From Fox News:

Shoshana Weissmann of the libertarian R Street Institute, which supports a robust reading of Section 230 to provide broad protections to tech companies, pushed back on Trump’s comments. Weissmann said the idea that tech companies “benefiting from a law prevents them from being private is asinine.”

“Government cannot wave a wand and say ‘you’re public now,'” she added. “The idea that this is a subsidy is also nowhere near the truth… And finally, government pressuring companies or companies taking cues from government entities also does not magically turn them into government actors.”

“This is a full misunderstanding of how the law works,” Weissmann said.
