech.
he has announced an intention to produce legislation that would require social media to get a license to operate.
Social media platforms are not licensed and “you can’t sue them,” Graham said, noting “if you drive a car, you need a license, if you sell real estate, you need a license.”
“[Big Tech], you can’t sue these people because [of] section 230 and there’s no regulatory scheme that works,” Sen. Graham said in a Fox News interview. “So I’m going to unveil a digital Regulatory Commission to deal with social media companies like Apple and Twitter and Google.”
“We need some regulatory environment to control the abuses of power here,” he continued. “So I’m going to do that with Elizabeth Warren. Social media is out of control [and it needs] to be regulated in some fashion.”
