    Those given reasons would seem to be bogus.

    Yes, they tell their members (lol) not to watch pornography or mastur-bate.

    Funny. They come across as massive wa***** to me.

    So today something like 300 media outlets gather together to stand up for freedom of the press...

    Many of these same outlets championed on the unpersoning of Alex Jones. No sign of rampant hypocrisy at all.

    Bizarre to watch... important to bear in mind as well that a US court recently ruled that social media [in the form of twitter] was a ''public forum''... https://www.theguardian.com/us-news...itter-block-ruling-court-public-forum-account ... while accepting fully the argument that ''these social media platforms are private entities'' that doesn't seem to be the judicial attitude...

    Occupy London's facebook page appears to have been removed...


    Something is definitely going on...

    You might like this Vince...


    A 49 page memo that details how progressive media and the Democrats need to take back control from Trump.

    Part of it talks about shutting down voices that dissent from progressive ideas.

    I don't think these shutdowns are really a coincidence in the run up to the 2018 mid terms.

    It's just sad that instead of engaging and demonstrating how bad the ideas are, instead they are silenced giving them the cloak of victim and legitimacy.

    An example is that Facebook has changed its algorithm and as a result the traffic to conservative sites has dropped 93%... if that is trying to strangle your opponent I don't know what is.

    Takes some reading. Militant, and very American language. I do not know how effective it will be but it will certainly keep a number of people rolling in PAC money for a few years.

    RT here report the contents of Google exec's corporate teeth-gnashing following the USA's 2016 presidential election:

    Google's co-founder Sergey Brin wishes his employees to consider how they can influence national governance. We are expected to believe that this is not an general instruction to his engineers.

    The markets are aware of the biases of the social parliament, and they do not like it:

    In the above video we see a Google co-founder stating that he found the results of the 2016 election 'deeply offensive' and, after speaking of it in terms of 'the rise of fascism and the Communist refolution', gives what seems to be an oblique direction to his workforce that they should work towards 'a better quality of governance and decision-making'.

    Inevitably, some Google staff took the hint:

    Google has provided many excellent tools but, regardless of our individual politics, we should recognise the dangers of allowing any single corporation this much power to gate-keep news, especially given the decline of newspapers and the increasing reliance of younger people upon the Internet.
