230 needs to go to prevent socially irresponsible media (Farcebook, Twatter, etc.) from promoting the kind of false information that got this clown elected in the first place.
should probably be done about socially irresponsible media, and I don't currently have an answer as to what that could/should be, but dropping Section 230 definitely
isn't it. That would dramatically alter a large part of the internet as we know it, and not for the better. It's basically the online version of the US First Amendment (an over-simplification). Without it, many sites, especially smaller ones like Blues, would most likely have to prevent any kind of user forum or comments for fear of violating the Communications Decency Act and getting into a lot of expensive trouble. But that would also include user generated/uploaded media as well (images/video/etc).Here's more info that explains it better than I could
