"In practice, this executive order would mean that whichever political party is in power could dictate what speech is allowed on the Internet."

Here's all you need to know about that article.
According to CNN, which obtained a copy of the draft, the new rule......
No proof at all that any of it is true. Why would anyone believe there is ANY truth it without question or thought?

I can guarantee you that Donald Trump has wondered about how he can do this. He would love nothing better than to have dictator-like control over the news and the internet. Down deep, he envies people like Kim Jung Un and Putin.

Not just CNN:

Reason: "Trump's Social Media Executive Order Would Let Unelected Bureaucrats Police Online Speech"

6 Terrible New Tech Bills in Congress

It isn't just Trump. They ALL want to censor/control/restrict online speech.

This is the dangerous aspect of private tech companies taking charge of censoring the internet. When they do a horrible job of it, people become more accepting of the government stepping in to take over. How about nobody censoring the internet? Not private companies and not the government.

So what? They are a business and as any good Republican will tell you, the government has no business telling Google how to run its business. And if you don't like it, use some other product.

No way will that pass legal review. It instructs the FCC to monitor social media for political-correctness or risk losing liability waivers for content. SCOTUS has sided with extensive 1st Amendment protection and this would be over the line, I am sure. And it also is likely in violation of the 5th Amendment for due process since it administratively takes away a protected right without a hearing.
