"Ads. Facebook ads russia. He chatted with folks. He went and found areas of agreement. He did some things that made some members of his party unhappy like getting some people out of prison some people that said hey. Republicans said this. These people are violent. They shouldn't be out. There's other people. These people are completely redeemed. They weren't violent to begin with their out and they spoke at the convention of the virtual convention. He gained that he gained hispanic votes. He gained votes with gay people. He gained votes the first incumbent to quote quote loose gaining votes. We know that story. Compare that to mitch. Mcconnell police just quick comparison in your mind mitch mcconnell. He's warning of gop. Death spiral criticizing the gop electoral college challenges. This is a template. This is a template statement. You can take this mitch mcconnell statement and apply it to anything which will undertake to prove this election and returned mirada gatien's From the losing side our democracy would enter de spiral. We'd never see the whole nation. Accept the election again. Mcconnell said i protecting our constitutional order requires respecting the limits of own power. It would be unfair wrong to disenfranchise american voters overrule the courts in states on this extraordinarily thin basis. I will vote to respect the people's decision and defend our system of government as we know it all right. Let's let's play a game. How many of you are seeing overturned the election with no evidence. How many of you were saying you know what just overturning just that's it. I don't care about the evidence i don't care about. Seeing the evidence argued in court. I don't care about seeing. Both sides discuss it now. Just overturn it. I don't care about the details any of you. I'm not were often accused of. Oh will the president said it's fraud so you think it's fraud. That's not the way. I operate. I don't know about you. I reached my determination on this by looking at data by looking at structured data appearing within raw data. That doesn't happen. And looking at the hockey stick data that replicated in a bunch of states at the same time after they shut down voting. I formed my own opinion about this. That's the way i operate. I use my skepticism and critical thinking skills and in skeptical analysis and pattern recognition but mcconnell is telling us waving his finger at us that we shouldn't just demand that we ignore the will of the people. Are you saying no mitch. Ignore the will of the people second part of his statement respect. His constitutional limits sweet agreed. What's respect those well. But mitch. For instance baseless charges in thin allegations the pennsylvania constitution says that the legislature gets to make election rules the drop boxes and the all mail in ballots stuff. That was as i understand it. Instituted by one human. The secretary of state that that's a violation mitch of the constitutional order. But i like. I like my violation better or constitution. The united states constitution says that the state legislatures are responsible for the rules for federal offices. Election rules for federal offices county election boards are not a state legislature of constitutional order. No no the constitution says that it's the state legislatures. But let's take the statement in reverse it around again. Apply this to russia. Did mitch mcconnell ever step out and say made to overturn this election of bread and trump on mir allegation from losing side. We'd enter desk bar. Would never she told asian again except or trust the institution of the fbi. No i don't recall that don't recall that at all isn't as part of our frustration is in this part of the swindle. Isn't this part of why we're pushing back so hard. Isn't this part of why there are patriots in dc die. Don't see them. Going and saying the vote mitch and this continued drumbeat that these courts have rejected. These claims the courts decided to not hear the claims. None of the courts wanted to touch this. And when you can't explain the happenstance of five states stopping they're counting at once and then all the miracles and blackbox activities that went on. You can't explain those. There's no trust this case. In point of dc versus offs. Mcconnell and his wife are fine. they're going to be fine. they've got millions upon millions of dollars in they're going to get millions and millions more and he's outed we know what he is in. Who is and this. Is you wanna talk about the dust. Spiral mitch the death. Spiral is we've watched you for many many years. Play us against ourselves. We've watched you manage the decline. We've watched you add to our debt. We've watched you stand limply. As we are all called racist as we are all called is called knuckle. Draggers is recalled bitter.

"Defense for claims arising from us. Generated content, and what that does is it allows platforms to rely on user content without fearing wall suits without fearing regulation. So if I were a yelp or a Facebook or Twitter that was starting out without section two thirty I'm not quite sure how I'd be able to operate in the same way in the same open collaborative way. Because and this is a lawyer speaking, I would be terrified of the constant threat of lawsuits that you would face an even if there wasn't much merit to lawsuits like defamation about someone's opinion, which clearly is not going to succeed. You would still have to go through the discovery process and our litigated, which is very costly. So section two thirty has really set the framework that platforms are able to allow us your content and one of the other motivations of two-thirty, which we can talk about was to set their own rules in deter. In what they believe is appropriate. Yeah. That's you know, when you go back and read John Perry Barlow's declaration of independence, cyberspace or whatever, you know. It's it's all about it's not about escaping morality. It's being in a place where you can create your own terms in your own society in her unrolls discuss a little bit, the so, you know, we have this thing, you know, the internet obviously predates the nineties, but and and kind of by the mid nineties, the worldwide web is burgeoning what what was the landscape like before the internet became kind of a dominant force in our lives or a regular presence. And you go through a bunch of the early kind of pre two thirty cases pre Communications Decency Act, which was part of the telecommunications act, which rewrote kind of a lot of laws about communication technology. What was going on in the eighties and the early nineties with with services like a pre internet services like prodigy? AOL and CompuServe. So there was a rule under the first amendment that goes back to the nineteen fifties involving bookstores that were being prosecuted for selling what was believed to be obscene books that the distributor of content could only be held liable, if the distributor knew or should have known of the illegal content. So if a bookstore had fifteen thousand books and most likely you're not gonna hold the bookstore owner liable so that we're pretty well through the nineteen eighties early nineties. And then we started have the services that shockingly. None of my students were around to remember CompuServe and prodigy river to earliest ones, and they took very different approaches. So CompuServe provided newsletters for all sorts of both one win two way types of communications media. And it basically did not do any moderation. Did not set any rules. Didn't have anyone looking at content prodigy on the other hand wanted to distinguish. Distinguish itself as a family friendly service. So it had moderators all these user content rules and both of those services were sued for defamation arising from third party content within a few years of each other in the early nineteen nineties and CompuServe's lawsuit was dismissed because it was found to be the distributor of content. Ended had no reason to know that this material was depending Tori, a prodigy, however was held to not be a distributor, and this was just one chord on Long Island in it actually as documented in the book was not really one of the best judges in the United States. He had a pretty bad track record. So I disagree with his conclusion, but he said that because prodigy took steps to edit an moderate content. It's held to be publisher. So it's held liable. Just as much as if prodigy made the statement itself, and that was that pulling off of the idea say if your newspaper, you've you published an article, and then you. Publish a letter to the editor where somebody says something to fam-, Tori, that the newspaper would be considered the publisher of that as opposed to, you know, enhance potentially liable. Right. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. So so prodigy was found to be more like a newspaper and less like new to stand. So for strictly liable just like a newspaper for the letters to the editor of the fallacy in that argument is that prodigy a newspapers letter to editor page runs maybe five or six letters day, and they screen them and every single one prodigy even back then had tens of thousands of user posts every day. And there was no way that they were screening everything if they found something or if they got a complaint, they would take down, but it was just pretty ridiculous to assume the prodigy could moderate every single bit of content, and then you get into with those two separate types of decisions. And you you create a situation. Where it makes sense either not to have comments at all. Or to just not say that, you know, if you're the the platform, you're not gonna do anything about it. Because if the minute that you actually start dipping into them. You're you you can be in trouble in a way that if you're CompuServe so site, we don't care. We don't even look at this stuff. You're in the clear. That's exactly right. So under that rule that the at least from those two courts, the the risk averse way to handle user content. Content would just be to take a hands off approach, and that's what really copy up attention congress. So. Yeah. And now talk about the two guys behind section two thirty and described a context a little bit. Because now we're talking about the mid nineties. It's clear the the internet is gonna be a thing. And it's it's really funny to be talking about this for some of us. I think yourself certainly myself. It's you know, this isn't the past. This is like, you know, yesterday or some it seems like it's shrouded in ancient myths of Avalon or something. But you have a Chris Cox and Ron Wyden. One is a conservative one is a one is a Republican one is democrat. You have a a congress, which this is just after Bill Clinton has been elected. And then there are midterm elections where the Republicans end up taking control of congress. It's a very fraught period. But you have these two characters who see something really special going on. And they want to carve out a space for for the kind of online were online economy online universe to grow. What what was going on there? And and how did they come up with two thirty. So it this was really in the spring and summer of nineteen ninety five and there was a lot going on that really led to this interesting confluence and events that caused section to thirty passed. So the first incident really occurred a few months before the prodigy ruling. And that was there's this was a Senator name Jim Nexen who was a conservative democrat from Nebraska, very concise. About family values and he wanted to heat. He proposed the Communications Decency Act, which would have face three words belong together. But yet. This. I it would have criminalized. The transmission of a lot of material online that was considered indecent. And it really had very wide sweep and let just there were a lot of civil liberties groups technology companies that were very afraid of this Bill that was moving through the Senate. It was getting attached this massive overhaul of Teluk telecom laws that would be passed the next year. So Cox and widen they saw this happening in the Senate. And they also saw the Stratton Oakmont is the prodigy decision. And they realized that there needed to be different path. And these were two members who had some technology expertise Cox, actually ran a translation service of provident newspaper. So he used CompuServe and prodigy and they both represented districts that have fairly heavy tech presence. So they realized that this new thing this new internet had a lot of potential, and I think really Cox was coming from the perspective of we don't want to regulate this. To death. He was the fifth ranking Republican in the house and widen also really even though his fairly liberal Democrat. He also believes that the tech sector works best when it's not so heavily regulated. So they propose they proposed. What became section two thirty which basically said those twenty-six words, providing this broad immunity, as well as a separate provision that says that you're not going to be held liable. If you take good faith steps to moderate or delete objectionable content. So those were both part of section two thirty and they attached their Bill to the house telecommunications overhaul. And so the Exxon Bill is in the Senate Koch minden is in the house, and then through the magic of conference committee as a compromise both of them end up getting attached to this telecommunications act that signed in February of nineteen ninety six and the media coverage was almost all it. It was really amazing. I spent a week just looking at media coverage of the telecom act, and almost all of it was about the regulation of local and long distance telephone rates in cable rates and things that nobody even knows about anymore. And it's funny rating the buck, you know, you're talking about MCI, and I've been these companies some of which still exists, but most of which don't. Yeah. And it was. Yeah. It's it's fascinating. Again, how quickly you know, you you take a world for granted that you know, these, and this is all the breakup of the bell telephone, you know, these are giant companies that will be with us forever. And they and they already don't, you know, they're forgotten completely exactly. And so most of the coverage was about that some of it was about the Communications Decency Act, the Exxon part that ended up getting a lot of attention primarily because they SEAL you and other civil liberties groups the day that the Bill was signed challenged in court. And then the next year the supreme court struck down the all Exxon's in DC. See proposals. So what was left of the Communications Decency? Act was section two thirty and even at that point in late ninety six early ninety seven people didn't really know what those twenty six words would mean. So discuss the early cases where section two thirty became know that was the focal point because people were bringing actions against a platforms or websites. How did it play out in the first couple of legal challenges or or know places where people were were having case court cases that revolve involved a two third. So the first judge to ever decide a section to thirty kiss was actually judged ES L S from Alexandria, who I think many people might recognize from the Manafort case, but he actually got the first case that would result in a section to thirty opinion. And that was a really tragic case involving someone named Ken Gerin who he was a. Middle-age photographer real estate agent living in Seattle with his parents and about six days after the Oklahoma City bombing. He starts getting all of us. Really angry calls starting maybe a few hour. Glenn too few permit, and what happened with someone in? We still don't know who posted these incredibly tasteless ads with jokes about the Oklahoma City bombing jokes about dead children on America Online with an it said ask for Ken call and they gave his phone number. And he took a lot of steps to ask AL to take down these heads and AOL dragged its feed to laid to take down one ad than another comeback up and wouldn't remove fast enough. This went on for about a month. Zahren ended up going on psychiatric medication. It was really an awful experience for him. So he sues AOL and AOL has the wisdom. To hire. Pack Rome is a really established great media lawyer in DC and what a lawyer. So this was in late ninety six ninety seven what a blur. Typically would do is raise a first amendment. But Koroma has heard about section two thirty. He says, let's give this a shop and judge judge Ellis accepts his argument. And I think the of people who figure the fourth circuit, which is the appellate court would reverse it. Because no one's ever interpreted this before other than judge Ellis, but to ails luck, the panel on the Frick shirk, which time was apparently conservative court had one one judge on the panel Jay Harvey Wilkinson who's a Reagan appointee. But also former newspaper editor, and he writes, this very eloquent lengthy the opinion where he basically says section to thirty is meant to promote free speech and prohibits of liability for on line services. And so that became really the law of the land. And that has been the case cited more than any other section to thirty case. And that's really a stab list

Include Bank and tax fraud now this is the first trial to come out of Robert Muller's investigation of Russian interference in the twenty sixteen election. And it's the first of two trials that will involve Manafort right okay so let's dig into this with. NPR's Carrie Johnson who has been covering this case from the very beginning. Hey Kerry Rachel just remind us what Paul Manafort is actually accused of sure Paul Manafort was. The Trump campaign chairman for a key part of two thousand sixteen. That includes the Republican national convention where Trump secured the nomination but these Bank and tax. Fraud charges against Paul Manafort go all the way back to two thousand five this prosecution revolves. Around lucrative lobbying work that Manafort performed for the government in Ukraine The pro Russia government there prosecutors say he earns something like sixty million dollars and failed. To report a lot of anonymous. Tax returns they say he failed to register his. Foreign Bank accounts and when that worked dried up in Ukraine they, say he. Borrowed against. The value of his real estate and allegedly misled. Banks, and lenders about all that I mean those are clearly bad things but I didn't hear you mentioned I mean, maybe you mentioned Russia wants because he was working on behalf, of. This. Government in Ukraine in the Russian government there but on the whole this is not substantive to Robert Muller's, probe, into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia is it gets complicated. Here one of the prosecutors in this case Greg Andress side pretrial it's unlikely government witness will actually utter the word Russia in this trial in. Fact most of the government's witness list includes accountants people familiar with Paul manafort's money and other people connected. To how he spent that money expect to hear about the purchase of expensive rugs New York Yankees tickets real-estate looming over this whole thing Rachel is whether Paul Manafort. Has information about Russia from his relationships with oligarchs has. Worked for the pro Russia government in Ukraine, or elsewhere and whether he is prepared to provide that information especial council investigators so far the answer has been. No he's, going to trial and Rudy, Giuliani Trump's lawyer says that Manafort. Does not, have any incriminating evidence on Donald Trump castle we'll see what happens yeah so I understand you are across the street. From the courthouse right, now there are I imagine people who are a lot of people are going to be wanting to get in that courthouse. Today it's going to be tightened kind, of a big seen. What do.
