    So I guess the reference to MAGA is hate speech.

    .
    Just purchased this book:

    [​IMG]
    The “media” used to mean television, radio, newspapers, and magazines; but today it largely involves social media, which has swallowed up all of these other forms and is now controlled by a small group of Silicon Valley titans who decide what billions of people are able to see and hear online.

    The convergence of old technology and new has centralized unimaginable power into the hands of a few gigantic corporations that now dictate how we communicate with each other and perceive the outside world.

    Media analyst Mark Dice details how the rise of social media that tipped the balance of power regarding the production and distribution of information has also resulted in a massive backslash from those conspiring to regain the influence they once held.

    Now conservatives are experiencing widespread censorship as the tech giants scramble to put the genie back in the bottle.

    The liberal media has launched an information war against President Trump and his supporters, and are using their monopolies to manipulate public opinion in order to further their aims of a socialist revolution.

    But but but muh free market! Muh laissez faire!

    Muh Facebook is a private company and they should be able to do whatever they want!

    If you don't like Facebook's policies, you're free to create your own version of Facebook, peasant! It only costs a few billion dollars. Easy, right?

    Anyone who disagrees with my wonderful pro-Big Business laissez faire economic policies is a Hillary supporter!

    True, and technically/legally correct.....but we are talking about the flow of information, which controls the public perception of events, politics, and ideologies.....this is different. This will ultimately control the directions our country takes, and it will have nothing to do with allowing truth to be distributed for the unsuspecting public to make appropriate decisions in their lives, and at the ballot box.

    If our country, based on the freedoms we enjoy is to survive......this needs to be fixed.

    If the next election goes as we hope it will......this will be addressed......MAGA :flag:

    If not.....then kiss America, as we know it, goodbye.....:fred:

    I agree 1000% that these entities are :
    1) going too far in their rightful place in the "media" or "opinion" arena
    2) will continue to do so in the absence or with the approval of government oversight or meddling.
    BUT_ at this juncture,..........how do you stop a train wreck as big as this, without becoming the train wreck that we all perceive Big Government to be already??
    All I can do as a solid US citizen who thinks for himself, is to refuse to add fuel to the fire, albeit a mighty small insignificant bit by myself. You need to analyze and form your own opinion of what "truth" is, today way more so than ever, as this idea has become mainstream with a younger crowd who sucks it all up as fuel for the fire.
    Yep, I'm old......

    Who cares...why cant conservatives offer appropriate alternatives owned by conservatives? News networks, Facebook, etc?

    Do you expect these people to be fair? Why support them?

    Facebook is heavily political and very much pushing a leftist agenda. Very pro antifa, anti traditional values, ant gun, anti law enforcement, anti flyover country.
