‘ Disney gets special “theme park” exception to Florida’s anti-tech bill ‘

‘ Both houses of Florida's Republican-controlled legislature have passed new legislation banning social media companies from deplatforming political candidates or censoring large journalistic organizations. Gov. Ron DeSantis has expressed support for the bill and is expected to sign it into law.

Tech companies could be fined as much as $250,000 per day if they deplatform a statewide political candidate in the state. Critics argue that the bill is likely to be struck down as unconstitutional. That seems especially likely because the bill is broad and vaguely worded.

But at least one company won't have to worry about the legislation: Disney. A last-minute amendment to the bill provides that it doesn't apply to a "company that owns and operates a theme park or entertainment complex"—like Disney World. ‘

Fineing FB, Twitter, etc is one thing. Getting those companies to pay up is another.

More amateurs who think it’s a good idea to pick fights with those who control ink and paper.

Normally, Republicans would be screaming about this being state-sponsored control of the media.

Look for FB/Twitter/WhatsApp/Goog to acquire a small, struggling amusement or theme park in the near future. No FL residency requirement on said theme park, correct?

CYBERWORLD - the virtual theme park you can visit without ever leaving home.

No need to deal with airlines or rental cars, no expensive hotels or restaurants. Put on CYBERWORLDS VR Goggles and believe yourself in sunny Florida.

Would this also protect hard left parties?

I really, really hope that big tech finds this unworkable and instead, just cuts off everyone in FL. It's the only way to be sure that FL's wishes are met.
