They're at it again, deciding what you can and can't see! They block info which disagrees with their agenda and promote info which furthers their goals. Should be totally illegal to do anything of the kind.... but apparently they are working hard to make the USA more like China.

This is long overdue! Twitter, YouTube, Fakebook and the other less significant social media platforms have had the best of both worlds for far too long. On the one hand, they are allowed to curate content, but on the other hand they are protected from being fully responsible for what appears on their platforms. They have abused this privilege for far too long through the use of various techniques including shadow-banning, deletion of content, demonitization of content, skewed search results, etc. Trump's efforts to reform this situation are to be applauded!

Trump May Have Changed YouTube Forever
It looks like Twitter, Fakebook, and YouTube are going to have to be fair from now on. That's assuming that Trump can enforce his executive order.

FCC Commissioner Brendan Carr on Social Media Censorship
It looks like things are starting to happen. And right off the bat the FCC Commissioner states that the far left has been able to get social media platforms to censor not just conservative speech, but even neutral speech. Anyone who does not agree with their extreme point of view is discriminated against on social media platforms.
