Jesse Gibson promises to go after social media companies as attorney general – Arkansas Times
























Jesse Gibson, the Democratic candidate for attorney general, has issued a campaign promise today — to go after Facebook and others to stop them from profiting from the spread of misinformation, particularly about COVID-19.

The misinformation contributes — it is abundantly clear — to resistance to vaccinations and masks and also lines up people for quackery.

He promises to take companies to court. This sounds easier than it likely will be. But with right-wing sources dominating Facebook posts, I’m not looking for the likes of Tim Griffin, one of the Republican candidates for AG, to go after Facebook for “profiting from lies.”
