Trump administration petitions FCC on social media content rules

WASHINGTON, July 27 (Reuters) - The Trump administration petitioned the Federal Communications Commision on Monday to clarify regulations on the extent to which federal law provides protection for social media's content moderation decisions.

In late May, U.S. President Donald Trump directed a Commerce Department agency to file the petition within 60 days.

FCC spokesman Brian Hart said the agency "will carefully review the petition." (Reporting by David Shepardson; Editing by Sandra Maler)
