For the first time in history, you can do ngrams across all American (and Colonial!) case law -- pick a word or phrase and see how often it's been used in the law over time, including comparisons across different states. All thanks to scanning 44 million pages of 44,000 volumes.

When even is against 's ridiculous plan to strip companies from CDA 230 protections... you know it's bad.

Still parsing the bill. But as far as I can tell, it defines moderation in a way that even user-directed filtering—e.g., muting or blocking someone on Twitter on political grounds—is cause for the platform to lose its 230 protection.

Linda Fairstein, the now notorious Central Park 5 prosecutor, saw herself as a feminist crusader, avenging innocent victims, spending “her days thinking about vile & abominable acts” committed by people who were irredeemable, deserving only of punishment.

Ta-Nehisi Coates testifies slavery was "torture, rape, (and) child trafficking" and that it is not just about making amends but about deciding whether America can face it's complete history. Coates said of slavery and its impacts: “It was 150 years ago and it is right now."

“For a century after the Civil War, Black people were subjected to a relentless campaign of terror; a campaign that extended into the lifetime of Majority Leader McConnell.” - Ta-Nehisi Coates at hearing on reparations.

Look, if you want the government to determine whether or not deleting your “TRUMP IS A RACCOON” post from Twitter negatively impacted your “political viewpoint,” go nuts.

If I post a comment at InfoWars, InfoWars can delete my comment, and I cannot sue InfoWars for doing so. InfoWars does not need to be “politically neutral” to moderate content created by a third party (me).

A site literally won't let me opt out of third party tracking cookies unless I stop blocking third party tracking cookies

Browsing the European internet post-GDPR has been a trip. Also has really underlined the importance of how stringent any opt-out provision written into law must be.

Pandora obviously relies on an extremely complex web of copyright licenses -- compulsory and direct; musical composition and sound recording -- but this case claims it didn't secure the one it needed to show lyrics.
