Ben Garrison: Social Media Freeway

…Their mainstream corporate media puppets are no longer mainstream. They’ve become irrelevant jokes. They’re losing viewers because they continually spew lies instead of the truth and more and more people have awakened to that fact. They know they can find the truth from citizen journalists on the Internet who make little if any money for their dedication. They depend on donations and views, but they’re now facing demonetization and shadow banning. Supposedly it’s all based on a terms of use policies—and the owners of social media capriciously determine the meaning of their own policies.
The war against the free speech of the right is likely to end badly for the Silicon Valley lefties who would rather delete than allow debate. Their habit of virtual book burning may end up torching their own skirts. They will wend up losing a vast amount of subscribers, viewers and advertisers. They will encourage entrepreneurs to set up their own free speech playing fields on the Internet.
We don’t need government to step in—we need competition!
