Turley To Moderate Panel On Section 230 and Internet Censorship

This afternoon, I have the pleasure of moderating an outstanding panel as part of the Federal Bar Association conference.  The panel is entitled Governing the Internet and the Future of Section 230 Continuing Legal Education on the Constitution and will be held virtually on Wednesday, March 17, 2021 12:00 p.m. EDT. Joining on the panel will be Carrie Goldberg, C.A. Goldberg (Victims’ Rights Law Firm); Philip Hamburger (Maurice and Hilda Friedman Professor of Law, Columbia Law School); and  Samir Jain (Center for Democracy and Technology, Director of Policy).

Section 230 of the Communication Decency Act (47 U.S.C. § 230) is much in the news as online companies, including social-media platforms, engaged in expanding “content modification” or private censorship. I have testified and written on this trend from a free speech perspective.  As I previously stated, I remain an “Internet Originalist” and oppose such censorship.

This panel offers a wide array of experience and viewpoints on the subject.

  1. When you people make your ridiculous proposals for more and evermore taxation and regulation, please cite the Constitution wherein a legal basis for each may be discovered.

    Congress has the power to tax ONLY for “…general Welfare…,” omitting and, thereby, excluding any power to tax for individual welfare, specific and particular welfare, charity or redistribution of wealth.

    Congress has the power to regulate ONLY the value of money, the flow of commerce among states, tribes and foreign nations, and land and naval Forces.

    Article 1, Section 8

    The Congress shall have Power To lay and collect Taxes,…to…provide for the…general Welfare of the United States;…

    To regulate Commerce with foreign Nations, and among the several states, and with the Indian Tribes;…

    To make Rules for the Government and Regulation of the land and naval Forces;…

  2. Buster Cherry was a guy from Philadelphia. He had an affair with a certain female Senator. She wants to pass “The Filabuster”.

  3. Turley owes the victims of the Atlanta hate crime shooting a big public apology. As Turley promotes and defends hate speech in a morbid manner equating hate speech to free speech the ultimate end is mass murder hate crime. The American People have had enough of republican hate speech and those sleazy lawyers who defend it. American vigilantes UNITE against Turley and his godless ilk and direct your wrath towards those responsible!


    1. Your irrational rush to “cause/effect” is typical of those who wish to control the speech of others. And you will, no doubt, be the authority on what exactly is “hate speech” as opposed to “opinion difference”, and create a nation of fearful, paranoid idiots. Finally, as your solution to violence, in a typically leftist rant, you scream for “vigilantes” to “UNITE” and “direct your wrath” towards Turley. If somethings befalls Turley, would we then bring our wrath upon you? So it goes, so it goes. Before the facts are even in…as though a first run, breathless newsbreaking account from AJC is likely to explain everything. Sounds to me like you would only allow WAPO stories or NYT stories that lie, too. (Quiet “corrections” months later, after the damage is done.) Oh, remember what the press did to Richard Jewell?

  4. Well, to be sure it will be a quick one for Turley, liberals…BAD….right-wing….GOOD…. Trump speech…THE BEST EVER BIGLY.

  5. Does the ABA even matter anymore? I recall that they didn’t step in to provide guidance or discipline for those demented and perverted Lincoln Project attorneys doxing those attorneys working for Trump.

    1. Attorneys were not doxxed. Attorneys have to put their names on paperwork and they are a matter of court record, and they do not hide out from the public view. That’s ridiculous you think someone’s attorney could represent their client in secret.

  6. The Pope might be gay. But he won’t bless gay couples. Catholics need to count their “blessings”. A Cat O Lick is someone who likes cats. At the Korean border the Pope said: “Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition.”
    Do not censor him.

  7. I’m a First Amendment “textualist”. I wish to say things on this blog without being deleted. But not use “cuss words”. I’ve decided not to refer to individuals as “Trumpsters”. Piglatin is ok. Trump was an itShayhead.

    1. Trump got things done that the people wanted done. Fewer foreign war engagements, stronger borders, lower taxes, a chance for smaller businesses to rise out of poverty, minority rights…yes, that’s correct…
      Biden (well, his “handlers”) currently runs roughshod over the will of the people. Oh, he’s quieter than Trump. Hides in the dark. Our borders are overrun, we’re landing troops in Syria, allowing China to bully Hong Kong and Taiwan, mortgaging the future of our children with crushing debt, and making our Capitol look like a third world dictator had just been elected, and they worried people might not “respect” the steal.
