"Big Tech Censorship"

I guess the right has settled on "Big Tech Censorship" as today's rallying-cry issue...which just leaves me shaking my head.

As an issue, it's ridiculous. Is the GOP really trying to convince people, in the wake of an insurrection against the United States Congress launched by people who believed the transparently stupid lie that the election was somehow stolen by some shadow conspiracy (a conspiracy those decrying it couldn't prove a word of in court!), that the solution is even less control over the Internet so the vultures spouting these lies can sprout even more of it?

That's a winning issue, there. Because that's just what America needs: more crazy.

Also, striking down Section 230 is about the last thing you want if you're in favor of more freedom to freely organize sedition and advocate violence, because it removes the "we're platform and NOT actual publishers" protection that keep people from going legally going after the hosting platforms for what its users - even if they are barbarian heathens plotting the overthrow of the US government - may post on it. Wipe that and the Dems are free to regulate even more. So...is there some 3-D chess plan here I'm not in on?

The section 230 thing strikes me as self fulfilling prophecy

If the companies are liable, they’ll become more not less strict. This will feed the narrative and foment more opposition against “them”

I was reading this proposal called "The Santa Clara Principles On Transparency and Accountability in Content Moderation"...it actually suggests what seems like a fairly common-sense foundation for content moderation...a framework for how stuff should be zapped, and how those zappages and bannings need to be made public record so people understand the rules and process.

Right now we're just making it up as we go along, ad hoc and piecemeal. This proposal seems like a good first step for changing that because above all else stuff needs to be aboveboard...and as they say, secrecy is the beginning of tyranny. If you're going to zap, show why, and show consistency.

I think it's a matter of requiring them to stand on

one side of the fence or the other. They want 230 protections from the thing they say they are not a part of.

If you are a provider, you are accountable. Or you can stop censoring. One or the other. I fully understand that if 230 is gone they will cencor even more. Fine. They're doing it anyway. Make them accountable. That's all that's about.

If you say, "Well, they'll just censor more", I'm happy just having that truth on the table. So, out goes 230.

I don't know about that, but the outlets think 230

is a big deal. Taking it away will fundamentally change what they do and who they are. They have shown their bias, so as far as I am concerned, yank it. To want both, to censor and have 230, is extremist. They are asking to be a state run and protected news organization. Is that what you want?

quit crying softie, big tech is not censoring Donald, he abused his privilege to use some apps, so he no longer has those privileges, if you go into a bar and start talking crap and cause trouble in such a manner that most of the patrons (71%) want you kicked out, then eventually the bouncer is gonna kick you out, in that case nobody impacted your freedom of speech, but you lost your privilege cuz you're a dumba$$.
