Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton says that the best way to stop censorship is to make sure that the government can't contact social media platforms and encourage or work with them to censor people. 

“We can ban the government from asking Big Tech companies to take stuff down,” Fitton said on Tuesday's edition of the “Just the News, No Noise” TV show. “We don't even have to debate changing the law or how Big Tech companies operate. Just stop the government from censoring us.”

Fitton said that something Congress can do in terms of legislating is working on improving Section 230, which states that “No provider or user of an interactive computer service shall be treated as the publisher or speaker of any information provided by another information content provider.”
