Cut a video clip of US Senator Cory Booker questioning Twitter and Facebook CEOs about their supposed failure to censor Donald Trump after making a long speech about how questioning the US election is a "threat to democracy".
Watching it almost made me sick, but it's worth watching since it provides some insight into why social media platforms are censoring and behaving they way they do.
@katie thank you for posting this. Do you care to share which meeting this was clipped from? I'd like to watch the whole thing and get all the context.
I do not care for Facebook, but I am acknowledging Zuckerburgs read between the lines and his unwillingness to take the same steps as Twitter. Mr Booker is clearly extremely biased and himself he is helping to undermine our democracy.
This video is just, wow...
@jordan31 The whole video is on cspan at https://www.c-span.org/video/?478048-1/facebook-twitter-ceos-testify-senate-judiciary-committee
You'll quickly see a pattern: Democratic senators demanding more censorship and republican ones asking for less.
Ted Cruz was pretty based.
