State legislators in the Democrat stronghold of New York are pushing a bill that would allow lawsuits to be brought against tech companies that spread so-called misinformation.
The bill would allow the New York attorney general, city corporations, as well as private citizens to sue tech companies that “knowingly or recklessly” promote information that “endangers the health or safety of the public,” a category that, according to Democrat state senator, would encompass “hate speech” as well as disinformation.

“We need real world solutions to the growing problems of online disinformation and hate speech. Throwing your hands up and saying nothing can be done isn’t sufficient. People’s lives are endangered everyday and nobody’s being held accountable,” said Hoylman.
Legal experts contacted by the New York Post argue that Hoylman’s bill is unlikely to stand up in court.
