    It's a whole thing over at Wikipedia now.
    Then escalate it to moderation and review.

    I bet you think left wing outlets aren't like that all though, right?

    If you aren't reading your news from Politico, is it worth reading?

    Do you think Twitter or Google would still be a thing if when they were just starting out Republicans could have demanded everyone stop doing business with them and the companies were so afraid of Republicans that they did just that? Of course not.

    Democrats have found a way to control speech, they just hide behind "private businesses" now.

    So important was free speech and access to free speech platforms to politicians back in the day that they forbid telecommunication companies from discriminating against anyone and forbid them from censoring anyone using their platform, in exchange for these limitations they protected telecommunication companies from lawsuits and criminal charges if someone used their service to plan a murder or something.

    Fast forward to the internet era and now congress is like "Eh, go ahead and discriminate, you can decide who can and cannot use your platform, you can censor free speech all you want, AND we'll even provide some protection from lawsuits."

    What happened here? Why are we suddenly okay with this? The biggest difference is Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, and Reddit are MUCH more powerful in terms of providing a free speech platform than telecommunication companies ever were.
    Parler banned leftist users. Didn't hear you crying about that.

    A buddy of mine that isn't a leftist by any means disputed one of the Qanon rumours and they booted him.

    PornHub doesn't moderate comments, so you can go post there too.
    Unrelated: For what it's worth, PornHub only took 9 days to get 50 million users IIRC.

    Sounds like you're in favor of regulation to stop the madness of Democrats censoring free speech.

    Lefty commentators, blogs and Podcasters all present the information relevant to their platform, if it's informed debate, then sure you'll see opposing viewpoints. If not, then their audience could care less about the view from across the ideological standpoint.

    All of the content hosting services you're lambasting are moderating hate speech and topics fomenting sedition. You don't like it, join another platform. Want to expand Constitutional provisions to private enterprise? Start pushing for an Article V convention to consider new amendments.

    Maybe it's against their religion to host those views.

    I only read Newsweek because it says "News" right there in the name so I know it's real news.
