Facebook’s former chief of security Alex Stamos told CNN reporter Brian Stelter on Sunday that something must be done to prevent conservative rhetoric from reaching tens of millions of Americans.
“People have a lot of options now,” Stamos complained. “They can choose their sources of news. They can choose the influencers they want to follow, and they can try to block anything that helps them question that.”
Lefts don’t like competition. If they could get one service for truth, like that AOC pays, The narration would be much easier to control.
Stamos then called for conservative voices to be removed from social media in the same way ISIS propaganda was removed from the internet.
“I think we need to do two things,” Stamos continued. First, there has to be intentional action by social media companies, collaborating together to work on violent extremism in the same way they did against ISIS. ”
Stamos recalled how Facebook and other major social media companies worked with the government to outlaw ISIS, saying the same approach should be taken with the conservatives.
“Second, we have to deny the ability of these conservative influencers to reach such huge audiences,” Stamos continued. “There are people on YouTube, for example, who have a larger audience than CNN during the day and are very extreme in promoting very extreme views.”
So what? Where does the constitution stipulate that most Americans should listen to fake news on CNN? The final part of his plan involves Orwellian forcing cable providers to remove OANN and Newsmax from their programs.
“Then we have to understand the problem of OANN and Newsmax,” Al-Shamuli said. “These companies have freedom of speech, but I’m not sure we need Verizon, AT&T, Comcast and bring it into tens of millions of homes. Letting people search for information if they really want to without pushing it into faces that I think is where we’re going here.”
Of course, if no one could watch a news channel, the work wouldn’t last long, and that’s the point. Plus, Google is already making sure that the information isn’t found. Lefts don’t mind conservative rhetoric as long as no one listens to it.
Don’t agree with CNN or MSNBC and you’re discreet? to me Embed a TweetYou are confused by ISIS.
