    The social media sites obtained the non-publisher status because it is unfair for the platform to be held legally liable for a member’s false or misleading statement or propaganda. As with all rights, the user of free speech should be responsible for the speech they freely use and that includes possible legal action if they knowingly and with intent chose to post a false statement. The social media sites do have a responsibility to provide aids in truth seeking when their platform algorithm notifies them of a false or misleading post especially when in the form of a meme, advertisement, or politically oriented post. Trump is not protecting free speech he is trying to limit the freedom of the platform to correct false speech.
