Urge Lawmakers to Stop the Disastrous California Journalism Preservation Act
The California Journalism Preservation Act (CJPA) is a horrible bill that would:
- break the open internet
- make it harder for websites to remove hateful content
- provide giant giveaways to the same corporations and hedge funds that have destroyed local news
The bill would do nothing to support trustworthy local reporting and would instead pad the profits of massive conglomerates. To make matters worse, it would force social-media platforms to promote and pay for hate speech (yes, you read that right).
We need policymakers to take action to address the local-news crisis, but the CJPA is the wrong solution. Tell legislators to reject the California Journalism Preservation Act today.
