From Breitbart, "Nancy Pelosi: 'I Lost'; Big Tech Legal Immunity Remains in USMCA":
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said during a press conference Tuesday that she "lost" her fight to remove a provision granting big tech companies expanded immunity in the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA). Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Rep. Paul Gosar (R-AZ) told Breitbart News that they still have significant reservations over the immunity's inclusion in the trade deal.As Breitbart reported in October: "The law allows tech companies to censor any content they consider 'objectionable' or 'harmful.' This is similar to Section 230, but broader, because unlike Section 230, USMCA offers no definition of what 'objectionable' content might be, giving tech platforms broad leeway to interpret the law as they see fit."
During a press conference on Tuesday, Pelosi announced their compromise with the United States Trade Representative (USTR) Robert Lighthizer on the USMCA, admitting that the big tech provision will remain in the trade agreement.No doubt she fought tooth and nail to remove it!
[Senator Ted] Cruz said that “enshrining” big tech’s legal immunity could force lawmakers to “either abandon efforts to hold big tech companies accountable, or revise Section 230 and put the United States in breach.”WATCH:

From The Hill:
The inclusion of the protections is a major win for tech interest groups, many of which released laudatory statements Tuesday.Republicans won't lift a finger to secure our free speech rights online but they will ensure Big Tech's right to censor and undermine Americans' right to criticize Israel!
Trump was right when he said we had a "crooked system" -- unfortunately it appears he has been broken by it.
