NEW: Robocalls are overwhelming hospitals and patients around the country, threatening a new public health crisis. My deep dive on the likes of Tufts Medical Center, which got *4,500 calls in 2 hours* one day last year.

What does "enforcement" mean in the context of Section 230? Isn't it just a provision the tech platforms can invoke to ward off lawsuits?

The moment when you need to present evidence that a hostile foreign power has attacked your allies is the moment when you realize it was a bad idea to have your spokespeople burn credibility over trivial BS that only mattered to the chief executive's ego.

Hong Kong protesters notch another win -- though how long they can hold off a determined Beijing is anyone's guess.

Dems on House Judiciary are moving closer to a full-scale overhaul of antitrust law to curb Big Tech's growing influence. But as its Trump probes also expand, experts think the committee won't have the resources for a deep dive on antitrust.🔒

The House Intelligence Committee's deepfake hearing is very quickly turning into yet another referendum on Section 230. Both Adam Schiff and Devin Nunes have centered their questions around whether tech platforms should be held liable for deepfakes.

I am with on this. If you don't want only millionaires to be in Congress, you have to treat it like a real job--and you have to treat members like professionals.

Beijing blacks out Hong Kong protests online. Definitely not surprising, but still worrying.

Literally lol'd at this (perhaps the first time I've ever laughed at a Cory Booker joke). Great little profile here by on the odd relationship between Booker and Jon Tester, two senators on opposite ends of the same party.

As repugnant as anything ISIS has done. Destroying a people's history is unforgivable. It will hurt badly, but I think we're approaching the point where the West will have to seriously consider curtailing its business relationship with Beijing.

It doesn't look like this line was in his prepared remarks, but the fact that he made it lends a bit more intensity to this effort. Regulations to promote tech competition is one thing - throwing out, or even just altering, the consumer welfare standard is a lot more ambitious.

In first hearing on tech antitrust, Chairman pledges a serious effort to open up laws that have been stagnant for decades. "Congress -- not the courts, agencies, or private companies -- enacted the antitrust laws," he said, calling the effort "long overdue."
