California Governor Jerry Brown vetoed a bill Thursday, SB 1424, that would have created a state advisory group to study the problem of “fake news” and make recommendations for intervening in social media to deal with it. As Breitbart News reported in April, the original bill was far more aggressive: “The bill, filed quietly in late February as SB 1424, requires all California-based websites to develop a plan to fight ‘fake news,’ to use ‘fact-checkers,’ and to warn readers — including via social media — of ‘false information.’”
The final version was significantly watered down. Still, Brown vetoed it as “unnecessary.” https://www.breitbart.com/california/…

“The notion that Congress can change the meaning given a constitutional provision by the Court is subversive of the function of judicial review; and it is not the less so because the Court promises to allow it only when the Constitution is moved to the left.” — Robert Bork
The top executives of the seven largest American tobacco companies testified in Congress in 1994 that they did not believe that cigarettes were addictive, but that they would rather their own children did not smoke. That’s called lying under oath.
