Why Big Tech Will Lose the Censorship [sic] Wars

“Last Wednesday, former President Trump filed a class action lawsuit against Twitter, Facebook, and Google pursuant to their partisan censorship [sic] of viewpoints that conflict with those of their CEOs and employees. … he succinctly summed up his most compelling argument for suing: ‘If they can do it to me, they can do it to you.’ Ironically, this echoes what Bernie Sanders told the New York Times last March: ‘[Y]esterday it was Donald Trump who was banned, and tomorrow, it could be somebody else.’ If Trump and Sanders take the same position on Big Tech censorship [sic], the issue deserves serious attention. Yet the Democrats and the media have summarily dismissed the class action lawsuit as a publicity stunt while insisting that ‘private companies’ aren’t bound by the First Amendment. But it isn’t that simple.” [editor’s note: Actually, yes, it IS that simple – TLK] (07/12/21)
