When Twitter decided to add a "fact check" to one of President Trump's latest tweets (on the possibility of mail-in voting fraud), it opened up a huge debate that ended in the President promising to draft and enforce an executive order (EO) to "regulate" social media entities and the Internet.
Earlier, we reviewed the draft form of such executive order, finding it wanting in several respects: "Section 230 Executive Order! A Lawyer Reviews Trump's Plan (Draft) (VL237)" (https://youtu.be/tTThb2Y9Fh8)
Now we have the final version.
Once was good, but twice is even better...in Virtual Legality.
