    Thge difference between your web site and facebook is you, unlike facebook, aren't partnering with a NATO think tank to determine what posts are "fake" on your web site.

    Facebook actually is. On facebook we have a four person, government funded NATO team, in the form of the Atlantic Council's Digital Forensic Research Lab (DFR Lab) deciding what gets allowed and what does not. Aditionally, the Atlantic Council's Digital Forensic Research Lab (DFR Lab) is headed by a former National Security Council advisor for the last four years of the Obama administration, Graham Brookie, who is also its founder.

    facebok, of course, is also a top donor to the Atlantic Council, alongside Western governments, Gulf autocratic regimes, NATO, various branches of the US military, and a number of major defense contractors and corporations.

    So, yeah. There's the difference. And a damned great reason we dont wanna hear one more word about this so-called Internet Bill of Rights. These are the people who'sd be penning such a thing. Tread lightly, all.

    We already have a Bill of Rights.

    There are a lot of newspapers, and one publisher doesn't own the means by which they are delivered.

    "Australia" = you acting dumb and pretending that it makes a difference.

    The point is, FACEBOOK THREATENS PRESS and says that "it's our way or the highway"

    Which is exactly what I'm saying. They own the public square, the have a monopoly.

    And it's a worldwide monopoly.

    I'm not familiar with the Internet Bill of Rights. The internet is an interesting place. I talk with people from overseas all the time on the webs and we all have different rights I suppose. Sounds global governance stuff at first thought or Corporatism.

    I'm not sure if using the NATO think tank makes Facebook any different than this board or my site. Some of the stuff I do for work ties in with inventory for several corporations and Facebook on a rudimentary level so maybe I'm not impressed with getting IP's or names from a corporation or government and "xing them out".

    Now the Facebook donations and size do impress me. If we can use big government to declare them a monopoly or large enough for government over site we can tell them what to allow. Fair to Mark Z? I dunno. I'm on the fence about that one if I didn't say earlier.

    Don the Con threatens the press all the time.


    ….In my opinion the Washington Post is nothing more than an expensive (the paper loses a fortune) lobbyist for Amazon. Is it used as protection against antitrust claims which many feel should be brought?

    If the United States did pursue ant-trust against Facebook- which I am not entirely against- the government could break up FB like it did AT&T.

    But it still couldn't tell Facebook what content Facebook must have- anymore than the government can tell Fox or CNN what content they must have.

    It is not the public square if you want it to be then you will have to pay taxes to support it
    If you want it to be a public utility then you will have to pay to use it

    Facebook does not have the power to put any newspaper out of business nor can it tell newspapers what to print. Just because one corporate lackey shoots his mouth off is in no way proof of your claims

    If Facebook was a monopoly I would have no choice but to use it and guess what I don't use it at all and I don't have to neither does anyone else.

    You're missing the point. Trumpsters want to socialize the media. You know, so the truth gets out there.

    Of course you're not entirely against that. You're a liberal. Socialism is the goal. Trumpsters have no excuse.
