Trump's Executive Order [EO] is mostly what I predicted, but longer and more deranged and paranoid, at least in the preamble which reads a bit like a copy-edited version of his Twitter account.

The meat of it is essentially an attack on the Communications Decency Act § 230. It instructs Wilbur Ross and William Barr to petition the FCC to "clarify" § 230 in accordance with Trump's understanding.

Trump is basically asking the FCC (and looking forward, the courts) to begin treating social media companies like public utilities with respect to content, so that they're left liable for any "editorial" decisions they make.
