“This should trouble you immensely”

Clay Travis calls out the troubling behavior of the Big Tech media cabal:

Democrats impeached the president for his call with Ukraine’s president asking for Ukraine to look into this issue. Now that the Hunter Biden emails have surfaced, it appears the president was 100{5c1a0fb425e4d1363f644252322efd648e1c42835b2836cd8f67071ddd0ad0e3} correct. Did Joe Biden have a secret meeting with Ukraine officials, cover it up, and then lie about it?

That’s certainly what Hunter Biden’s email would suggest.

Now, again, you may not care. Or may not think a story like this should impact your presidential vote. But for a technology company to unilaterally and arbitrarily suspend all discussion of this issue?

That should be terrifying to anyone. Whether you’re a Democrat, Republican or an independent, this should trouble you immensely.

There absolutely, positively have to be content neutral rules in place for major tech companies, which are acting as default monopolies when it comes to online news distribution in our country. If those tech companies decide to favor one political party’s side over the other, that’s not proper behavior and we need major investigations to uncover how and why this is occurring.

Not allowing a story like this to circulate artificially constrains the marketplace of ideas and keeps the American public from being exposed to all arguments and perspectives about an important election decision. When editors at Twitter and Facebook are artificially manipulating which stories you see — and favoring one political party in the process — it’s also no longer possible for the tech platforms to claim they are not exercising editorial decision making.

Get rid of Section 230. End the platform/publisher dance. This isn’t that hard.
