Anyone concerned about freedom of the press? Our current president holds that foreign terrorists hold constitutional rights. Shouldn’t US citizens also have their constitutional right to free speech guaranteed?
If this bill becomes law, free speech on the internet may still exist but it cannot be guaranteed.
