  • Where are the FAT MOUTH PUNKS who have gotten rich thanks to “talk radio” and conservatism? Why are Limbaugh, Beck, Savage,etc,etc not MAN enough to file law suits? Why are they not filing Class Action lawsuits in defense of the Freedom that they have made so much money off? God knows they have piled up enough RICHES. All they care about is THEIR MONEY and shilling ghost written PABLUM books.
    These PUBLICLY TRADED Corporations are violating OUR Constitutional Rights and their Boards of Directors should be Criminally Prosecuted.
    They advertize themselves as PUBLIC SOCIAL MEDIA and then violate Your Civil RIght of Free .Speech
    FACEBOOK, TWITTER, YOUTUBE, REDDIT, GOOGLE are PLACES OF PUBLIC GATHERING, “SOCIAL Media”, and ADVERTISE themselves as PUBLIC places.. They are also PUBLICLY TRADED CORPORATIONS, listed on the New york Stock exchange. File complaints with the SEC, and every “Human Rights” agency. File complaints with the NYSE for Bigotry and Discrimination.
    FACEBOOK is a PUBLIC SPACE therefore it has no right or legal option to censor participants. FACEBOOK is a PUBLICLY TRADED company, NOT a “private entity” and it solicits PUBLIC memberships.
    the FCC removed the telecommunication companies from the Net Neutrality laws and they are to be treated as Internet companies, rather than like regulated phone service companies.So as with ALL companies they cannot DISCRIMINATE.
    They advertise themselves as “Social Media & Public Spaces” so everything that is covered under the First Amendment can be posted there. ….. these “Social Media” can & should also be sued for violating People’s 1st Amendment RIGHTS to speak freely in PUBLIC SPACES.
    giant tech firms that are publically traded that take government subsidies are not private. They should have to follow the same rules that all government contractors have to follow.
    Facebook, Youtube, Twitter, etc. engaging in politically motivated censorship is like your meter reader shutting off your electricity because you have a Trump sign on your lawn. These social media have become like public utilities and therefore have no right to engage in political censorship. It is way past time to impose common carrier status on social media. Just like the phone company cannot censor your conversations there, social media should not be allowed to interfere with content there. Social media is the modern day phone company.
    “It is way past time to impose common carrier status on social media.”
    Meanwhile, Ajit Pai of the FCC has disallowed common carrier status for ISPs and, moreover, has allowed them to censor content, block websites, raise prices for everyone, and wage class war by using an excellent standard of speed and service for the rich and an inferior one (slow speed and service) for the non-rich.
    “Social media is the modern day phone company.” – and also a potent means of grassroots organization. By censoring one side they are DENYING the CIVIL RIGHT to organize and associate.
    They are violating YOUR CIVIL RIGHTS by denying you the means of communication.
