    Its reported that google removed Winston Churchill from a search for British Prime Minister, unfortunately it seems to have been one of those things that happened for only few hours and I missed it.

    BREAKING: US Justice Department To Propose Rolling Back Protections For Big Tech | The Daily Wire

    The Department of Justice is prepping legislation to roll back protections for big tech companies and make them more accountable for content posted on their sites.
    The DOJ is expected to introduce a bill to Congress as soon as Wednesday targeting tech companies and social media platforms’ protections under Section 230 of the 1996 Communications Decency Act, according to The Wall Street Journal.

    Section 230 protects a wide variety of web services, platforms, and content providers from liability for outside content that passes through their servers.
    To a lesser extent, the law also protects media outlets from liability for comments posted on their articles.

    A small number of web platforms “have had unchecked power to censor, restrict, edit, shape, hide, alter virtually any form of communication between private citizens or large public audiences.

    DOJ takes aim at Section 230, tech liability shield
    Platforms could lose immunity if they facilitate or solicit federal criminal activity, like trafficking illicit drugs. It would also create carve-outs for child exploitation, terrorism and cyberstalking, holding tech companies accountable for taking action on such content.

    Section 230, which was initially envisioned as a way to protect upstart tech companies from a deluge of lawsuits, now appears outdated as it protects powerful companies worth hundreds of billions of dollars.


    Sen. Josh Hawley, R-Mo., unveiled his latest legislation on Big tech’s liability shield in a new bill Wednesday.

    The “Limiting Section 230 Immunity to Good Samaritans Act” would allow Americans to sue tech companies that censor political speech or hide content from competitors.

    Hawley introduced a different approach to Section 230 reform last year with a proposal that would allow tech companies to win back immunity by submitting their algorithms and content moderation policies to audits determining if they are “politically neutral.” Seems like a pretty good/ easy idea! Just Prove that you are neutral and you can have your protections.


    Seems google shouldn't have gone and attacked "the competition" for NBC. This could change things in a very big way for social media platforms, search engines, news sites, and others that feed/ thrive off of the comments, and number of clicks for add revenue, from the public. Not to mention how it will affect everyday users like you and I (suppression of speech), you won't see NEARLY the amount of posts on social media and such, because they will have to be removed for fear of the platform being sued or held liable. This goes for Right and Left ideology and all that jazz too. So hopefully Big Tech does the right thing, and starts stepping in line with the laws.

    Trump asked Chinese President Xi Jinping for help in getting reelected
    Bolton described a conversation between the two world leaders at the June 2019 G-20 meeting in Osaka, Japan, where Trump told Xi that Midwestern farmers were key to his reelection in November 2020. Trump urged Xi to buoy his political fortunes by buying American agricultural products, linking a promise to waive some tariffs on China in exchange. Trump "stressed the importance of farmers and increased Chinese purchases of soybeans and wheat in the electoral outcome," Bolton wrote.

    Bolton also says that it's hard for him to think of a single decision Trump made during his stint at the White House "that wasn't driven by reelection calculations."

    People with something controversial to say will move away from twatter/facebook and youtube to decentralized services like bitchute, in fact at least one who started on youtube now posts his video's exclusively on bitchute.

    I personally think the we need the media to go back to what it was before the government removed the fairness doctrine, and revert some of this tribalism that it's removal has spawned.

    Won't happen
    All major news outlets (print-TV-web) are owned by 6 families. Most are uber-liberal, hell even FAUX News is starting to lean left.
    They like it that way. Notice they all follow the same click phrases.
    Journalism is dead for the most part... it's now media for 2 different political parties.

    Just because Fox "news" is starting to call donny boy on some of his lies doesn't mean they are leaning left. It just means there is someone with some integrity working there now. It is nice to see.
    Fear not, most of their prime time anchors are still irrational right wing nut jobs.
