Ajit Pai Says No To ‘Section 230’ Push


In October, a partisan furor erupted in Washington, D.C., as FCC Chairman Ajit Pai said he would initiate a “Section 230” rulemaking process, in the wake of a censorship vs. “fake news” firestorm involving Twitter, Facebook and the New York Post.

Frank Pallone Jr., the House Energy and Commerce Chairman, and Mike Doyle, the Communications and Technology Subcommittee Chairman, blasted Pai, calling it “a blatant attempt to help a flailing President Trump.”

Much has changed since then. The president’s days are numbered — and his ouster ahead of Inauguration Day is being discussed by many on Capitol Hill, the scene of a January 6 insurrection by Trump supporters.

As such, Pai is standing down. But, he believes a rule rewrite is needed, and is the job of Congress.
