Bowing down to a bully
This we know:
1. Joe and Mika helped put this treasonous rapist in the White House not only by giving him free air time, but by putting on "analysts" who had no business being on any network to lie about Democrats. My sympathy for them is nonexistent.
2. If anyone else tried to tweet what that bigoted mass murderer tweets, Twitter would ban that person in less than the time it has taken me to type this sentence, and I type 80 words a minute.
3. Jack Dorsey is gutless.
I don't understand why Jack Dorsey is immune from being hounded by the press until he provides an answer that isn't contained in a formal statement. I want to hear HIS answer. Does the press consider it off-color to go after him until he tells the truth about why he allows Donald Trump (and others) to say whatever they want, whenever they want, no matter how violent or libelous? I don't agree with everything that Mika Brzezinski says or that happens on that program, but she's absolutely correct here. If there is a formal policy that states Donald Trump is immune from consequences that others face, then I want to hear from Dorsey.
As an aside, Twitter wears me out. It's a festival of checkmarks all talking to each other while the rest of us float underneath like objects in a sewer - "...but some animals are more equal than others."
Certainly Twitter should include Trump if they ban bad information on the coronavirus. But does Twitter completely ban every nut that writes drivel on it? Just banning Trump would be discriminatory, and actually give some credence to his constant complaints (on Twitter).
The model for Twtr is like a late night talk show. If a World Leader agrees to be on it, that's a huge "Get" - and if the person makes a total and complete fool of themselves, all the better for the ratings - and people will be talking about it for days. For years Twtr has been an "Enabler" for many pseudo-celebrities to display their abysmal ignorance by ignoring Clements' advice and opening their mouths to "...remove all doubt" about being fools. It was fun and entertaining, and we had some great laughs, but now all the little Bluebirds are coming home to roost and it's time for us to consider - as with the advent of Nuclear Weapons - exactly what Man hath wrought?
I like to think that it was this column that got Twitter to change its approach...!!
I certainly don’t want social media determining what can or cannot be posted unless it is illegal. Being offended is no reason to block a tweet. Even the sick lies I see all the time
I don’t understand why the left thinks so little of the first amendment. Oh, and the whole constitution. It really is insane
