Jim Jordan Goes to the Mat With 60 Minutes and Taps Out

During Lesley Stahl’s “60 Minutes” segment aiming at online misinformation, Ohio Congressman Jim Jordan was pressed on whether the 2020 election was stolen.

Jim Jordan sat stunned in virtual silence as Stahl made her point that the American people have accepted the fact that the 2020 election was not stolen.

Echoing the position of the former RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel and other Republican voices, Jordan insisted he had concerns about the election, and so did other Americans.

Lesley Stahl: Most people don’t question the result. That’s all I’m saying. They don’t question whether–

Rep. Jim Jordan: Fair enough.

Lesley Stahl: Biden won or not. Right? Right? Most people don’t question

Silence, and then Jordan tapped out of the takedown.

Rep. Jim Jordan: Oh, OK. No–

Lesley Stahl: The outcome.

Jordan: Right.

As big tech firms wrestle with how to keep false and harmful information off their social networks, the Supreme Court is wrestling with whether platforms like Facebook and Twitter, now called X, have the right to decide what users can say on their sites. 

The dispute centers on a pair of laws passed in the red states of Florida and Texas over the question of First Amendment rights on the internet. The Supreme Court is considering whether the platforms are like newspapers, which have free speech rights to make their own editorial decisions, or if they’re more like telephone companies, that merely transmit everyone’s speech.
