Twitter’s double-standard? Roger Stone threatens Twitter over suspension
Anyone who calls into question the value of the work done by Assange or Snowden truly is a worthless piece of human excrement. Watch the video to see a few such specimens.

'Twitter said I was bot': US blogger banned for being 'Russian troll'
Twitter squelching free speech. Not that Twitter has much credibility, but it does seem that they have discriminated against an individual in this case, thus violating her civil rights.

'Reasonable answers to unreasonable questions' – ex-US diplomat on 'Russian meddling' hearings
This really is McCarthyism 2.0. These hearings are very much reminiscent of the McCarthy Hearings which took place during the 1950s. The similarity is extremely eerie.

MSNBC insists they aren't an echo chamber in new promo
Self-censoring or selecting news sources which insulate from alternative points of view is a form of thought control which is voluntary. That's what I like about RT. It provides news from an outside perspective.

Efforts to combat fake news aren’t working, Facebook admits
It sounds to me like Facebook is looking for more effective ways of suppressing messages which counter its political agenda, while at the same time avoiding a backlash and thereby inadvertently promoting the messages they want to suppress. Quite a predicament for Facebook. It might be better if they just took a hands off approach and just let users decide for themselves what they want to view! What a concept!
