The White House has drafted an executive order for President Donald Trump’s signature that would instruct federal antitrust and law enforcement agencies to open investigations into the business practices of Alphabet Inc.’s Google, Facebook Inc. and other social media companies.
Two main issues – one is, for example, FB failing to protect data and the other is Twitter’s, for example, shadowbanning of conservative voices.
With the first, govt has you banged to rights anyway in their datastore – they have everything they would need. With the second, the whole system is banning conservative voices, not just the giants.
The danger in acting on Google etc. is that, though there does seem evidence of what they are doing, once the banning of ANY voices by govt starts, where does it end? Once you have to run anything past govt to say, even things anti-us, then it’s not much in the way of a free speech victory, no?
