Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-Fla.) recently hammered down on Big Tech overreach. He signed into law a new bill aimed at keeping Big Tech companies from censoring free speech and banning people from their platforms.
“This is a big problem,” he asserted. “We don’t even need to get into the election interference from Silicon Valley.”
The bill, titled SB 7072, aims to safeguard Floridians from social media censorship and impose hefty fines on platforms who ban political candidates as a way to crack down on such forms of election interference.
“They shadowban people which creates partisan echo chambers” he mentioned. “They are some of the major reasons why this country is divided for doing what they’re doing.”
Under the new law, any platform which bans a political candidate will receive a daily fine of $250,000.
