“I don’t want to amend it. I want to just keep it as it is… I think it’s basically a football for both parties to hold hostage in exchange for what they want, which is more favorable treatment from platforms with their speech preferences… The fact is Section 230 provides incentives for content moderation today. So all the objectives that Democrats have, I believe, with respect to wanting platforms to moderate content are actually encouraged by Section 230… The fact is if 230 went away, platforms would have a choice between being Disneyland, a very sanitized environment, or a wasteland to moderate nothing… We have a war between the parties over political speech online and Section 230 gets held as hostage. I don’t really think they’re genuine attempts to reform 230.”

– Chamber of Progress Founder/CEO Adam Kovacevich at an ITIF webinar discussing whether Congress should reform Section 230
