The command to "afford equal access", and the regulations regarding what constitutes "equal" IS government control. If you can't at least acknowledge that there's little point in continuing the discussion.
The government makes regulation, and their regulation left it to the media company to determine equal access.

So the government neither encouraged or prejudiced any particular political voice. If that happened, it was an act of the media company.

A party with an adverse action by the media company could file a complaint with the government.

Yep. And if media company fails to appease the state, fails to prove that they provided "equal" access, they'll face punitive measures.

And just what are the rules for who is eligible for this "equal" access? - again, this is control.

Regardless, you should be happy with the screeching of the Trumpsters. They want the same thing you do. The Florida law is more or less the same thing as the old equal time rules, applied to social media. The converging goals here are going to dovetail much like the way ACA went down. Dems borrowed a bad idea, signed into law by a Republican governor, and made it a national mandate. They're poised to do it again.

You're actually making the case that it's the media company who controlled "equal access". And their fear of the government that kept that "equal access" in fact, equal.

The government rule was that any politician was eligible.

The equal-time rule specifies that U.S. radio and television broadcast stations must provide an equivalent opportunity to any opposing political candidates who request it.

Out of curiosity, do you support the Florida "equal time" bill? Or is it different when they do it?

It sounds like you agree with it in principle.

That children should be shared equally in a divorce? Yes.

What you were talking about can't be found. Which is why I need it posted.

I don't judge a book by it's cover.

where as long as they don't discriminate
They are discriminating against trump and trump supporters

Just like gun laws are discriminating against convicted felons.

Learn what discriminating means.

There are laws against theft

So it isnt just the sheriffs opinion that what the guy did was wrong and he should not own a gun

The 1st Amendment protects speech that offends baby Stalins at FaceBook

It makes it hard to say they're discriminating against Trump supporters if you aren't banned for supporting Trump.

No, it doesn't. It doesn't "protect speech" at all. It prevents Congress from passing laws that prohibit free speech.

Denver Businessman Joe Oltmann: Dominion Voting Systems election fraud whistleblower.
Oltmann isn’t a whistleblower, he spread a lie about an employee of Dominion that resulting in death threats against him.

That’ll get you kicked off social media.

He wasn’t kicked off for being conservative, he was kicked off for harassment.

He was kicked off for expressing opinions about the 2020 election that FaceBook does not approve of

False. He targeted an innocent person that resulted in that person being terrorized.

Is that what you want to protect on social media?

Not really. It's just a prohibition on government passing laws that prohibit free speech. Of course, the point is that it doesn't apply to privately owned platforms. At all.
