Immunity for Facebook and Google should be a thing of the past, especially when there is common knowledge of the slanted handling of users.
We (whoever we are) can’t sue these companies for manipulating us. This was dealt with in the past with things like movie theaters, when they use to do subliminal advertising like one frame in a hundred of popcorn, etc…but here this is a tad different, Wait, I am getting ahead of myself, see the info below.
Platform Neutrality section in this link is what is pertinent for this discussion.
This is going to be a tad different than my normal I write and you just need to read…this time check out a few facts…each link has specific info….from the Bill itself through the video…or videos.
As long as Bias exists, it should have a name …I wanted to name it like “Internetist” or “Newsist” or “manipulist, staying with the other ist’s like racist, sexist but I don’t have to name it ….
It already has a name, it’s called “THE MACHINE”…..Not an “ist” it is just the age-old Machine of corruption, it is a clandestine effort of almost invisible corruption. But first here’s a video about it.
And Not sure if this is going to work but a Facebook link or you can go to the C-span link above and find all the pieces….
But below should work especially if you are logged into FB already
Hope that worked…!
Anyway when back in the old days the political Machine either through Bribery or intimidation, lies whatever controlled government and/or inserted people into the government. Hell, it passed laws through people it put in power to pass laws like Poll taxes or Jim Crow laws. Possibly the equivalent in results to section 230 immunity…but if you watched the videos you see this could not be easily discerned. A lot like Mr Smith goes to Washington, where lies were spread and he was losing till the lies were proven wrong and the truth came out. But here we wouldn’t know till years later if at all.
All done ….. BY THE MANIPULATION OF BOTH VOTES AND INFORMATION…
So I didn’t have to invent the name “The Machine” it is perfect and it is well and chugging right along…
The Voting part, is sending out to just one side or the other reminders to go vote and not reminding all sides to vote.
The Information part, is promoting or blocking the promotion of news be it fake or real. When the machine starts choosing what and who to block and it follows specific ideological lines…..HOUSTON WE HAVE A PROBLEM!!!
It truly doesn’t matter which way this goes. As long as there is an effort to do this, which I put forth it is being done, if this is so, this should keep them from receiving the immunity. We also need to turn a deaf ear to …”Oh its an algorithm problem” that shit right there is bullshit!…a lie!..a fabrication! Wool is being pulled over your eyes…all those pussy hats, pull them up some…got to see through that crap.
If this is not curbed THE MACHINE gets what is best for THE MACHINE and not what is best for the people or at least what the will of the people is!
The worse part is, a lot of people are clueless of the assault!
Think & Vote!
