Media literacy requires that people not blindly rely on the internet for their news.

Is the first admendment protected on social media platforms like Twitter, Facebook, etc.

Yes, social media platforms are not publishers. They are not responsible for content, the poster is.

Does free speech protect libel and slander? Yes, when the person libeled and sladered is a public figure.

So, is President Trump and others able to tell lies and libel and slander people as they choose, yes.

That's why the internet has been called by legal media experts such as Ken White, "a sewer."

The internet should not be blindly depended on for any kind of facts and their interpretation.

Check your facts and delve into context for appropriate and legitimate interpretation.
