United States Supreme Court authorizes the White House to interfere to eliminate disinformation on networks

The U.S. Supreme Court ruled Wednesday that the White House and other federal agencies can continue to ask social media platforms to remove certain content that could lead to misinformation, a key decision for the country and the Joe Biden administration in this election year.

With six votes in favor and three against, The Supreme Court rejected the Republican-led effort to drastically limit this ability, dismissing the petition from the governments of Missouri and Louisiana.in addition to several network users, who filed a lawsuit accusing the Biden administration of violating the First Amendment (that of freedom of expression).

The relevance of the case, whose hearing was held in March, was notable, as it could have served to set the standards for freedom of expression on the Internet, given that it had to decide how far the federal government can go to combat controversial publications on social networks about topics such as covid-19 and the elections.

But rather than delve into the important First Amendment issues raised by the case, The court ruled that the state and social media users who challenged the Biden administration did not have standing to sue.

In the United States, there are no rules that specifically regulate the limits of freedom of expression on social networks. In the absence of this legislation, the Supreme Court is taking on an increasingly important role.
