“Out Loud”

Monterey County Weekly – March 14, 2024

In Assembly Bill 587, it is unconstitutional to include “disinformation” in that bill (“Free Speech,” March 7-13). If you will remember back in 2020, hundreds of people were getting censored, banned from social media, and even being jailed for spreading “disinformation,” some of which was later found to be true!

Looking back, it would be easy to find multiple instances of our own government guilty of spreading information that was false.

Freedom of speech is so important that our Founding Fathers put it before everything else. Once we start chipping away at our rights, we will slowly lose them.
