Big Tech Has No Constitutional Right to Censor

Social media stocks have taken a hit this year, but that’s nothing compared to the hit their companies took in court recently. “We reject the idea that corporations have a free-ranging First Amendment right to censor what people say,” the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals said in its Sept. 16 decision upholding Texas’ anti-censorship statute.

The legal battle over whether states can restrict such behavior could soon head to the Supreme Court, as Florida last week appealed an 11th Circuit ruling that struck down its anti-censorship law.
