LAST POST OF THE DAY

I know these guys don’t believe me, but it’s got to be true, because I’m going to

bed soon:

I just need to ask someone if the following from Daily Kos is true.

 Fifth Circuit today published an opinion today which ignores many long years of traditional interpretations of the First Amendment. The decision essentially says that large social media platforms (of 50 million monthly active users or more) do not have the right to enforce terms of service, such as prohibitions against advocating violence, and promoting hate speech. From <https://www.dailykos.com/stories/2022/9/18/2123639/-Fifth-Circuit-rewrites-First-Amendment?detail=emaildkbow&pm_source=DKRE&pm_medium=email

Today we reject the idea that corporations have a freewheeling First
Amendment right to censor what people say. Because the district court held
otherwise, we reverse its injunction and remand for further proceedings.

Glad I looked further for update:  It was true, but since has been stayed (or over-ruled?),  but the law’s status escapes me now.  (Unsurre where save button is on “N”   Can you help?  Pretty important, re Trump’s being barred as well as the platform’s keeping threats and hate at bay.

CLARIFICATION WELCOMED IN COMMENTS.

Goodnight
