Ron DeSantis’s (R-FL) proposed regulatory response to political censorship and manipulation of access to information the world’s largest technology companies have deployed. Paxton replied, “We definitely are looking at [DeSantis’s proposal]. We’re trying to encourage our legislature to do something similar [in Texas], because I feel like [Big Tech] have had exemption from liability that they they shouldn’t have had, especially being in the monopolistic position they are in.” “Our focus is on lawsuits,” Paxton continued. “We’ve sued Google for … [Read more...] about Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton: We Think Our Antitrust Lawsuit Against Google Will Succeed
