Florida moves to protect online free speech (for politicians…):

Florida is on track to be the first state in the nation to punish social media companies that ban politicians like former President Donald Trump under a bill approved Thursday by the state’s Republican-led Legislature.

Gov. Ron DeSantis, a Republican and close Trump ally who called for the bill’s passage, is expected to sign the legislation into law, but the proposal appears destined to be challenged in court after a tech industry trade group called it a violation of the First Amendment speech rights of corporations.

Yes, Big Tech, tell us more about the “rights” of government-created artificial entities that don’t really exist. Here’s a fun term: disincorporation!
