TWTR and FB in the hands of our youthful partisans & What is to be done? @VDHanson @HooverInst

Thursday 28 May 2020 / Hour 1, Block B:  Victor Davis Hanson, Hoover, in re:  Opinion that Twitter and Facebook have exercised censorship; are calling what they do “fact-checking” when it’s in fact focussed censorship. Twitter fact-checked President Trump and then two Chinese propagandists.   We all theoretically have the choice not to put gas in our car; in 2002, we need to  use the Internet.  Northern California capital and its enormous ideology have now gone too far. W can see that they’ll pick and choose candidates, and shut other candidates down.  Like every other industry that uses the public domain there are certain modes of civility that these social media are not observing. Cyberspace is not yours, alone; it’s also the public’s.  We have he FCC, appointed by a president; who elected these people at Facebook?  They're [deeply] unqualified.  The techie, rich, youthful culture is sassy and snarky, and it overreaches.  That’s all right, but it may not use a public domain and turn it into a third-world machine. We all know that they’ve changed the order of Google screens. We all know that they assert that their noble ends justify their antidemocratic means. They’re pampered, inarticulate and arrogant.
