In the US a web site is not responsible for what user's post, it is not the publisher it is more like a utility like phone service. A phone company is not responsible for what people say over the phone. That was passed by congress to encourage innovation by protecting tech companies from lawsuits.

But if tech companies are going to censor content then they are acting like publishers not utilities and should not be protected by section 230.

Facebook is demonetizing the Christian, political satire page “The Babylon Bee” after they published an article satirizing Sen. Mazie Hirono’s comments during the Amy Coney Barrett hearings in a fictional depiction.

The Bee’s CEO Seth Dillon announced the demonetization on Tuesday in a tweet, claiming that the big tech company pulled down the article based on a “regurgitated joke from a Monty Python movie.”


“So after a manual review, Facebook says they stand by their decision to pull down this article and demonetize our page. I’m not kidding,” he wrote. “They say this article ‘incites violence.’ It’s literally a regurgitated joke from a Monty Python movie!”
