Florida Aims to End Social Media Censorship (Guest: Jim Lakely)

June 3, 2021

Jim Lakely joins the Jeff Katz show to discuss how Florida’s new law is a victory against rampant social media censorship.

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis recently signed a bill into law that aims to protect social media users from being censored or de-platformed. Jim Lakely joins the Jeff Katz show to discuss how this law is a step in the right direction for protecting free speech online. Until now, big tech companies have had free rein to censor whomever they choose, with users having little to no recourse to fight back. The Florida law aims to change that.
