Joe Biden is counting on Big Tech and the fake news media to censor stories about his family’s corrupt business dealings in Ukraine and China.

But Biden just got some bad news.

That’s because Clarence Thomas handed down one ruling that stopped Joe Biden in his tracks.

Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act allows online platforms to act as monopolies and free from liability as long as they engage in good faith content moderation.

But they cannot take editorial sides and act as a publisher.

This monopoly power allowed Twitter and Facebook to censor the New York Post’s story about emails obtained from a laptop allegedly belonging to Hunter Biden that supposedly detailed corrupt foreign business dealings that tied to Joe Biden.

Never before in American history had the public seen such blatant election interference as tech companies run by liberals pressed their thumbs down on the scale to benefit their favored candidate.

Both Twitter and Facebook decided it was “harmful” for Americans to read a well-reported story that the Biden campaign did not deny because if the public learned about Joe Biden’s connections to his son’s shady business dealings, they may not elect him President.

However, Big Tech’s day as an all-powerful monopoly could be coming to an end.

The Supreme Court recently rejected a challenge to Section 230 in the MalwareBytes Inc. v. Enigma Software Group case.

That wasn’t the big news.

In explaining why the court rejected the case, Justice Clarence Thomas argued that it was time for the court to find the right case to examine Section 230 and narrow Big Tech’s special carve-out.

“When Congress enacted the statute, most of today’s major Internet platforms did not exist. And in the 24 years since, we have never interpreted this provision. But many courts have construed the law broadly to confer sweeping immunity on some of the largest companies in the world,” Thomas argued.

Thomas also wrote that Section 230 granted social media companies too much power to take down content.

“But by construing §230(c)(1) to protect any decision to edit or remove content, Barnes v. Yahoo!, courts have curtailed the limits Congress placed on decisions to remove content, protects removal decisions because it would ‘swallo[w] the more specific immunity in (c)(2)’). With no limits on an Internet company’s discretion to take down material, §230 now apparently protects companies who racially discriminate in removing content,” Thomas added.

Ever since the 2016 election, fake news reporters pushed their ideological allies in Silicon Valley to crack down on free speech online because the left felt that the media lost the ability to control the flow of information to the voters.

2020 is seeing the culmination of that push as social media companies suppress negative stories about Joe Biden.

But Clarence Thomas is warning that those days are coming to an end.
