Oval Office online order...

"President Trump, joined by United States Attorney General William Barr, signed an Executive Order on Preventing Online Censorship May 28, 2020"
Yesterday in the Oval Office, amongst other things, President Trump signed this Executive Order to fight online censorship by technology corporations, including social media platforms (Twitter, Facebook, YouTube...he's looking at you). Everyone I know has various examples but here is a list of many that was linked with this news.

Although this is a good start - and definitely addresses an overt wrong - I hope it doesn't morph into something more sinister.

Update: That said, could it be "Bluster", a warning? A "shot across the bows"? [LINK]
