Lee Smith: FaceBook, Google, and Twitter are Not Platforms But Publishers and Should, Therefore, Not Have the Special Protections for Neutral Platforms in the Communications Decency Act

His article was recently flagged by FaceBook as "spam," as so many articles written by conservative-leaning journalists are these days.

And he has some thoughts.



By "FN" he meant "FB," or FaceBook, of course.

Meanwhile, someone posted a clearly threatening meme on Twitter -- a picture of someone pointing a gun at a grieving Meghan McCain, with the caption "This one's for you" -- and it took more than a day of lobbying by her husband to convince Twitter to overrule its leftwing SJW low-level Censorship Squads and categorize it correctly as threatening.



That also just happened with Dana Loesch, of course.

Given that Twitter and FaceBook have a hair-trigger response to anything said by someone on the right, but permit leftwingers to threaten to kill people and their children as well, how can these billion dollar corporations claim that they are neutral platforms rather than biased publishers picking and choosing what appears on their media sites?

And how can they claim to the protections of s. 230 of the Communications Decency Act which only provides safe harbor for disinterested platforms, not interested-and-opinionated publishers?

Dana Loesch and Meghan McCain should have the right to sue Twitter for being a willing, knowing facilitator of threats and intentional emotional distress. They are choosing to allow threats against conservatives because they like such threats.

Therefore, they should not have the immunity a neutral platform does.

Don't expect any help from this from the Corporate Republican Political Class, however, as almost all of them are bought off and have already decided to sell your ass down the river to keep the Big Tech "lobbying" (bribe) money coming.

Meanwhile, the Corporate Owned NeverTrump, Inc. faction wonders why people actually support Trump:



Trump: Google, FaceBook, and Amazon in a "very antitrust situation."

President Donald Trump warned Google, Facebook, and Amazon that they are in a "very antitrust situation" in an interview Thursday, stopping short of saying he'd break them up.

...

Trump added that "conservatives have been treated very unfairly" by Google, which is owned by Alphabet. "I tell you there are some moments where we say, 'Wow that really is bad, what they’re doing.'"

The president has been stepping up his attacks on tech giants like Facebook, Google, Amazon, and Twitter the past few weeks for their censorship of conservatives, saying Aug. 20 that it's "very dangerous."
