We thought that S.673, the Journalism Competition and Preservation Act was dead. It is an egregious bill that lets Big Media form a cartel to beat up on Big Tech for a share of the income. It specifically gives them a free pass on being held accountable to existing Anti-Trust Laws already on the books to protect us from exactly this kind of cartel. Plus, the First Amendment clearly warns Congress to keeps its hands OFF of Free Speech - "Congress shall make no law respecting..."
Sen. Ted Cruz, a member of the Judiciary Committee where S.673 has been stuck all year, has apparently caved to the Democrat sponsor of the bill, allowing it to pass out of the Judiciary, putting it up for a full vote on the Senate floor.
Take action today by going to the CFFSAction website and send a letter to your Senator telling them to vote "NO!"
