Governor Abbott of Texas has joined Governor DeSantis of Florida in calling for state legislation to rein in anti-right bias in the social media platforms. Let’s hope they coordinate their efforts to enact the same legislation and then share it with the rest of the red states. I’d love to see these states sue the pants off Google, Facebook and Twitter among others. While they’re at it they might as well look at what Amazon is doing with banning books. They’ve got a whole lot of money that could really help a lot of state rainy day funds. You could build a lot of roads and bridges with what Bezos spends on the Washington Post every year.
So here’s hoping this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship between the red state governors and their legislatures. May a thousand law suits bloom and bleed the social media companies dry.
