Section 230 supporters turn on it, its critics rely on it. Up is down, black is white in the crazy world of US law

After 24 years, changing one's mind?

"But of course it wouldn’t be a politician interview if there wasn’t an enormous dose of hypocrisy and irony and in this case it’s the fact that Biden voted for Section 230 in 1995. It passed the Senate 81-18."

In 1995, I'd have leaned in favor of it as well. In 2019, with a very different situation and considerably more knowledge of the consequences, I'd at least lean against it.

Someone famous (don't remember who) said, when accused of "hypocrisy" for changing his mind, something vaguely resembling the following :

"When the facts change (or my understanding/knowledge of the facts changes), I change my mind. What do you do, sir?"
