Techdirt Podcast Episode 267: A Section 230 Roundtable

from the discussion-item dept

We’ve got one more cross-post from another podcast this week, and the subject is still the law that’s dominating the tech policy discourse: Section 230. Mike recently joined R Street’s Shoshana Weissmann on the Daily Tech News Show hosted by Tom Merritt, for a roundtable discussion about the all-important online liability shield and its many, many vital applications that people typically fail to consider. You can listen to the whole conversation on this week’s episode of the Techdirt Podcast.

I’m so glad that Mike sat down with right-wing Federalist Society member, ass-kisser of Ajit Pai, and hater of Net Neutrality Shoshana Weissmann on this show. The lukewarm pro-corporate diarrhea that spewed out of her mouth over all that time was quite hilarious in how fucking moronic and ignorant it was.

I look forward to a future Techdirt Podcast where she and Mike piss and moan about the Biden FTC breaking up Big Tech like it deserves.

The lukewarm pro-corporate diarrhea about why Net Neutrality is bad, I mean. She’s spewed plenty of other lukewarm pro-corporate shit out her mouth, having also worked for the GOP rag The Weekly Standard, but the NN stuff is where it was most hilarious. I look forward to seeing her and her best friend Ajit flounder and sputter as Rosenworcel and Co. reinstate Title II.

Re: Re: Re: Re:

Karl Bode uses the word "Bullshit" a whole lot in his article titles when he takes telecoms to task. Is pointing out that one of the participants on this podcast is a shit-spewer all that wrong?

It’s pretty hypocritical of her to support Section 230 while she also supported Ajit Pai’s facts-optional repeal of Net Neutrality, that repeal giving ISPs the freedom to block, throttle, and make special deals as they wish. Section 230 protects free expression online, while repealing Title II allows ISPs to restrict people’s choices (or reward others with faster speeds) for profit whenever they see fit.
