Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act has been in the news quite a bit recently - ranging from President Trump's Executive Order because "Republicans feel Social Media Platforms totally silence conservatives voices" to efforts to revise or repeal the law.

However, more times than not, commentators and politicians do not actually understand what Section 230 is or does. 

In this episode, we take a deep dive into understanding what is Section 230 (the law that created the Internet), common misconceptions, and an analysis of some of the current proposals to revise Section 230 with Jess Miers.
